Our next winter CSA pick-up coincides with Canadian Agriculture day. We are celebrating with a little draw prize, also sharing in a farm food processing experiment. We have created a vegetable and fruit (all from the farm) roll-up. We will be giving out samples at the Pick-up tomorrow and one lucky member will win a gift basket from the farm. “Unroll the roll-up to win!”
Also, as a reminder, there is still pork roasts and sausage from the farm available for sale… and we are signing up new folks now, so don’t forget to reserve your spot!
You can find the February Newsletter on the Newsletter page. It give a little picture of winter life at the Saugeen River CSA… compared to summer it is like day and night, or you could say summer and winter!
In February I open the opportunity for people on the CSA waiting list to sign up for the coming season… so anyone who knows they want a share, even if you are not able to make a deposit now, let me know you are in so I can hold your space.
Seeds have arrived, and in early March the greenhouse will start to green up!
Just a reminder for the Winter CSA members, there will be a pick-up tomorrow, January 2nd from 2 – 6 pm. I know days of the week and schedules can be hard to keep track of this time of year… More news soon.
Just a reminder that the Winter CSA will start on Tuesday December 5, from 2-6 pm. Pick-up is in theroot cellar, doorway is on the north side of the yellow cabin building. Pick-up is every other week, so if we don’t have to change the schedule due to weather the dates are:
December 5 and 19
January 2, 16, and 30
February 13 and 27
March 13 and 27
And we’ll see how long our produce lasts from there.
Aster Lane Farm’s bread is amazing and easy to order. Go to http://www.asterlanebread.com to see what they do. Send them an email to email@example.com and get on the list to order from their weekly selection.
Reminder that the next winter share is tomorrow, Friday December 30 (days can get confused this time of year). Also, I am in the midst of the seed order for the coming year, and anyone able to make a first payment, if you haven’t already, would help with this cost. I am also offering a new option for membership: a biweekly pick-up. If you don’t want a share every week, you can now get one every other week! The pricing is clearly laid out on the CSA Economics page of the website. If you have any questions, please ask! A newsletter with details of why this new option will be out in the nest few days.
Happy New Year!!!
