A note from the Farmer

April 2014

Dear CSA Member

The greenhouses have been filled and now we are working to move the heartier seedlings into the hoop houses to make more room and are already starting on the second group of seedlings to go into the heated greenhouses. The warmer weather has finally settled in. Peter started plowing this morning and we will be transplanting the hearty spring seedlings by the end of the month. The never ending cycle of the farm.

It is also Maple season. New photos on the farm Face Book page https://www.facebook.com/StoneledgeFarm of the Bearkill Road Maple Products, Maple Syrup operation. Maple will be available for order by CSA members from the online CSA Marketplace once the delivery season has started.

The shares for the 2014 season are selling quickly. Some of the CSA sites are already full for the season. Why not pass on the news about CSA to your circle of friends, neighbors or fellow workers? If you have placed an order you will have received a confirmation e-mail once the order was completed. To check your CSA Membership log into your account from the farm website home page and click on “My Account”.
