A Note from the Farmer

April 2013

Dear CSA Member

A CSA Spring Farm Visit is being planned for the first time this year for May 18th from 11-3. The Spring Farm Visit will be an opportunity for CSA member families to visit the farm and be part of how we transplant, seed and care for the vegetables at the beginning of the CSA season. Come and enjoy the activity of the early season farm. There is a lot of excitement in the spring and a great chance to be part of their CSA share right from the start of the season.

Please dress in comfortable clothing and shoes that you don’t mind getting in the soil. Bring your own picnic lunch and drinks. We will take our lunch break in the barn. There is a lot of activity in the fields in May and you will be able to see how our tractors and transplanters work, meet the wonderful Stoneledge Farm crew and help with some of the planting. A great day for the whole family. The directions to the farm can be found on the farm website www.stoneledgefarmny.org, click on Contact and Directions and go to the West Farm Address 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451. If you plan on attending, please send an e-mail to the farm at info@stoneledgefarmny.org. In case of any changes I will be able to e-mail you directly.

The Fall Farm Festival is also planned for September the 14th. It is never too early to mark your calendar for the fall visit.

The greenhouses are filling up quickly with seedling transplants. The plowing has started in the fields. The work of the season has begun. I post farm photos on the farm FaceBook page regularly at https://www.facebook.com/StoneledgeFarm. Take a look.

Happy Spring and Welcome 2013 CSA season.
for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
