Week #11 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

There is more rain in the forecast. Due to the excessive rain, we are going to harvest a lot of tomatoes and peppers this week. Sweet peppers and tomatoes will fill most of your share this week. Please enjoy these tomatoes and peppers, we do not know how much longer they will last. You will also notice a little taste of fall in your share this week. Orange carrots and collard greens! We just posted an overview of the fall greens in the field. Check it out on Instagram.

We invite you to our annual Fall Farm Festival.

Only a few weeks away! Saturday, September 1st here on the farm. 11:30-3 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds NY 12451. Bring your family for a great day on the farm. It is a great day to come to the farm and see how your vegetables are grown, meet your farmers, and walk the fields. We have the grill hot and will have pork as well as grilled Sweet Corn along with a Stoneledge Farm vegetable chili made by Kim and Mickael of Paradis. There will be Stoneledge Farm Coffee, and water. We ask that members bring a dish to share so that lunch is a giant potluck get together. If possible, please bring your place settings, utensils, and cup. No pets, please.

Make a getaway out of it and enjoy the Catskills! Use this link and plan your trip today.
