Dear CSA Member
This is the last delivery for the 2016 season.
It has been a beautiful and mild fall. All the leaves on the trees have just about fallen. We are now turning towards the bare tree limbs of Winter! Before you know it the fields will be blanketed with white glistening snow.
We would like to thank everyone who was a member this season and a special thank you to the CSA site coordinators. It has been a wonderful season and we are looking forward the the next! The 2017 season is now open and you are able to log into your CSA Member Account from the farm website home page and place your 2017 CSA share order. We do appreciate early sign ups as most of our purchasing for the next season happens in December. We will be holding the 2016 prices until January 1st. There is a three pay option available again for 2017 which breaks down the share payment over three months time.
We just planted our garlic crop for 2017. The seed is the garlic that was grown this year. Each head is split into cloves and the cloves planted. Each clove will become a garlic head next season. The cloves overwinter in the field to sprout in the spring. The cycle continues.
This week your shares will be heavy. You will be getting Winter Squash, Carrots, Beets and large Radishes! These items are perfect for a warm fall feast! You will also be getting sage this week that is beautiful and a great garnish for any fall recipe! (Goes Very well with Turkey)
Marketplace items are available with many vegetables, fruit in bulk, coffee, chocolate, honey and maple. Place an order for great gift giving this season. Please order by 3PM the day before your CSA delivery to make sure we can fill your order to be delivered with the last CSA shares.
We wish everyone a Happy & Healthy winter!
Enjoy the Harvest and Thank you again for being a CSA member.
Candice for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
