What’s in the Bag — Week 13

Dear CSA Member

The Annual Farm Festival is this upcoming Saturday, September 8 from 11:30-3:00. Open to all Stoneledge Farm CSA Members.

Come meet your farmers, walk the fields and see how and where your vegetables are grown. Please bring a dish to share for our pot luck luncheon and your own place setting. The farm will provide pork and corn on the cob from the roaster, fresh fruit and water, freshly brewed coffee. Kim and Mickael Paradis of Paradis to Go, http://paradistogo.com/about.html, 114 Fourth Ave New York, NY 10003 will be manning the roaster. We are so happy to have Kim and Mickael joining us this year.

There will be Wagon Rides around the fields, freshly dug carrots to pick up and take home. Before you leave take time to pick a fresh bouquet of flowers. Please bring your own scissors and container to transport your bouquet. The flowers are near the end of their summer glory, but still hold some beautiful colors. All of our Market Place products: honey, maple syrup, coffee, preserves, salsa  will be available for purchase.
