As we begin our CSA season, I want to express my gratitude to our CSA members. Those of you who have been with us for many years, and those of you who are joining us for the first time this year. Our CSA members make our farm possible. Really, I do not think our farm would be able to continue without your support.

Your payments at the beginning of the year finance our farm for about the first 6 months of the year, when we have so many expenses: seeds, compost, row cover, mulch, sand bags, coolers, equipment, labor, and on and on. By joining our CSA you are committing to a whole season’s worth of vegetables. That means we can plan for how many sugar snap peas or acorn squash or melons we need to grow. You also give us the flexibility to feed you with the food that is abundant on the farm each week. Our CSA members are really the foundation of our farm.

We also enjoy the many great relationships we’ve formed with CSA members over the years. And it is incredibly satisfying for us to know the people who are benefiting from all our hard work growing food.

The weather this spring has been more agreeable than average for growing crops. We have many acres of plants growing and we are excited to start feeding you! Thank you again so much for your support. I don’t think I will ever be able to put into words how much it means to Wyatt and me.
