Here we are at the end of another CSA season! It feels like a real accomplishment that we were able to feed our CSA members for all 23 weeks of the season. I thought 2020 was a challenging year, but I think 2021 has been even harder. If you can remember all the way back to the spring, we had weeks and weeks of rain and we were really far behind in planting because it was just too muddy to get into the fields. Then we had to struggle with the labor shortage that so many other businesses had to navigate. We usually have a farm crew of about 20 people and this year we had just 15 people. I don’t know how they pulled off all the farm work each week and got food to all of our CSA members–thank you to everyone on the crew! I know everyone is exhausted from putting in such a hard season.
We are so thankful to you–all of our CSA members. Your commitment to our farm makes it possible for us to get through each season. It makes it possible for us to keep growing food for you year after year. Farming is challenging for anyone who does it for a living, but knowing we have a home for all of the food we grow takes one huge challenge out of keeping our farm going.
We can only hope that 2022 is a little less bumpy for all of us! Have a great winter and we will look forward to seeing you in the spring!
