CSA Week 17

Our final week for the 2015 season has arrived!  A big Thank You to all of our wonderful shareholders that have supported us through another fantastic and very rewarding year.  As I've come to realize, almost nothing on the farm goes exactly as planned, but as I reflect back over the past 17 weeks there have been many more ups than downs, and I am already looking forward to next season.

Sometime in the near future (hopefully before the holidays) we'll be sending out a brief survey to all shareholders for feedback on the past season.  We would greatly appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete it and help us to make next year even better!

Chickens went from pasture to freezer on Monday as planned.  Average weights were right on target around 5 pounds each. Along with the chickens, this weeks shares include:

  • Leeks
  • Green Onions
  • Parsnips
  • Tomatoes
  • Radishes
  • Turnips
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • Cayenne Peppers

The parsnips look like over sized white carrots, they kind of smell a bit like carrots too.  They are delicious in soup and stews, roasted, baked, or boiled and mashed.
