From the Farmer

Week 17 – 9/26/2012
We’re moving! Week 18 Change in Location
 
Beginning next Wednesday, October 3 and Saturday, October 6, share pickups and the farm stand are moving to the Farm Garden Shed. The Farm Garden is located on the west side of Founders Drive, opposite the parking lots to the Pool and the (future) Sycamore House. This is just a tenth of a mile past the entrance to the Tenant House information center where shares are currently picked up. You will see the garden and shed on your right.
 
We are excited about this move! And hope you are, too. The shed is a beautiful, simple timber framed structure built by Cochran’s Stone Masonry of Lincoln, just a few towns over. Come enjoy the new digs and the Farm Garden.
 
CSA Meet and Greet with Mike Isabella 11 am – 12 pm Saturday, October 6
CSA members, you are all invited to a special meet and greet with Mike Isabella, Top Chef finalist and owner of Graffiato and Bandolero restaurants in Washington, DC. Mike will be at the Garden Shed from 11 am – 12 pm, just before Taste of Willowsford officially begins. Pick up your share, buy a veggie pot pie, and receive a complimentary copy of Mike’s new book Crazy Good Italian: Big Flavors, Small Plates.
 
A Taste of Willowsford, 12 pm- 4pm Saturday, October 6
Willowsford has a fun event on Saturday, October 6th from 12 pm – 4 pm: the second annual Taste of Willowsford. Last year’s event marked the opening of the community and was a great success, with over 700 families attending. This year should be no different. Kate Jansen (of Willow Restaurant and Pecan-Granola fame) and Mike Isabella (Top Chef finalist) will return for cooking demonstrations. There will be local fare, hayrides, farm tours, new home previews (we’ll have several new builders), wine and beer pairings, a potting station, an apple cider press, bluegrass music… and of course CSA pickup and the farm stand, both in the garden shed at the Farm Garden. 
 
CSA Potluck: Sunday, October 21 at the Barn. Save the date!
Mark your calendars for a farm potluck on Sunday, October 21. We hope you’ll come up to the farm at 5 pm for a fall tour and potluck for CSA members and Willowsford neighbors. We’ll eat outside if the weather is nice, or in the barn or greenhouse if not. Please let us know if you’d like to help organize the afternoon! To RSVP call (571) 297-6900 or email us at info.willowsfordfarm.com
 
Be great,
 
Mike
