Going Once, Going Twice…

Greetings from the Farm,SOLD! As we inch ever-closer to the start of the 2023 Summer CSA program in May, we’ve SOLD OUT of our 2023 Egg Shares! At this time, we have also closed sign ups for 2023 Winter Egg shares, which will reopen in September. Starting this Saturday, April 15th, the Beyer residence in the Grove Village will be hosting Off-Season Retail pickups for those south of Route 50. When selecting pick up, you will see this new location available starting Monday, April 10th. Please be respectful of residential drop sites! More information about this drop site below.

New Pick Up Location: The Beyer family has graciously offered their residence in the Grove Village as a pick up location for the Off-Season retail program. Pick up is from 11am-12pm on Saturday and is self-guided. Orders will be labeled with your name in a cooler and you will need to mark on the pick up sheet that you have received your order. Any orders not retrieved by 1pm are donated to the Beyer family. This is a private residence, please be respectful of the family and their property. If you encounter an issue with your order, please email farm@willowsfordfarm.com.

Egg FOMO?: We may have sold out of Egg Shares for the 2023 Summer season, but we will still be offering limited a la carte sales during the CSA. In addition, we will have eggs for sale at the Farm Stand in the Grange. A la carte and Farm Stand eggs will be available on a first-come first-serve basis, so please be aware that we may sell out from time to time. If you don’t want to miss out next year, we recommend signing up for the Summer CSA program early to lock in your shares for 2024. 

KT Pizza: Our friends KT Pizza will be posted up in the Farm Stand at the Grange Parking Lot today, Thursday April 13th from 4pm-6pm! Stop by and enjoy one of their delicious pizzas!

Celebrating the Earth:  We will be hosting our second annual Earth Day event at the Boathouse on Friday, April 21st. Chef Emily will be offering picnic boxes again, which are now available for preorder on Barn2Door. Please preorder by Wednesday, April 19th to lock in your delicious dinner!

2023 Off- Season Retail Program

Willowsford Farm will be offering limited a la carte sales of farm-fresh eggs, meat, pantry products and some root vegetables during the CSA off-season. Our growing season is over, but we have a bumper crop of root vegetables in proper storage to offer along with our Farm Stand pantry products and bounty of eggs. We understand that avian flu outbreaks in commercial operations and ongoing supply chain issues are causing a squeeze at local grocery stores, and we’ve decided to offer a trial program to continue sales of some of our products outside of the regular CSA season. If weekly participation is strong, we will continue to offer this smaller a la carte menu through April.  The farm is excited to trial this new off-season retail cycle, which will operate in the following manner:
  1. The Online Farm Store will be open for limited a la carte retail sales 10am Monday through 3pm Friday.
  2. There will be one location option for fulfillment: Saturday Pick Up at the Farm Pack Shed, with two time slots available, 9-10 am and 2-3 pm. We are not offering off-season home delivery.
  3. The cycle will function according to the following example: Orders placed between Monday 1/23 and Friday 1/27 will be available for pickup on Saturday 1/28 during the selected pick-up timeslot. Unclaimed orders will be notified via email EOB Saturday.
  4. A la carte purchases can be made using Store Credits and/or credit and debit cards. Please use your existing Barn2Door account. All inventory will be kept current in Barn2Door, please consider any low stock alerts to be accurate.
  5. Eggs will be available by the dozen, and inventory will be based on flock production. Our current flock has blessed us with abundance, but availability will be on a first-come first-served basis.
  6. Pantry products inventory will be according to current stock. Pantry product items are from the 2022 Farm Stand season and inventory will not be refreshed until the beginning of the 2023 CSA/Farm Stand season.
  7. Root vegetables will be available in current a la carte weights and packages.
  8. Meat bundles will be available for purchase based on current inventory. Throughout the off-season, we will be creating new bundle options as we work towards opening new space in our freezer.
  9. This will be ongoing beginning the first cycle, Monday, January 23rd tentatively running through Monday, April 24th. There will be no dedicated email communications announcing the Open/Close of the Online Farm Store, but there will be a reminder with a link to the Online Farm Store page in the weekly Farm Newsletter.
  10. This trial program is interest-based, and we encourage participants to spread the word to friends and neighbors. The Farm may announce and schedule a hiatus of retail sales or make changes to match interest in off-season purchasing. Any changes made will be communicated at least a week in advance.
  11. Questions about the off-season sales program can be directed to farm@willowsfordfarm.com

If you take a walk on the Farm Loop trail, you can get a behind the scenes view of our spring plantings. A close up of some growing goodness, this field has been host to our flock of hens so these little babies are living their best lives!
