Spotting a Thumper or Two!

Greetings from the Farm,We’ve got Easter on the calendar and bunnies in the beds! While diversity of wildlife is highly encouraged, we’d prefer it if our rabbit friends left our produce alone! Starting next 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 will be shared next week.

Off-Season Special: We will be offering bread from our partners at Lyon Bakery this week for our Off-Season retail program! For procurement purposes, bread orders must be placed before 3pm today, Thursday April 6th. Need a last minute bring for an Easter get-together? We’ve got a great selection of pies and quiches from our partners at Harvest Symphony still available! 

Eggstravaganza: We had a great time at Eggstravaganza this year! A big thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello and learn about the Conservancy and Farm. Congratulations to our two lucky golden egg winners! If you haven’t already, please redeem your special code through our Barn2Door storefront or email for more information.

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

Photos :  Before transplanting, the flats in the greenhouse get to spend some time in the great outdoors! Giving them time to “harden off” and prepare to thrive in Willowsford soil. Check out the great close up shot of the arugula…yum! Farmer Eric spent some time on the tractor this week spading in cover crops so it’s ready for seed, what a view!
