Greetings from the Farm,
Winter is coming! Quite literally, our 2023 Winter CSA begins on Wednesday, November 1st! Below this paragraph we’ve included a refresher for how the Winter share works and will be distributing an FAQ this Monday. Placing a Custom order this week will be for the first Winter fulfillment next week! If you are a 2023 Winter delivery customer, we will be making some slight adjustments to the Winter delivery schedule. You will receive an email this weekend with more information about this change. There’s a lot of important information in this week’s email about our upcoming events and CSA, if you have any questions, please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Weeks Cycle: The Online Farm Store is open for business! We are starting 2023 Winter with a bang! Place your order between Thursday October 26th and Sunday October 29th by 12pm for fulfillment on November 1/2!
Winter is Here: Our Winter CSA begins next week and this is your friendly reminder that Winter fulfillment is shifting! Winter pickups are moved to Wednesdays (bi-weekly) and delivery to Weds/Thurs. Delivery may shift to only Wednesday depending on total number of orders. The Farm Newsletter will be distributed Wednesdays during the Winter season and the Online Farm Store will be open Weds-Sun the week before pickup/delivery.
Picked and Paid Policy Update : Beginning with the 2023 Winter CSA program we are announcing a major update to our Delivery and Pickup Policy: Picked and Paid. We will be distributing a copy of this policy via email and will have printed copies available at the Farm Stand and Boathouse for review. When signing up for 2024, you will receive an email with a link to review and agree to the policy to complete your registration. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to streamline the fulfillment process for our staff, volunteers and CSA members! If you would like to review the policy in full, you can do so here.
Harvest Market: Join us this Saturday, October 28th from 9am-1pm for our first Harvest Market at the Farm Stand! We will have makers, vendors, a wildlife exhibit, Farm Tours and more! Parking will be at Sycamore House across Founders Drive. This event is open to the public!
CSA Potluck! : Join us on Saturday, November 11th for a Farm Potluck! Sign Ups available for all sorts of dishes and this is a great opportunity to get to know your CSA community. RSVP for the event here.
