During the growing season, we plant, care for and harvest a large selection of tasty vegetables using a sustainable agriculture system (for further explanation and details, see, “Why We Will Not Certify“.)
For 24 weeks, from May through November, we provide a weekly harvest box to each of our shareholders. A harvest box contains a share of that week’s fresh-picked harvest. Shareholders may either collect their boxes at a central location in town or they may pick up their boxes at the farm.
As a shareholder, you receive a weekly harvest box of vegetables, occasional recipes and farm updates. In so doing, you will also be supporting a small, local family farm whose farmers use sustainable and environmentally sound farming practices. Best of all, you will be eating safely and well!
What’s in the Box – November 26, 2013
Salad Mix, Long Island Cheese Pumpkin (great for pie), Potatoes, Cilantro, Rutabage Greens (use like kale), Bok Choy
It is satisfying to present this final box of the season, two days before Thanksgiving. Please bring a box, bag or basket to take your vegetables home in today, if possible. Thank you so much for your membership this season in what turned out to be an amazingly beautiful one for weather and ease of growing. I will be sending out an end of the season update next month and will let you know about signing up for Growing Season 2014!
In the meantime, we wish everyone of you a happy and beautiful Thanksgiving. I will leave you with a little blessing that we have been singing every night around our dinner table since our son, Isaiah, and I learned it at a Waldorf Parent Child class fifteen years ago.
Blessings on the Blossoms
Blessings on the Root
Blessings on the Leaves and Stems
Blessings on the Fruit.
We thank you for our food.
