Hello from Pitchfork & Crow!
We’ve finished up our planting plan for the upcoming year and boxes of seeds are filling our mailbox. It’s still early, but we’ll be sowing the first seeds of 2014 this week! In the coming weeks we’ll be putting up a new greenhouse, pruning the fruit orchards, and tilling the first ground for spring crops. It’s time to get this season started!
It’s also time to think about the Summer CSA. We’re officially accepting new CSA members for the 2014 summer season. We’ve posted the details and sign-up form on the Summer CSA page here: https://pitchforkandcrow.com/community-supported-agriculture/.
These are the 2014 Summer CSA program basics:
- 27 weeks – running from May 27th thru November 25th
- $620 share price – Last year’s shares ranged from $20-$30 per week with an average share value of $25.
- Two pick-up options! – Choose to pick-up either on Tuesday evenings at a central Salem location near the Willamette University campus or Wednesday evenings at the farm in Lebanon.
- Market-style pick-up – Vegetables will be displayed similarly to a market booth with quantities listed rather than prices, allowing you to choose your vegetables.
You can see photos of each week’s share for the past few years on our Flickr site!
We’re looking forward to a fun and exciting season full of a variety of seasonal organic produce! We hope you’ll consider joining us for the Summer CSA season. Further details and sign-up form on the Summer CSA page!Thanks for your support! Carri Heisler and Jeff Bramlett
