Hello from Pitchfork & Crow!
The countdown to summer vegetables has begun…
We’ve finished up our planting plan for the upcoming year and packages of seeds are filling our mailbox. It’s still early, but we’ll be sowing the first seeds of 2015 very soon! In the coming weeks we’ll be 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 2015 summer season. We’ve posted the details and a link to the sign-up form on the Summer CSA page here: https://pitchforkandcrow.com/community-supported-agriculture/.
These are the 2015 Summer CSA program basics:
- 27 weeks – running from May 26th thru November 24th
- $675 share price – Last year’s shares ranged from $25-$35 per week with an average share value of $28.
- Two pick-up options! – Choose to pick-up either on Tuesday evenings at the Willamette Heritage Center near downtown Salem or Wednesday evenings at the farm in Lebanon.
- Market-style pick-up – Vegetables will be displayed like a market booth with quantities listed rather than prices, letting you choose your vegetables.
You can find photos of past shares 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!
