Dear Folks,

Thanks so much for supporting our farm this season - 2018.  The fall was particularly challenging for the vegetables.  We are looking forward with anticipation to the 2019 season.  Hopefully the weather will be a bit nicer throughout the next year.  (by that - I mean - more normal). 

We will again be asking folks to join our CSA for 2019.  All the costs and number of weeks - 24 in all - two 12 week sessions will remain the same.  We will begin to work on the website - changing the dates and information right after Thanksgiving. 

If you have any questions, please let us know.  Thank you again for joining us on the adventure. 

Stay tuned for next year when we have more exciting ideas and plans for growing, harvesting and eating good things.
