Farm News

Juan finished trimming all the trees today.  Tomorrow he and Oliver will begin to repair crates.  Oliver has been working on the Mahindra tractor for a couple of weeks.  The pigs are doing great!  We have 8 pigs - growing and eating! We sent two steers to the butcher last week.

Gregg is making jam and applesauce. He started to plant kale seeds in the greenhouse this week.  The season is beginning early!

I am doing the taxes:(

 

Markets and CSA News

Gregg and Oliver are stilling going to two markets every week until the end of February.  Oliver is at St Luke's in Alexandria on Fridays and Gregg is at NGS on 16th St on Tuesdays.

Now is the time to sign up for the 2017 CSA.  We are making decisions about whether to accept new stops for Wednesday so if you intend to get a drop off at your business on Wednesday throughout the summer, email us ASAP.

  If you know of a good location for a farm stand on Saturdays, please let us know.  It would need to be on private property - business, church, store, etc and have great visibility and potential for foot or car traffic.

 

Here is our current market schedule for the spring.

Saturdays - St Luke's, Bush Hill and Westminster

Thursdays - East Columbia Library

Tuesdays - DOT, NGS, River Towers, and Woodlake Towers

Wednesdays - So far we have deliveries scheduled for River Park, Senate Square Towers, Navy League Building,

You can go to the website and sign up now! www.orchardcountryproduce.com   You can pay with a credit card, arrange scheduled payments or pay with a check in the mail. 

Discount of 6% are automatically counted in if you sign up for all three main seasons, spring, summer and fall.

If you send a check you can take an additional 4% discount. 

Contact us if you have any questions.
