Autumn beauty; nigella flowers in all stages.
This coming week will be the final share of our 18 week, Spring to early Fall Farm Shares. We are feeling relief to have made it these past 4 1/2 months with plenty of food for our farm members, work shares and our family. The season was challenging, with long periods of no rain, but our crops were mostly strong and resilient. As we head into this last week of harvest, we begin new tasks as we prepare for our Farmstead Fall Share. This past week we began harvesting bushels of Heritage Liberty Apples for the share! This share combines all that we raise for our winter eating; storage crops, hardy greens, roasting chickens, farm eggs, our own Organic and biodynamically raised apples, honey, and Medicinal Herb offerings such as Elderberry Syrup. You will also receive weekly yogurt, and cheeses from 3 local cheesemakers. Bi-weekly you’ll receive our farmstead Granola! The veggies are abundant and some will last for a good part of your winter, including onions, potatoes, winter squash, carrots and cabbage. The share is not cheap, but when we’ve calculated what you will receive, it’s a great deal! You would not be able to shop for all of this for $100 per week. If you join in the next week, we’ll include a beautiful potted Rosemary plant to keep through the winter for soups and stews and teas. This is a large Rosemary valued at $50. Already Joined? Come and get your Rosemary this week! Interested? Contact Lucretia at email@example.com. 6 weeks of Farm Bounty for your freezer, medicine chest and pantry for $600. Vegan Share includes all except meat birds, eggs, and dairy for $375.
Thyme tincture made with Organic Alcohol for the Farmstead Share!
Our Organic Medicinal Seed Packs will be a part of the share this season!
Looking forward, we will soon be posting our 2018 Farm Share Application. We hope you will continue to support our small, diversified farm. We’d love your feedback. Both positive comments, and constructive criticism help us to continue to improve what we do here, and that is our goal each year. Thanks for your support this season!
