Late Spring-Early Fall
Our farm season begins in late February, when we begin seeding in our heated greenhouse. We raise over 40 varieties of vegetables and greens for our CSA including a wide variety of heirloom tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, root vegetables, winter squash and many varieties of lettuces and greens throughout the season. Our summer CSA begins in early June and runs for 18 weeks. We harvest for pick-up on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the CSA season, with the farm store open from 3-6pm. If you are interested, or want more information please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be introducing the option of a Flower Share to our 2018 CSA members. This is a really wonderful opportunity to enjoy local sustainable blooms on your table each week through the height of our growing season. CSA Bouquets will be available for pickup at our farm store, and will be ready for you on your designated pick up day. (Tuesday or Friday) In addition we will be offering bouquets to purchase individually during our pickup for $12/bouquet. Some blooms you can expect to see are: Snapdragons, Nigella, Cosmos, Verbena, Zinnias, Sunflowers, Scabiosa, Rudbeckia, Feverfew, Globe Amaranth, Anise Hyssop, and various medicinal and culinary herbs.
Late Fall-Early Winter
This 6 week extended season share includes fall greens, storage vegetables, (carrots, onions, shallots, beets, winter squash, and potatoes), apples, pasture raised eggs, a selection of cheeses from local Maine creameries, yogurt, farmstead granola, seeds saved from our own crops, and medicinal herb preparations for immune support such as Elderberry Syrup, Thyme Tincture, and Sacred Basil Honey. We are committed to using our own herbs and honey in our medicinal preparations. This share sells out quickly each year. We begin offering our Farmstead Shares in late summer. For more information on Farmstead Shared please contact us at milkweedfarm.@gmail.com.
Every aspect of our lives is, in a sense, a vote for the kind of world we want to live in.
