Reminder to Order for Friday & Sign up for CSA

Posted 1/16/2018 2:48pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hello!

The spinach has persevered and we plan to pick on Thursday, as long as it is sunny as predicted. Get your order in now for a whole gamut of produce and provisions for pick up at the barn this Friday! Email Jordan Brothers* your seafood pre-order, too! Pick up your White Barn order anytime 12-6. Jordan Brothers is there 2pm to 6pm.

Oh, and you guessed it, since this reminder is sooo late we are extending the ordering deadline once again to Friday at 7am!

We have some new producers on the virtual market this week: Elmhurst Farm is supplying lots of new and different cuts of beef from their small family farm in Norfolk. (Interesting note: their cows get spent grains from Trillium Brewery as part of their feeding program!) Beef bones for broth are available for any of you new-age/old-school healing experts out there! and lovers of delicious soups, of course!

Our favorite farmer from Dover just dropped off big orange sweet potatoes, a couple boxes each of red and green cabbage, And! a box of Butternut Squash. It is hard to resist the familiar!! Plus Butternut actually becomes sweeter in storage and, as mentioned above, we are in the height of soup season. Knock out those sniffles and coughs! How about some cayenne to add to the mix? Our whole dried peppers can be sliced thinly just a little section at a time, or go Thai style with a mortar and pestle and make the whole thing into a curry paste along with some garlic, salt, and magical special ingredients (lemongrass? ginger? dried shrimp? fish sauce? someone help me here!)

Decisions have been made and dates have been set regarding . . . . 

CSA 2018!

No more pesky wax boxes, accompanied by boring videos about how to open and break them down sent by the farmer, and, oh, the stress of bringing it back each week. (we will not miss paying for those non-recyclable wax coated budget-suckers either!)

But! We realize we have a dedicated faction who like having a pre-determined share to cook with each week. So - the farmers will dictate what goes in the share via signs indicating CSA items at the farmstand. You just bring your grocery bags and pack all of the items right off of the shelves at the stand. Double check the list before you head out and you're done!

CSA Shares will be split into three seasons:

Spring is 5 weeks, $100, 5/11-6/8, Fridays

Summer is 20 weeks, $400, 6/12-10/25, choose Tue, Wed, or Thurs

Fall is 4 biweekly pick-ups over 8 weeks, $160, 11/2-12/14, Fridays

We are having so much fun with the online marketplace that we decided you can "purchase" your share online. Sign-ups will be first-come, first-serve and the online store will monitor how many spots remain for each slot and generate a list of members as well. Perfecto! There is a point when you're checking out that you are asked to choose a pickup location - just choose "CSA Sign-Up." Complete your order by sending your check to the farm.

Or . . . 

For those who prefer free choice, sign up for the CSA Card!

We are foolish lunatics that add 10% to your card! We are tightening up the game, however, and are only offering this deal only until, appropriately, April Fool's Day, April 1st, this year. (Previously it was until May 1st).

After April 1st, we add 5% to cards purchased or reloaded for $200 or more. You can buy anything we sell at the farmstand except seafood from Jordan Brothers and plants during Saturday of our Annual Plant Sale. Your card doesn't expire even though we would love you to spend your whole card the same season it was purchased. Payment for CSA Cards by cash or check only, please!
