IMPORTANT - An Early Ending to the CSA Season

Dear Members,

With near-record rainfall this year, our garden has taken a beating and we are terminating CSA vegetable shares earlier than planned.  Our last Vegetable CSA delivery will be TUESDAY, November 20th in time for Thanksgiving.  We love our vegetable members and regret that we cannot continue to deliver them to you this year.  Our garden is soaking, spent, and begging for a rest.

The good news is that we will continue to deliver eggs and meats throughout the winter for members who want them.  Members who continue with egg or meat shares will receive monthly rather than weekly or bi-weekly deliveries.  Eggs and meats do not need to be delivered weekly or even bi-weekly.  Monthly deliveries help us save costs.  Optional vegetables will be offered a la carte on a first-come-first-served basis as they are available to our winter egg and meat share members. 

If you would like to continue with egg and meat shares, please reply promptly to this email with quantities of eggs and meat you would like each month.  The first monthly delivery will be November 29th and then the 3rd Thursday of each month thereafter.  The schedule will be:  

  • Nov 29
  • Dec 20
  • Jan 17
  • Feb 21
  • Mar 21
  • Apr 18

If you would like to discontinue entirely, that's o.k., too. We will issue refunds this weekend for members who have paid beyond November 20th, and for any eggs you have not received in recent weeks.  If we don't hear from you by Monday, November 26th, we will automatically discontinue your subscription, refund your money, and hope you will join us again next Spring.  

If you are looking for farm food this winter, we highly recommend Fall Line Farms Local Roots, the online farmer's market that we also participate in along with other local farms.  Check it out at https://flflr.luluslocalfood.com/  This is our "go to" farm each winter when our gardens are spent, and even during the year for products we do not grow or produce.  We hope you will like it as much as we do.  

We absolutely and appreciate your support of our farm and CSA this year.  It's been a good year and we hope to do even better next year. 

All the best, Patti
