Welcome Fall Shareholders! We here at the farm are excited to have all of you be a part of our fall CSA season. We will be kicking off the season this Saturday August 18th. at 10:30 am. with our gathering and your 1st. pickup as well as Brunch on us! I realize most of y’all are not new to the our program here at the farm and some of you have been apart of our CSA for years. That being said of course you can come and get your basket when the farm opens to the public. Y’all know the drill…but if you want to come and have a little brunch and hangout talk with the newbies that would be wonderful because you know this is a slow food system and heads & tails different then going to publix or Krogers. It takes some time to understand how it all works and to feel at home and part of the hippest little joint this side of Nashville.
Now addressing the newbies to our CSA: remember to bring your flower snips (we have some here too if you forget) and if you want to get in on the market’s fresh pies, breads and muffins get here a little early…they will be gone before you know it. You can always set your goodies back until you are ready to leave…I tell you all about it when the gathering starts. One thing to understand right off is this is YOUR farm too…you can cut flowers, herbs all day long if you want too. These are all part of your CSA share. This is your place to breath and relax…take your time and enjoy it.
We’ll kick off this new season kinda at the end of a hot, dry summer season and believe me our last summer CSA pickup got a taste of how bad it was for farming during their last pickup. We will be bring our summer shareholders back for missed pickup dates in the weeks to come as well.. Right now it is the peak of the tomato season and eggs plant coming in. You shares will start off reflecting this late summer season and you too may feel the pinch of the outcome farmers all across this land is feeling from this extreme heat and drought we all have faced this summer…I will tell y’all though the weather as gotten better (a lot better) so I think we are in for a wonderful fall season just like it was April through early July for our spring and summer shareholders. So with that being said…your shares will start out on the not so great side but they will get better and better with each pickup. This is a great time to dig in to harvesting those flowers and herbs while are all part of your shares.
