Share Forecast and news from the farm, August 5, 2009

Lots of action today!  First, please don't forget that order forms AND PAYMENT IN FULL are due by 8:00pm (the end of tonight's distribution) for our 2nd Market Day.

In other news, Norwich Meadows Farm is working overtime to get the amazing produce to us.  Here's correspondence from Martha, bringing us the latest from the farm concerning operations, weather, increasing share sizes, and the late blight that you may have been reading about online or in the NY Times lately.

 

In the next few weeks as we increase production on the farm, you will notice an increase in your CSA shares.  Please keep that in mind during leaner times when the share might be slightly less.

The last few weeks have been very hectic between a stolen truck, rainy cool weather, new personnel, and starting a new. We too have been afflicted by late blight. However, thank God, our tomatoes in the high tunnels have not suffered and we are taking precautions to make sure we do not get blight in the greenhouse.  Many crops have been delayed due to the cool weather such as the abundance of squashes, cucumbers, and tomatoes until this last week. The weather continues to be a concern with the threat of rain almost everyday and temps barely reaching 80 f. Having said all of that things are settling down some now as we settle into somewhat of a routine. This year we are adding two rented farms one for crops and the other for livestock.We will be doing goat, lamb, beef, and Turkey in addition to the chicken.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

Peace and light, Martha

Second Market Day August 19th - order deadline is August 5th!

It's that time again - our second Market Day will take place on August 19th!

We have posted a new Market Day Order Form  below that contains additional information and, more importantly, additional items. Please begin filling out the Order Form so that it can be returned at next week's (August 5th) distribution. We prefer you pay by check if you can. If, however, you pay by cash, please try to pay the exact amount owed as we may not be able to offer you change. Please be aware that the complete Market Day order must be emailed to the farm on the evening of August 5th, so there will be no exceptions for late payments. If anyone has any questions feel free to email Lloyd, HA's add-ons coordinator.

FYI, August 19th is also a bi-weekly add-ons and fruit day so make sure you bring enough bags for everything!
