Happy New Year!
Hope you are all well. Although it is a little hard to think about summer today we are already getting ready for the planting season—seed orders, field plans, rotations… We are also ready to start taking 2018 CSA sign ups. Our share set up will be consistent to last year—same price, same pick up system, same length. We do have eggs available as an add on–first come first serve. We may also have bread available as an add on. Please let us know if you are interested.
Here is some information about our 2018 shares:
Our shares this year are all 20 week shares that begin the first week in June and run until mid-October. We will stop the boxes for one week at the beginning of August to give us a chance to regroup and our customers a chance to catch up on the food.
Our prices will remain the same this year- $25/week with a minimum 20 week commitment.
We will again offer an early payment discount for full payment before Valentine’s Day(10%) and the end of March(5%). Flower shares will be available too or you can add a small bouquet onto your produce share for $5/week.
Pick up time/day is still Tuesday. We will drop off a little later this year. Pick up is from 2 or 3PM- 6PM. Let us know if you will be later than that.
If you are going out of town during your share, you can have a friend or neighbor pick up your share. Or if you tell us to stop your box for up to two weeks, you can come to the growers market at your convenience and load up and we will call it even. If neither option works, let us know and we can donate the contents of your share to someone.
As always, we will continue to focus on growing high quality certified organic produce. We very much believe that taste is an important part of nutrition and health, and that vegetables should look good and taste delicious. When we choose varieties to grow, taste is our top priority. We do not spray anything and make decisions with improved soil health, customer health and farmer health in mind.
If you are interested please contact us and we will get you a CSA sign up form. When you are ready to sign up, please return it to us with a check. We ask for a $100 deposit to hold your place with full payment due by May 15. Full payment before Feb 14th for a 10% discount and full payment before March 31 for a 5% discount. We also ask for a $50 refundable box deposit. We will return your box deposit when we have both of your crates at the end of the season.
If you are new to our CSA please visit our website— walnutrunfarm.com for more details and information. We will update it soon(some CSA info is dated), but past blog posts will give you an idea of what we include each week throughout the season.
If you are interested in making shares available on a sliding scale to everyone, please contact us about donations.
And let us know if you have any questions. Thank you so much and looking forward to the season!
