Hello!

Don't forget you have just about 6 weeks left to get the early bird pricing for the 2020 CSA season. Believe it or not, we start planting in just 6 weeks! We are getting the seeds ordered and greenhouse ready for our first day of planting. We haven't had much of a winter until now and Jimmy the groundhog makes an appearance in just two weeks! That means veggies and pizza nights are just around the corner. We added a small, every week share to this season's offerings as well. Send us an email if you have any questions about signup, working at the farm in exchange for veggies, cooking classes, pizza nights or just to say hi!

Stay safe this weekend if you are traveling and stay warm!

Here is the signup page for this season. Sprouting Acres CSA signup page

Have a great weekend!

The weather looks chilly over the next couple of days and then quite a warm-up next week for the holiday break. Thanks to those of you that signed up early for the 2020 season. We have started our seed orders and filling propane tanks in preparation for the new season. We wanted to remind you that if you haven't signed up yet for our CSA, there are just a few more weeks to get the early bird discount. We also offer a returning member discount for last season members and members that may have taken a season or two off and want to come back. 

We added some on-farm cooking classes that you can view here. 2020 Cooking Classes Also don't forget, we offer Sprouting Acres gift cards in any denomination for stocking stuffers or gifts this holiday season. We can process them over the phone and mail them out the same day to make it in time for the holiday. They can be used for cooking classes, farm products at markets, and at the farm for pizza nights. 

If you have any questions or need a gift card, please feel free to contact Andy at andy@macwatson.net or give him a call. 608-469-2319

Happy Holidays!!!

Good cold December morning! 

We are getting our planning started for the 2020 season we are ready for signups. The computer program is very user-friendly for returning members as well as new members. Just head to the signup page link to get started. Prices have stayed the same as last season with early bird signups and returning member discounts as well. Don't forget to take advantage of these discounts. 

We are happy to announce we finished the second pizza oven at the farm and will have it up and running for our first pizza night in May. We hope to be able to make even more pizzas at one time to help speed up the process a bit. We had a pretty successful first pizza season and we can't wait to start it all again in May. We are planning on new menu items as well as a build your own pizza option. We also hope to have more produce available as well as more canned goods too. Don't forget, we have gift cards available that can be used at our market stands as well as on the farm for pizza nights. They make great stocking stuffers and gifts for the holidays and birthdays. We also have a couple of cooking classes listed right now with more to follow soon.

We start ordering seeds this month and begin planting in just about 90 days. We depend on early signups and payments to help us get the seeds ordered, propane tanks filled, and potting mix ordered. If you have any questions about anything involving csa, gift cards, pizza, or cooking classes, please don't hesitate to email or call! If you have any questions about next season's weather forecast, get in line. Have a great holiday with friends and family and we hope to hear from you soon!

Hello and welcome to the last box of the season! We finally made it to the end. Things are getting cleaned up at the farm and we are pulling in the last of the crops that can handle the cold. If you got a canning share and didn't get it last week, you will have one this week at your site. They are in brown paper bags with your last name on the bag. Please don't forget to take them home. Also, please don't take the black totes home this week since we have trouble getting them back over winter. Thanks again for a great season of support. We couldn't do it without you. Here is this week's Newsletter Link.

Have a great winter and holiday season!

Come on out to the farm at 1746 Hwy 73 in Cambridge from 4-8 for some excellent food, music, games and more! We also have some new cooking classes added for next month at the farm with more to follow. Head to this cooking classes link for more info.

Hello and welcome to week 19! This is the last box for a lot of you. We have had a good season overall with some cold and wet weather early on but we made it through and have a bounty here at the end. Thanks so much for signing up with us this season. If you got a canning share and this is your last pickup, you will also pick that up. They will be in brown paper bags with your name on them. They are all quite delicious and we think we got a good mix for the 6 and 12 jar shares. Send us an email if you have any questions about them.

Thanks again and we hope to hear from you yet this winter about the 2020 season. Don't forget that this Sunday is our last pizza night on the farm. So if you were trying to get to one this season, this is your last chance. We will be firing it back up in May next year so cross your fingers for good weather on Sundays again next year because we got really lucky this year. 

Have a great weekend, winter(if you're done this week) and here is the newsletter link.

Good morning and welcome to week 18 of your CSA. We have some delicious red potatoes this week along with more squash that can be stored for quite a while in a dark and dry place. Enjoy this nice weather before the cold snap.

Here is this week's Newsletter.

Have a great weekend!

Good rainy morning. Maybe it is done dripping for a while. We hope you enjoy your bounty this week. Get the grill going, roast some peppers, make some pepper jam, red pepper sauce for pasta, experiment a little. Stuff some peppers with last nights leftovers. All you have left is spaghetti? Perfect! Stuff it in there, cover it with cheese, some heavy cream, bake it and dive right in.

Have a great weekend. Here is this week's Newsletter link.
