The 2017 Vegetable Season is Open!!!

Posted 1/12/2017 11:11am by Andy Watson.

Happy New Year!! 

We hope you had a great holiday and hopefully got to take a little break from work and enjoy time with friends and family. We are getting all our seed orders in, cleaning the greenhouse, prepping the hoophouse ground, thinking about the future at Sprouting Acres and hoping you want to be a part of it! 

We never sent out an annual survey for 2016 because we thought we would just ask you a couple questions rather than have you spend time filling out a survey(which can be boring we know). We want to hear from you, good or bad, and we want to know what we can do to be a better farm. We only want to know two things from you. What do you like about Sprouting Acres and what would you like to see us do, either this year or down the road. Things we are planning on doing this year are

1. building a roadside stand on our top driveway at the to help let people know where we are and what we do and to give another point of access to the community.

2. Have at least 1 but hopefully two Dinner on the Farm Nights. These may include a night walk with wine and appetizers, a pizza night, or a kids bike ride event (the farm paths are a blast when on a bike and small :)  

3. Building a weather machine over the farm:) not really but maybe someday.

So, there you go. We have opened up the CSA season online and have added a new discount this year. There is the early bird signup for the next couple of months like last year and we added a returning member signup as well. Save $10 if you were a member last season or even in seasons past and are still in the system.

One more note about signup. We need a payment within 2 weeks of signing up to hold your spot this season.  If you sign up and a 1/3 payment is not made within those two weeks, your membership will be disabled until a payment is made. You can pay online(a fee will be added), or by check in installments.

We are adding some new varieties this year to the mix and hope you will like what we have in store for you. We also have market shares available. Market shares allow you to visit us at the farmers' markets so you can pick out what you want each week or whenever you need more food. This can be on its own or in addition to a weekly or every other week pickup. 

We will send out a winter newsletter by the end of January with some updates and reminders. Please don't hesitate to email or call Andy if you have any questions at all. 

Here is his contact info andy@macwatson.net.   608-469-2319 

We look forward to seeing your name back on our list again this year and for another great season.

Thanks!
