News and blog

Welcome to the blog.
Posted 5/4/2016 10:10pm by Andy Watson.

Hello and welcome to the first week of the 2016 Spring Share. 

The weather is all over the place this week but we are enjoying the cooler working weather. The boxes will be delivered during the lunch hour and early afternoon. If you are unsure where you are picking up, please let us know. You can also check your account at the website. If you need any help please email us early so we can sort it out before delivery. We are trying out our new containers tomorrow instead of waxed boxes. We need you to keep them at the site which means you should bring a bag or box to reload your produce. We have a limited number of the new totes so we need to keep them around for reuse. If you are the first person to pickup, just leave your tote with the lid next to it. The rest can be nested inside each other for space saving. One note on the size of the totes. They are actually larger than the old wax boxes just shaped differently.

 

Since this is the first week and we have a small load, the boxes will more than like be at the sites a little earlier than usual. We usually start around 12 and are done delivering by 3 at the latest for Spring Shares.

Again, please let us know if you have any questions. We want you to get your veggies to your home and into your belly.

I've included the pickup site page from the website for you to double check addresses.

Hello!

It may feel like late winter these last few days but your SPRING SHARE starts next week Thursday. That's right, your box of delicious vegetables will be delivered next week. If you are new to our CSA, please feel free to email or call us with any questions you may have about delivery but I will try to fit it all in this email.

You will get another reminder next Wednesday night that will have our newsletter link in it. The newsletter will have news from the farm, box contents, photos and recipe links. It will also have any special delivery info that you may need. The first of the four week share will be full of hoophouse greens including arugula, salad mix, mustard cooking greens as well as rhubarb and yes, we have asparagus already coming out of the ground. Spinach will make it's way in as well next week. 

Look for the newsletter Wednesday night or Thursday Morning next week. Also, we are moving into a more reusable plastic container for boxes this season. We ask that they not be removed from the pickup sites as we have limited numbers. Try to bring a box or bags to the site each week to unload your produce. We will have grocery bags available at each site if you forget.

Thanks so much for signing up for a Spring Share with us this season. Now let's get the weather to cooperate over the next few weeks.

Again, let us know if you have any questions.

Hello and welcome to week 19 of your CSA with  Sprouting Acres. This is the last box of the season for Odd Box Every Other Week EOW Members.

Thanks again for a great season. Don't forget to return your boxes to your site after the CSA is over. We will use them again. We hope you enjoy your last box of the season. Even week EOW shares and full season shares have one more week to go. 

One more note, we may have a larger box at pickup this week. We are a little short on the short blue boxes this week. The family share boxes will all have names on them but may be in the same sized box as regular and EOW shares. If you have questions send Andy an email.

Hello, 

Don't forget the farm party is today! We found out Hwy 73 is open from the north and the south. Hwy A is closed though right when you get off the interstate. If you do go that way, just follow the signs and take two right turns to get to the farm. The address is 1746 Hwy 73, Cambridge, 53523.

The Packer game doesn't start until after 3:00 so there is plenty of time to do both!

 

We hope to see you there and don't forget to bring a dish to pass.

 

Thanks!
