2017 CSA Enrollment Open

It may be winter but goodness is growing at Granite Springs! We’re busy planning all the delicious food we’ll grow for your CSA shares this year. There are exciting additions both small and large-like strawberries are back! We’ve planted four varieties for 2017. We’re building another large (30 x 95 feet) high tunnel to increase our winter vegetable production. We’re having monthly opportunities to visit the farm for tours, workdays and potlucks. We listened when many of you told us you miss your CSA veggies when we aren’t in session, so we’re expanding the season by adding 6 weeks to the schedule. We also decided to increase our share sizes giving you one or two more items per week than in previous years. We’ve always been careful about how and when we grow and we believe these changes will help us subsidize more shares for lower income members and pay ourselves a living wage. This year there’s a sizable discount offered for whole season advance payment of Regular Shares. All the information you need to enroll can be found on our CSA page. Deadline for reserving your spot is February 15th. Don’t delay, enroll today!

CSA Enrollment Time Again!

I know we’ve been busy when I finally sit down at the computer and go to our blog on the website and realize I haven’t been here in almost 4 months! We do manage to get out farm updates from time to time on social media–Facebook, and very occasionally on Twitter (@GSFPBO) and Instagram. Make sure you’ve subscribed to those. But there never seems to be time to sit and write about the farm, which I would love to do. Rather than kick myself around about that, I think I’ll just add it to our “off-season” (Ha!) list of to-dos…

For now we need to send out a reminder that it’s time to enroll in our Fall Session of the CSA which will begin the last week of September/first week of October. We have a few spots open for new folks, and we need our returning folks to claim their spots in the flock. This helps us with planning and ensures all who want to be fed from our farm will be fed! There are so many delicious things in store for the Fall session. Please join us! Details here.
