Hello BGF CSA Members,

Due to the incredible, instant summer heat, our crops are not holding back. We will begin one week early - NEXT WEEK! The new start dates will be JUNE 5th for Wednesday pick-ups, and JUNE 6th for Thursday pick-ups. 

We apologize if this causes any inconveniences, but in our TEST email we stated our farmer will survive...and so he did.  Again, we ask if you would be so kind to please reply back (just click "reply" and "send" - no messages), so we know you received this important change.

Thank you! And we'll see you next week.

Hello Blue Goose Farm CSA Members,

Thank you, again, for joining our 2013 CSA Season
. It is our hope that you, your family, and friends will enjoy the produce we have to offer.  This letter provides confirmations and expectations – there are over 200 families to coordinate and feed, and only one farmer…we appreciate your cooperation.

We were off to a great start to our planting season. The greenhouse was filled and lush. Everything seemed to be transplanting to the fields nicely. Then Mother Nature stepped in. She has certainly tested us with her extreme weather lately - warm, sunny days – nighttime frost - intense, windy rains – nighttime freeze…and then repeat. But times like these test a farmer’s ability to survive. And that he will do!

The season will begin as scheduled - the week of June 10th.  And the pick-up process will be the same as previous years - go to your designated location on the same day each week during the specified times. At each pick-up site, there is a clipboard holding a sheet of paper listing each member at the site. We ask that you take one box and check off your name from the clipboard list. This will help us identify who has missed a pick-up. The boxes are NOT personalized. All boxes are the same in share size and content. And if someone is picking up a box for you, be sure to inform him/her of this procedure.

As we only have a limited supply of boxes, we ask that you bring totes or grocery bags in which to place boxed items. Remember to bring them with you each week! We ask that you NOT take boxes- this is our way to help curb cost and to be mindful of our earth.

Also, each week you will receive an e-newsletter. This weekly feature includes a list of items to expect in your box that week, a recipe or two highlighting particular items in that box, news from the farm, and any reminders along the way.

We will send out pick-up reminders before the start week. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. We appreciate your cooperation.

Enjoy your week,

Scott & Chrissy Farabaugh

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

What a year! Thank you for taking the food journey with us. Because we've been so consumed with tending to the fields, we've neglected those members who so wonderfully referred our program and locked in new members for us. We have not forgotten you. The referral reimbursement checks will be in the mail soon...promise! We hope to see you all again next year!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

The crisp, clear morning air that makes you feel alive. The damp, brisk nights that let you sleep so well. And the downward spiral dance of the leaves. September has much to offer us. Take time to enjoy it. Beyond all this, September also brings potatoes! The new potato is beyond compare. The delicate skin of white and red potatoes is beautiful and adds much to any plate. Enjoy them...you'll be seeing them until the end of the season!

Dear BGF CSA Members,

 

Whew! We've made it to September with a great crop thus far. We are very pleased with how our garden has produced (excuse the pun!) this year.  We hope you, too, are pleased and enjoying the goods. Get ready for a nice transition from summer to fall foods these next weeks.
