We admire your endurance because it’s taken us a little bit extra time than standard to determine what our farm and CSA program will appear like for the approaching 12 months. One of many farm parcels we have been renting for over a decade was bought on the finish of 2021, which suggests that we’ll now be farming on a bit lower than 1/2 of the land we have had in manufacturing all these years. Typically issues occur for a cause, and this has definitely given us the chance to rethink our plans for the farm and our household. After farming at full throttle for the previous 28 years, we’re able to restructure the farm with a little bit extra emphasis on a wholesome work-life stability. We have missed a whole lot of household time with our two boys and that is time we simply cannot get again. Hopefully that is only a short-term downsizing!
So… We’ll proceed to develop for our great CSA neighborhood, however we will probably be providing fewer shares than we have had previously. It will allow us to persevering with rising for you whereas maintaining our long-time farm crew members employed. We have needed to make the tough determination to shut some pick-up places, however we have tried to maintain the websites unfold out evenly throughout Lengthy Island in order that we will attain as a lot of your communities as potential. Please observe that we have now switched pick-up days and occasions for some places. You may preview the 2022 CSA Choose-up websites on our web site now.
We’re deeply grateful to all of you in your help and love all these years and we sit up for a bountiful rising season forward!
