Notes on the share

For those receiving your delivery on Tuesday, the arugula may have been slightly damaged by Monday's rain and hail. We have some delicious greens in the share this week, including mustard which I LOVE!!!!  Try this week's recipe below.  Just 2 more deliveries after this week and then the season will be over.  It's bittersweet for us every season, although perhaps a little more sweet than bitter because it means we can spend more time with our families. 

Winter Share Sign-up has begun!

We are now accepting applications for our CSA winter share! We are sold out of shares at our Manhasset site, but we still have spaces available for pick-up at the farm farm in Jamesport.  The pick-up takes place every three weeks and you can find all the details here >>Winter CSA Share Info

Renew your Membership for 2011! - RENEW NOW!

We are not expanding our membership for 2011 because we have run out of land to grow on!  This means that demand for CSA shares for 2011 will be high and we want all current members to have the opportunity to reserve their place if they wish to join us again next season. After January 1, 2011 we will open up the membership to new applications and we expect to sell out very quickly.  This year we had over 100 members on a waiting list and many of those were past members, so don't let that be you!!!!  PLEASE RENEW TODAY!!!
