News from the Farm

We're starting to put the farm to bed now.  Old crops are being turned in, and cover crops are being seeded on any bare land.  We have 4 more weeks of CSA deliveries and there is a still a lot left to harvest, but a month from now the season will be over and there will be nothing left out in the fields.  We're happy for the warm weather and sunshine this week as we finish our work in the fields.  With such a rainy season behind us, it's nice to end on a high note! 

SIGN UP FOR THE WINTER SHARE!

We offer a winter share for pick-up at the farm in Jamesport and in Manhasset ONLY.  To learn more about signing up for either pick-up site, please visit our CSA Winter Share Page!
