Notes on the Share

This is our final week of CSA for the 2012 season.  If you want to make this week's share last you into the holiday season, you're in luck!  They can all be stored well under the correct conditions.  The Beets, Cabbage and Carrots can be stored in the fridge in a plastic bag for about a month.  The Potatoes can be stored in a cool, dark place (not in the fridge) and the Sweet Potatoes should be kept in a cool (not cold) dark place.  

News From the Farm

We've come to the end of another growing season here on the East End of Long Island.  Overall, it was good season for us.  The warm, dry summer was just what our crops needed, and we lost very little to disease (like in past rainy years).  We want to thank you for your membership this season and we hope you will join us again in 2013.  We will be sending out a notice as soon as our renewal application is available on our website in the next few weeks.  Have a very happy and healthy Holiday Season! - Maggie, Matt, James & Galen

Winter CSA Shares STILL AVAILABLE! - We have winter share pick-ups in Jamesport and Port Washington.  Click here to sign up!
