April showers bring May...vegetables! Our focus has shifted from greenhouse work to field work this past month. Most of our greenhouse seedlings (lettuces, kales, broccoli) are now happily growing out in the fields, and Farmer Matt and Orlando have been seeding our direct-seeded crops like carrots, spinach, lettuce mix and cilantro in the fields. We will continue to prep our fields and fill them up with crops over the coming weeks. It's beautiful watching the farm come to life!
SEE US IN ACTION!

FIRST WEEK OF CSA
Mark your calendars! Our CSA Program begins the week of May 23rd. We will be in touch again in a few weeks reminding you where and when to pick-up your share. Please remember that your pick-up day of the week will depend on your chosen pick-up site.
Your membership in our CSA means that you are an essential (and much-loved!) part of our farm community! We encourage all members to come visit the farm to meet us, your farmers, and learn about how we grow your food. We are located in Riverhead, which is on the North Fork of Long Island. We're close to lots of vineyards and gorgeous beaches. Make a day of it! Tours are FREE for members and their guests. Reservations are not required. Our Farm Shop will be open Fridays & Saturdays during the month of June.
CSA Farm Tours - 2:00-3:00pm - Saturdays in June - 6/4, 6/11, 6/18, 6/25
Kids' Farm Tours - 11:00am-11:45am - Saturday, 6/11 and 6/25
Farmer Galen, age 6, will lead this special tour specifically for kids. (Parents welcome, of course!)
We're looking forward to our first harvest in just 4 short weeks! Grow plants, grow!
