There is a Stillness

In the past week there has been a sense of stillness here at the farm.  The apples from the 2300 or so apple trees have all been picked and stored.  Four hundred pounds of aronia berries are all harvested and in the freezer.  The strawberry patch is brown and ugly and the last pumpkin has been detached from the vine.  There is a sense of stillness at the farm.

While the farm is quiet, we are not.  We have decided to go forward and start a CSA for next spring.  What is a CSA?  It stands for Community Shared Agriculture. It is farm fresh fruit and vegetables from our farm to your table.  With a membership you are entitled to basket of "good for you" produce each week for 3-4 months.  We begin our informational meetings on Tuesday, October 25th.  It's a new adventure, and surely something to keep us busy preparing and planning for during the winter months. Check out this link for more information on what a CSA is all about  Then contact us for more information about our own specific CSA.
