Thank you. We hope you enjoyed your year with us.

It has been our pleasure feeding you and your families this 2013 season. We made it through a lingering winter, weeks of cabbage and eggplant, and months of beautiful heirloom tomatoes together. We want to thank you for being a part of our family with our annual CSA Harvest Dinner, Sunday January 19th. Please mark this date on your calendars and plan to join us. Do not fear the wintry weather! Our new barn dining room should be complete and we will have heaters and a bonfire to boot. Expect a formal invitation with more details soon.  

Please help us in 2014 with your feedback?

We have put together a very short list of just three questions to learn how we can improve our CSA program next year. Your responses will be completely anonymous, so we ask that you spare no comment, good or bad! All knowledge can be used for positive change. Click the link below and donate 5 minutes...at most.

We love our jobs and could not do them without you. Thank you for providing us with the security to nurture our fields while filling your dinner tables. We hope you will join us next year. Shares are available now with discounts for returning members and shares bought as holiday gifts. Find the details on our updated website. 


Keep in touch!
