CSA Options for 2018 and other thoughts

Posted 2/22/2018 5:08pm by Jill Rendleman.

This week has been productive, despite the rain and cold we have prepared several plots for growing.  Lots of seeding going on in soil blocks for the Spring/Summer 2018 Season.

 If you are a CSA member from 2016/2017/2018 you might want to come to the Carbondale Community Farmers Market at CCHS Sat Feb 24th and get a free bag of spinach or lettuce or whatever you like.  Simply say......I am a CSA member!   Come earlybecause we may run out!   If you bring a friend that signs up for a CSA ......be sure to let me know by calling me, farmer Jill 6183080217.....you will get a $15 credit towards your CSA membership or extra veggies during 2018.

Traditional weekly CSA's 2018 will have new options to call or text to customize your weekly box.  If in our weekly email you see green zucchini (or something else you don't want more of....) for the week, you can text or email 618-308-0217 and ask for a substitution of other veggies or fruits.  

Its cold and gray and rainy but we have been able to get soil tests, seeding, and some building improvements done in the last two weeks.   We still do cleaning and packing outdoors despite the weather, rain, sleet, heat, or snow.....but we manage around that to insure clean, healthy, and high quality in our veggies.  Maybe this summer we can build a lean to for covered cleaning and packing!  

I can't believe our pink and white potatoes are still so nice from last fall as are the sweet potatoes and beets.  The work done on our coolers in 2017 has had some real benefits to our CSA members.  

Our online store www.allseasons-farm.com/store/buy-vegetables-online  provides CSA members to buy "extras" for large family or other events......but is also open to non members who want to buy what you want, when you want it.   So if CSA is not a good option for you, then the online option provides another option.  Our goal with the CSA is to provide wholesale prices for local certified organic produce, while the customized online ordering allows those who are away often or have specific veggie and fruit requests.....to be have access to our produce.  

Our traditional CSA is the backbone of our farm and we very much appreciate your support over the seasons.  We continue to listen to members and add or change things that need revisions!
