CSA: Paused for 2023
This year after much hard deliberation we’ve decided to take
2023 off from offering the CSA format due to several factors with a major one
being that I (Malinda) am having surgery on both wrists to correct carpal
tunnel that I’ve admittedly let go way too long before addressing. I’ve lost a
lot of use of my hands and putting the repairs off until fall/winter is not an
option. Having to heal through spring will be a tough one for me as it’s my
favorite time of year to be outside with my hands in the soil. While I’m
definitely not looking forward to being limited for a few months, it’s exciting
to think what having functionality restored will open back up to me!
A CSA format is challenging to manage because it’s a ton of planning behind the scenes and needs a tight schedule to ensure we’ll have a sufficient and diverse harvest available each week to keep the shares interesting and of a high quality. With my temporary limitations and the family having to take care of me and the things I usually do, we need to take some pressure off ourselves.
While we’re pausing the CSA program for one year, we WILL still be growing and have things to offer. I plan to be doing a lot of canning later in the summer so the gardens will definitely still be planted, just on a looser schedule. As things come ripe, I’ll be updating our website and emails with ‘a la carte’ style options of what’s available and we’d love to put together custom options. It is entirely possible that later in the season we’ll have enough to offer a partial season CSA for a few folks but I just don’t want to make promises and take deposits on something like that with our spring being in question while I heal. We also will have chickens and turkeys available but we’re paring them down to more pre-order system so if you’d like us to supply you with a few let’s chat about how many and when you’d like them and I’ll happily work them into our schedule.
Growing is in our blood and we love what we do; we plan to be BACK next year with our regular program with all the bells and whistles so please keep us in mind as your source of local farm goodness. We’ll miss the routines of the program this summer but we’re also looking forward to a little extra family time before our twins start preschool this fall.
To give a sense of what our program usually looks like, I’m leaving 2022’s information below.
We look forward to resuming the program in 2024.
