Thank you to all who have participated in our mid-season survey. We appreciate your feedback and ideas to make the CSA the best it can be. We are reading your submissions daily and will keep the survey link open and paper copies in the share room for one more week. After next week, we will be addressing some of the most common questions and concerns through the blog and in the share room. Your kind words of understanding during the severe drought and the support for our farm team has been greatly appreciated. Thank you.
While the farm camp was wrapping up its last week, we had the pleasure of being featured on NECN's Making the Grade series. Check out the link to see our farm camp in action: link to watch online! We will miss the farm campers and the life they brought to the farm each day and can't wait to see many of them back on the farm this fall on school trips or at Family Farm Day on September 18th.
Speaking of kids... Do you have some teenagers who need to keep busy before school starts? Send them over to help us stack our winter wood piles! We are also looking for some volunteer landscape gardeners to help keep up the garden beds around the store, Old House, and Dairy Barn neat and tidy. We're also looking for another handyman/property steward and help in the dairy barn. If you're interested in any of these volunteer opportunities or for more information, email the farm at email@example.com
