For some the CSA season has now come to a close. For those of you who opted to take the voluntary hiatus, welcome to the final week of the CSA. Can't remember if you signed up for the hiatus week? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask Susan or Ashley.
I'm pleased to be able to say that we will have a more extensive share this week than we would have been able to provide to all of you way back in the first week of August. At the time it was a bit of a gamble but it paid off. The structure of the CSA may be a little bit different this week. Certain items that had been limited with the intention of making sure everyone had an equal chance at an equal share may have those limits relaxed. Our game plan is and has been to distribute as much food as possible and our hope is that our cooler and all of our storage crops will be completely gone after our very last share room customer this week.
Although there were certainly low times and high times we hope that your farewells to this season are fond ones and we hope to see you back in the spring. Remember to renew your CSA membership online and give us a call or shoot us a message if you have any problems or concerns about renewal. Be sure to check your email for a season wrap up in the coming weeks and to stay abreast of any updates from the CSA. Stop by the farm to see us this winter for some farm programming fun or just stop by to say hi and grab a warm drink at the Farm Store.
As a reminder, we have come up with an alternative to the Appleton Thanksgiving share with the Three River FarmersAlliance share. If you haven’t all ready grabbed a flyer from the desk in the share room, make sure to check it out! You can sign up by filling out the form at the bottom of the flyer then either handing it in to Ashley or by writing “Appleton” on your form and mailing it to the address listed. Don’t forget to include your payment along with your form. Checks can be made out to Three River Farmers Alliance. You can pick up your Thanksgiving share on Monday November 21st between the hours of 1pm and 3pm in the Appleton CSA barn.
Renewals for the 2017 Appleton Farms CSA are now open for current CSA members. Primary shareholders received an email containing a link for signups on Tuesday, October 18th. If your primary shareholder has not received this email please contact Susan, our CSA Coordinator, at appletonfarmsCSA@thetrustees.org or 978.356.5728 ext. 4110.
