We recognize your persistence because it’s taken us a bit of extra time than ordinary to determine what our farm and CSA program will appear to be for the approaching yr. One of many farm parcels we have been renting for over a decade was offered on the finish of 2021, which implies that we are going to now be farming on a bit lower than 1/2 of the land we have had in manufacturing all these years. Typically issues occur for a purpose, and this has actually given us the chance to rethink our plans for the farm and our household. After farming at full throttle for the previous 28 years, we’re able to restructure the farm with a bit of extra emphasis on a wholesome work-life stability. We have missed numerous household time with our two boys and that is time we simply cannot get again. Hopefully that is only a momentary downsizing!
So… We are going to proceed to develop for our great CSA group, however we will probably be providing fewer shares than we have had prior to now. It will allow us to persevering with rising for you whereas maintaining our long-time farm staff members employed. We have needed to make the tough choice to shut some pick-up places, however we have tried to maintain the websites unfold out evenly throughout Lengthy Island in order that we will attain as lots of your communities as attainable. Please be aware that now we have switched pick-up days and instances for some places. You may preview the 2022 CSA Choose-up websites on our web site now.
We’re deeply grateful to all of you on your assist and love all these years and we stay up for a bountiful rising season forward!
