Fall Harvest Share Information and Dates

Posted 10/10/2012 9:06am by Minnesota Food Association.
Hi folks,

I just wanted to let you all know that the fall veggie shares are about two weeks away and they are looking good!  Most of you are members from our summer share but I believe there are a few new folks as well.  If you are new Welcome to the Farm!  We have all of our potaoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, and onions in the cooler.  The greenhouse has our black beans and wintersquash safely squirreled away. The hoophouse is full of a bed of salad mix, 2 beds of lettuce, some arugula, and lots of spinach.  Still left in the field is a fair amount of broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, and some herbs.  The hoophouse and field crops all look great.  Now it just needs to stay cold enough to keep them happy but not so cold that they freeze to death.  These late boxes are by far some of my favorite eating adventures of the year. 

DELIVERIES WILL START:

1st delivery - Tuesday October 23rd

2nd delivery - Tuesday November 6th

3rd delivery - Tuesday November 20th (The week of Thanksgiving)


We have it set up that pick-ups will be available at The Butter Bakery Cafe in south Minneapolis and out here at the Farm in Marine on St. Croix (See site descriptions below).  I assume that everyone who signed up for the fall share already understands this.  If you have any questions or concerns about this please let me know.  Also, If you have not picked up at the farm or at Butter Bakery during the season please let me know which site you would prefer to pick up at.   

I will give you another heads up a few days before deliveries start.  Until then please feel free to contact me with any questions you have. 

Thanks,


Aaron
