Winter delivery season has come to a close

Posted 1/14/2017 9:41am by Nate & Emily Parks.

We made it! Your Farmers made it!

This week will be the last of our winter deliveries. Not to worry, however! We will resume weekly deliveries the first week of May.

Winter greens and veggies have become a mainstay in recent years. With the added protection of unheated greenhouses and large walk in coolers to store root crops our potential for feeding ourselves through the winter has never been brighter. 

Still, there are barriers and boundaries that must be considered. This year we pushed our greens production to the absolute max, when we are done picking next week there will be next to nothing left in the houses but stems! Remember that these crops are not really growing past the middle of December when our light and sun hours drop below 10 hours a day. What that means is that we are really just harvesting what we grew 2-3 months ago and at some point you have harvested all the crop available. 

Thanks again for a great year of support and great food. We are truly excited for 2017. With renewed focus of only CSA and restaurant delivery, we feel like our direction, our production plans, and our infrastructure are in a really good spot for great success. We will be rolling out a pretty awesome marketing plan for our CSA program beginning in February. A shout out goes to one of our incredible CSA members, Despi Ross, who has really knocked it out of the park for us over the last couple of months putting together a marketing campaign that Emily and I could have never pulled off. We feel poised to take our food and our membership to a new level and really make an impact on the health of our community!
