Windflower Farm’s winter share consists of a collection of organically grown storage vegetables and greens, and apples, pears and cider from neighboring farms, all pre-packaged in a 1-bushel box. Winter share boxes will be delivered on four Saturdays during the winter (11/19/2011, 12/17/2011, 1/21/2012, 2/11/2012). West Harlem CSA Winter distributions will take place at Broadway Presbyterian Church, from 12:00 to 1:00.
Mary and Bob Pratt from Elihu Farm are also offering egg shares to Winter shareholders. If you purchase an egg share, it will be delivered along with your Winter vegetable share.
Have a great Winter and enjoy your Winter Share!
Hi Everyone – Please note that we were recently notified by Ted Blomgren, our farmer at Windflower Farm, that because of all the crazy weather this past month he has been forced to push back his harvesting and our start date one week. So our new start date will be TUESDAY JUNE 14th. This means that our 22 week season will be from June 14th to November 8th 2011. See you all at the first distribution.
On Tuesday, April 20th, 5:30-7:30 pm, there will be a W Harlem CSA Farmer Meet & Greet event where you will have a chance to meet our farmer, Ted Blomgren, and hear about his plans for this coming season. You will also get to meet Core Group members and other CSA members. You will have an opportunity to join if you have not done so already.
The event will be at Broadway Presbyterian at 601 West 114th Street on Broadway in the Gym on the lower level. We hope to see you there!
This year’s farm gathering for all Windflower Farm shareholders will take place during the August 28th-30th weekend. It’s timed to allow us all to attend the Washington County Fair on Sunday before going home
as well as enjoy the best swimming conditions on the Battenkill River (for those who arrive Friday PM or early Saturday).
Ted Blomgren, our farmer, will organize some farm tours at Windflower Farm (vegetables, berries and flowers) and at nearby Elihu Farm (egg share), and Lewis-Waite Farm (meats, etc.) for mid-day Saturday and Sunday morning. We’ll have a potluck meal on Saturday evening, followed by a hay ride to an overlook and a bon fire. Windflower Farm can offer camping at a site that offers running water, nice outhouses, a grill, ice chests, and limited refrigerator space. There are also a number of hotels and bed and breakfasts in the area around Valley Falls, where the farm is located. The farm will host breakfast for everyone on Sunday.
