Don’t forget to bring your bags (at least one big bag, and I recommend a couple of smaller ones, too).
There are no more shares available for the 2012 season.
While there are no more egg shares available for the 2012 season, we still have fruit and flower shares available. Not to mention Veggie Shares. But the deadline is quickly approaching — sign up now!
We are very happy to offer the opportunity to order once a month from the Lewis Waite Farm again this year. The 250 acre Lewis Waite Farm raises 100% grass-fed beef and all natural, pastured pork. In addition, they contract over twenty other upstate and regional farms to deliver hundreds of sustainably raised and produced products packaged especially for you. All of our meat animals are anti-biotic and hormone free, and most are pasture raised. Every farm has humane handling practices, and treats the land with respect.
Some available products are: handmade organic bread, raw-milk cheeses, honey, jams, granola, chicken, duck, eggs, organic beans and grains, and all kinds of sustainably raised local meats. Members can visit www.csalewiswaitefarm.com to get a better sense of what Lewis Waite is all about. As the first Lewis Waite delivery nears, the extra shares coordinator will provide you with login information and instructions on how to order. Your order and payment is directly with the farms. West Harlem CSA just serves as the convenient pickup location.
Feel free to contact the farm directly if you would like more information! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Registration for the 2012 season is open to all. Get ‘em while they last!
More info and membership agreement form available here.
Our 2012 season will start deliveries on June 12th.
Last year’s members should have already received an email with this year’s application. To secure your participation in the season, you will need to return the forms by March 19th with either the full payment or a deposit of at least 10%. Please note that this year, our deadline for full payment due is April 27th.
We will open membership to the waiting list and others on March 20th. Please remember that we have a limited amount of shares to go round, so if you want a share for the 2012 season, do not tarry.
Also, please be sure to include on the application the name and email address and/or phone number of everyone who will be sharing the share and fulfilling the required volunteer hours.
We look forward to seeing you this season!
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!
