We respect your endurance because it’s taken us slightly extra time than typical to determine what our farm and CSA program will seem like 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 suggests 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 motive, 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 slightly extra emphasis on a wholesome work-life steadiness. We have missed quite a lot of household time with our two boys and that is time we simply cannot get again. Hopefully that is only a short-term 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 previously. This may allow us to persevering with rising for you whereas preserving our long-time farm workforce 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 are able to attain as lots of your communities as potential. Please observe that we have now switched pick-up days and instances for some places. You’ll be able to preview the 2022 CSA Choose-up websites on our web site now.
We’re deeply grateful to all of you to your assist and love all these years and we look ahead to a bountiful rising season forward!
