Today is Distribution Day- Week 21!

Week #21

Just a quick reminder to come and pick up your  share.   This is an  ODD week for egg pick-up.  Please remember to return share liners and egg cartons. We are especially short on the plastic liners, and we really do like to re-use them as many times as possible. If your liners are intact, please be sure to return them to us! We also reuse pint and quart jars (used for honey).

Have questions? Call 717-348-4916 (Deb's Cell) or email csa@villageacresfarm.com

IN THE SHARE THIS WEEK: Kale, Arugula/salad mix, White Tokyo turnip, green peppers, red onions, garlic, fingerlings, green frying tomatoes, and hot peppers


The fall frenzy is starting- each day we are torn between the two main priorities, harvesting the remaining crops in the field and getting the greenhouses cleaned out and seeded into winter greens. The rainy days of the last week have given us some good greenhouse time and we will start seeding and transplanting today.  As soon as the ground dries out a little we hope to start our fall carrot harvest- my all time favorite farm task!  Also on the list for this week harvest butternut squash,cabbage, and celeriac.  After those, the sweet potatoes are next, followed by more beets, turnips, watermelon radishes,  and parsnips.  We also have plantings of broccoli and cauliflower that should be forming heads in the near future (don't worry Medium share folks-we have not forgot your broccoli).  

I have not been sitting at my computer much this summer, but in the next week, hope to set up our website for taking signups for our December Share options, Winter Share (January-April) and thanksgiving Turkey preorders, so please stay tuned!
