Today is Distribution Day- Week 22!

Posted 10/11/2016 11:00am by Debra Brubaker .
Week #22

Just a quick reminder to come and pick up your  share.   This is an Even week for egg pick-up.  Please remember to return share liners and (paper) 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: green cabbage, chard, salad mix, sweet dumpling squash, celeriac, peppers, tomatoes, and carrots.


We had just a light touch of frost overnight- while it did not harm any of our crops, it does mean that we really need to hustle to go the last of the temperature sensitive crops out of the fields. Luckily there is not much left- some celeriac as well as the last of the eggplant, peppers and tomatoes.  We finished harvest sweet potatoes yesterday, and will have some in your shares as soon as they are cured. 

We are still waiting patiently for our Broccoli and Cauliflower to form heads.  I see little ones coming, but they will still need a week or more.  Luckily cold temperatures help to make these crops even sweeter, so we will wait patiently!


Fall/Winter/Spring CSA signup and Thanksgiving Turkey preorder:  We finally have our website set up to take reservation for winter share options and turkey preorders!  If you plan to sign up for both, visit our one stop sign-up shop.  If you only want to reserved your turkey, you can do so here.  Please don't delay, as both winter shares and turkeys often sell out for us.
