2016 CSA Membership Form

 Winter Farmers Market in Corning

Two dairy goat does. One is approximately 3 years old and is purebred Saanen. She is somewhat skittish but should be a good milker. The other is a 5-6 month old doeling with Saanen mother and Oberhasli father. Both good dairy lines. Her mother regularly gives us 3/4 gallon/day of milk.
Can be sold bred if preferred. Dairy goats make a great hobby and are great at grazing brushy areas. $250

hey all!  so you'll find that this week at market we have winter CSA forms with us, you can fill one out there, take one home a mail it back, or send it next week, or even print the one below and bring it with you.  the fall and winter CSA will be like last year.  you pay any amount you determine, we will give ten percent more free.  So if you pay $100, you will get to spend $110 worth.  just show up and shop, we keep track and record it for you.  Add more money at anytime!

its been a busy week in our personal lives, and its good that it has arrived at such a transitional time in the vegetable growing season.  You'll still see a few summer crops, like tomatoes, eggplants, and cherry tomatoes, but you will definitely notice that last week and this week have started to tilt toward the winter crops.  Right now the roots are especially gorgeous as they all still have their edible tops on them!  in a few weeks watermelon radishes will just be baseball sized balls rolling around, but right now, find them with lovely leafy edible greens on top!

Tasks at this time of year include planting garlic, making sure winter greens are cultivated one last time before they go into the low light/cold weather season, soon we will put the plastic on the newest hoophouse (its planted with greens, but not yet covered), and before the nights get very cold, we will pull all the storage radishes, turnips, celeriac, potatoes, rutabagas, carrots, and beets, and wash them and bag them for display and sale over the winter months.

hope you got a chance to see the lovely autumn colors today!  they were resplendent here in Hector today, and in the sugar hill state forest where we had a nice hike!
happy eating!  liz and matthew

Just a reminder, the CSA runs through the end of October. For those interested in participating in the Fall/Winter CSA, based on feedback we have decided to organize it like we did last year with members paying up front whatever amount they choose. We need to figure out the details a little more. If we can figure the details out this week I may post to this newsletter later in the week. Or you can discuss it with us at market when you pick up your share. Sorry for the delay. The end of summer/beginning of fall kind of snuck up on us.
