The big change that we are making to the CSA this year is dropping to one distribution day each week. We will no longer have CSA distributions on Mondays; only on Fridays. While we know that this may be less convenient for some of our shareholders, we are working to make our operation more effective, and this change will allow us to spend more time farming by consolidating our harvesting and distribution time. Please remember that we offer part time shares if your schedule doesn’t allow you to make it to the farm every week.
The Burgy Farmer’s Market in Williamburg will not continue this year. While it has been a worthwhile market for us, several other vendors felt that they were not able to sell enough at that farmer’s market to justify their time. We were unable to find enough new vendors to make it feel like it was going to be viable, so the decision was made to not continue the market.
We intend to keep more vegetables and other products available in our farmstand on a self-service basis this summer, for those who are unable to get here for Friday CSA pickups or get down to Northampton for Tuesday Market. We are hoping that being able to focus more on production this year will enable us to have more products available at our reduced market times, and make our summer a little less crazy.
