The Market Is Open!
Good morning everyone,
Fountain Springs are back on the market again this week, I know many of you will be happy to hear.
Check out what Erdmann Farms has; peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, okra.
Unfortunately KIC Produce will be off the market again this week.
We are currently looking for another produce grower, so hang in there, the market will have more veg soon. Rocky Glade Farm will be selling with us through the fall and winter also.
Sadly, this past Thursday we ended up cancelling the market. We had so few orders and the orders we did have, some of the growers had trouble filling and ended up with 2 items on order. We want to continue this market through the winter and not give up but we need more growers and more customers and so sincerely appreciate those who have continued to support us each and every week. The market cannot grow without active support so please order if you haven’t, spread the word to those seeking what this market offers and help give Bedford County a boost forward in supporting local and going green. Thank you!
From Rocky Glade Farm
“Rocky Glade Farm Winter CSA Information Sheet
Rocky Glade Farm is happy to offer a Winter CSA for the 10th year in a row! CSA is short for Community Supported Agriculture, also known as subscription farming. As a part of our Winter CSA you will be subscribing for pickup of fresh veggies every other week for 15 weeks, beginning in October and ending in May. (Please note: you are paying for 15 boxes of produce, you will see 16 weeks listed below, we will cancel one of those pickups during the winter growing season due to weather or holidays)
So what do we grow? We try to balance our growing between greens and root crops. Within each category we will probably grow several different varieties, butterhead lettuce, crisp lettuces, romaine lettuces, several types of radishes, dinosaur kale, red Russian kale etc. What follows is a list of main crops you can expect to find in your box over the course of the CSA: Several heads of Lettuce, Radishes, Onions, Beets, Swiss Chard, Kale, Herbs, Parsley, Cilantro, Broccoli/Kale crosses such as Happy Rich, Carrots, Asian Greens, Brussel Sprouts, Sweet Turnips and Turnip Greens, Collard Greens, Cabbages, Spinach, Lettuce mix. In addition, you may start and end your box with other seasonal vegetables such as winter squash, and sweet potatoes and wind up the season with spring crops like broccoli and strawberries, no promises on those items as they totally depend on weather and supply, but we try to do what we can to make sure you have a good variety of veggies throughout the winter months.
Our pricing for 2015-2016 stays the same as last season. Pricing will be $30.00 per pickup which translates into $450.00 for the entire 7 month harvest season. There are two ways to pay: 1) pay in full at the beginning of the season $450.00 (September 15) or 2) two payments of $225.00 (Due dates September 15, February 1)
A deposit of $225.00 is required by September 15th to reserve your spot in the Winter CSA.
