January News from the Farm
People often ask us what we do in the winter and they're surprised to hear this is still a busy time of year at the farm. Here's a quick look at what we're up to...
We just finished our giant seed order that includes 161 varieties this year! Now we're working on our crop plan spreadsheets to refine our seeding schedules and plan the rotation and succession of crops around the farm this season.
Our Fall/Winter CSA shares finished up strong in the last week of December. We were happy to have our second high tunnel to increase the diversity and quantity of winter greens in the shares this season.
We've been working on analysis of this past season's CSA share value. Members who signed up for the Full Season saved 20% over local retail prices for comparable produce. We're pleased to show that our CSA is truly an economical source for local, organic produce.
We're making progress on our new farm name! We're still refining our designs, but we plan to announce the new name and logo in February.
We're preparing for farmers' market this weekend. Stop by, we'd love to see you!
Norwich Winter Farmers' Market
at Tracy Hall on Saturday between 10-1pm.
We'll have a nice selection of carrots, potatoes, cabbage, spinach, butternut, delicata, and kubocha winter squash, beets, turnips, sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, heirloom dry beans, and don't miss our delicious sauerkraut!
