CSA Update


Hello all,

We have updated the CSA deadlines and created a brochure. The brochure can be found here and through our links section on the right. The deadlines are rolling, meaning they are determined by when you join. Please make your deposits at your convenience and the 2 payments thereafter are due 30 days and 60 days after making your deposit. Please see the brochure for details. We hope this encourages anybody who has not joined to join. Please send us your deposits along with a copy of the brochure (or the CSA Sign Up sheet which can be found here and in our links section on the right) with your information. We still have memberships available on a first come, first serve basis.

Patricia’s brother Terry gave us a digital camera a little while ago. I took it out to the greenhouse this past week to take some photos for the blog and got some good ones of the first spring crops. Alas, the camera and our computers are not cooperating to allow us to download the photos but we’ll have some to share next week.

We had a visit from two wonderful representatives of the Western Wake Farmers Market on Friday morning at the greenhouse. We have applied to attend this year and they came out to see a little of what we are doing and learn about the farm. We should be hearing back from Western Wake regarding their decision soon so we’re crossing our fingers!

This coming Tuesday, February 23rd, we plan to have produce pickup at our house, 604 Sasser St., between 4:00 to 7:30 pm. The next NCSU delivery will be Wednesday, February 24th. Remember to have your orders placed by Monday evening.

A few of you occasional have trouble placing orders. Please make sure you receive an automated confirmation email a few minutes after you place your order. If you do not receive this email your order was not placed and we will not receive it. Please try again or email us your order to shields.ben@gmail.com or call Ben @ 919-800-8898. Also, we do not accept online payments, e.g. PayPal. We only accept payment of cash or checks at pickup.

Although we are quickly approaching spring, please be aware adverse and/or cold weather may postpone harvest of your produce. In response to this, we may postpone pickups by a day or two. We will provide primary notice of pickup changes via email (especially for those of you who place orders) as well as via blog and online store. Thank you for being flexible with us!
