Join us on Saturday, September 27 for our Garlic Planting Party from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We will have a BBQ (with our own grass fed beef) at 1:00 pm so bring a side dish or dessert to share. Meet us at the South Farm at 2343 State Route 9H in Kinderhook. Please sign up at your CSA site or contact the farm to let us know you are coming.
Our Garlic Planting Party is our way to participate in Vandana Shiva's Global Alliance for Seed Freedom's Call to Action for Seed, Food, and Earth Democracy. Our voices can join in with farmers and citizens all over the world.
We still have plenty of tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, and green beans along with some of the early fall crops like broccoli, cauliflower, fennel, and napa cabbage. Our onions are now cured and going into storage. This week we will be harvesting winter squash. The hot, sticky weather stills feels like summer but the sun comes up later each morning so fall is on its way. We will enjoy the abundance of summer while we still have it!
There is no beef share this week as originally planned. We had to make a schedule change with the butcher, so now the next beef share will be the week of October 6 & the third share will be the week of November 17. You can find an updated meat share calendar here, or under "CSA Membership" above and click on Meat Shares.
