Today may be the coldest day of the year but here’s a sure sign of Spring… the 2020 Caldwell CSA membership form is now available!

Early bird pricing is in effect until March 1 so don’t delay!  A full-priced full share this year will be $600 ($580 before 3/1) and a half share will be $300 ($290 before 3/1).  Share checks should be made out to Circle Brook Farm.  A site fee is also due ($20 for full shares, $10 for half shares) to cover the supply costs needed to run the CSA.  Site fees can be paid via Venmo or Paypal to Shana.  Farmer John anticipates the season to run from June 7 to November 15 this year.  For full details and instructions please see the membership form.

From Ginger of Treelicious Farms:

This week we are sending a pint of mixed green gage and empress purple plums along with boxes of Macintosh and gala apples to each site. The pints are already packed for each full share. For the apples, we will ask each member to select for their share from the boxes of apples delivered 2lbs of gala apples and 2lbs of Macintosh – for a total of 4lbs per share. Each location will receive boxes of apples labeled with the variety and sufficient apples to provide each member with the apples and likely some extra to be enjoyed by the members. We are packing this way for this week only due to a family funeral today. We will resume packing individual shares next week. We thank you for your understanding.

This Saturday at the Orchard we are hosting a Harvest Festival at our Farm including vendors picking and live music. We are just starting to pick our Macoun apples. Saturday evening we are hosting a Farm to Table Dinner from 5pm to 8pm. Please join us for a day in the country. The Apple crop is spectacular this year – large apples and deep color.
