Dear CSA Member,

Our 2009 Organic Certification inspection was conducted last night.  Each year our certifying agency, NOFA NY Certified Organic, LLC sends an inspector to the farm.  They examine our records, receipts, seed, fertilizer, amendment  purchases, inspect the greenhouses, fields and equipment and interview us personally about our practices. There are specific criteria that a farm needs to meet to be Certified Organic and it is a process that we need to work at, record and adhere to every day.   We will proudly be Certified Organic another year as we met all of the organic standards and criteria.  It is not an easy or uncomplicated task to meet the certification requirements. Each year as more materials, seed sources and information become available for the organic farmer, we feel that we can do a better job farming organically.

The Vegetable Share has an Italian flair this week: Escarole, Radicchio, Fennel, and Eggplant.  The Summer Spinach and Lettuces are still producing beautifully with all of the cool temperatures and rain.  All Certified Organic and  grown for you.

Enjoy the Vegetables -Deborah for everyone at Stoneledge Farm
