Use this posting as a bulletin board if you are looking to split a share with someone at the Yorkville CSA.  The best way to split shares is to alternate weeks.

Dear CSA Member

What a season we have all endured.  The farm has been sustained with the support and commitment of the CSA members and we can not express completely our sincere gratitude.  As farmers we know the power of nature and respect both the devastation and also the blessings that are part of working within the natural world.

Seed catalogs arrive every day and we are placing orders for supplies needed for the spring.  The fields are covered with a Winter Rye cover crop.  The garlic is planted and waiting for the spring.

As we look forward to the upcoming season we are filled with a sense of gratitude and commitment to our CSA members and renewed understanding of what it means to be a CSA farm.

With heartfelt thanks.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Deborah, Pete, Peter Jr. and Arliss

- 1 bag Bosc Pears and Winesap Apples

- 1 jug Cider-locally grown and produced. UV’d, refrigerate when you get home.  If you are not going to use the Cider right away, freeze for later use.
- 1 jar Stoneledge Farm Pear Sauce. 100% local Fruit, no sugar added.  Peter felt that the Stoneledge Farm Pear Sauce would be a perfect addition to the last Fruit Share and just in time for Thanksgiving.  Enjoy.

Dear CSA Member

Our online CSA 2012 Registration is now open.  This is a new system and so everyone will need to register the first time as a new member.  If you would like to order from the CSA Market Place you can order from the online store by registering there as well.  You do not need to order a 2012 CSA share to order from the Market Place.

Three new products are now available on the Market Place:  Apple Butter, Pear Butter and Raspberry Jam.  They are all delicious. The Apple and Pear butters are made from local fruit.  The Raspberry Jam-no seeds-is made from our own Certified Organic Raspberries.  The holidays are right around the corner and many members have found honey, maple syrup, coffee and now, preserves, pickles, sauce and salsa make great gifts.  Please order soon because there are only two deliveries remaining.  The last delivery will be on November 21,22 and 23.

If you have any questions about registration or ordering from the CSA Market Place just send us an e-mail and we will be back in touch.

Fruit Share delivery this upcoming week November 7, 8,9 depending on your delivery day.  The fruit is just beautiful.  This week the first Fuji Apples, Cameo Apples, and Golden Delicious Apples and Bosc Pears.  We are also sending a 1/2 gallon jug of award winning Eco-Apple, fresh, no preservatives added Apple Cider.  It is freshly pressed and by NYS law, UV’d.  It has a bright fresh taste and will need to be refrigerated when you take it home. If you are not going to use it right away, it will freeze “beautifully” says Elizabeth Ryan, the orchardist and cider maker.

We thought we would give cider a try.  Let us know what you think.

Such beautiful fall weather and no snow for this week.

1 bag of Golden Delicious and Fuji Apples
1 bag of Bosc Pears and Cameo Apples
1 jug Cider

Fuji Apples are my favorite late fall apple.  Crisp, juicy. Great for eating and cooking. If you have apples that you want to store away, Fuji will keep in the refrigerator until spring.  They almost seem to get sweeter as they store.

Cameo is an attractive eating apple.  Sweet, juicy with a beautiful color.
