WEEK #13
Dear CSA Member
Moving into fall and you will see the difference starting to show in your CSA shares.  There are still summer time vegetables: Tomatoes and Peppers with new fall crops of Kale, Broccoli and Leeks.  Each week the farm moves slowly with the seasons.
September 12 is the annual Fall Farm Festival from 11:30-3.  If you are using GPS please use 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451.  There are also directions on the farm website, “Contact Us” tab.  Use the Physical Address  Come and meet your farmers, walk the fields where your vegetables are grown.  At 12 we will gather for lunch.  The farm will provide pulled pork with rolls and also a vegetarian stew, roast corn, portobello mushrooms, fresh fruit and coffee.  We ask members to bring a dish to share to help round out the lunch offerings and their own place setting.
There will be wagon rides, walks around the farm, pick a bouquet of flowers and help dig carrots to take home.   If you would like to take flowers home, please bring your own scissors and something that will keep the flowers until you get home.  Wet paper towels or newspapers in a plastic bag will usually do the trick.  No pets, please.
