9/11 Update
Hello everyone.  The farm trip is on for tomorrow.  Weatherman is calling for overcast skies for tomorrow but no rain.    I have heard it is raining in the city, but right now it is dry here.

We are getting all set up now for the farm visit and are looking forward to seeing everyone.  We will eat around 12 and have a walk around the fields 11:30 or so and again after eating.  Please bring your place setting and a dish to share.  We will have the pork and corn on the cob on the roaster.

The tractors are hooked up to the potato digger and carrot digger.  The other tractor has the hay wagon hooked for rides around the fields. Walt and Bernadette from the River Garden, Jim from Capital City Roasters, Jim Hyland from Winter Sun Farms, Dave Cammer from Bear Creek Maple will have flowers, coffee, winter share info and maple and honey on display.  All will also be available for members to purchase and take home as well.

Looking forward to the day.  Deb

Farm Visit

The Farm Visit is scheduled for September 12 from 11 – 3.   This will be the only remaining chance to come see the farm and meet the farmers during the 2009 season.

Directions
Take NYS Thruway to Exit 21, Catskill. After the tollbooth, go a short distance and make a right hand turn onto Rt. 23 B. Follow Rt. 23 B for about 3-4 miles until you come to the intersection of Rt. 23 B and County Route 67. Make a right and go over the bridge. Make your first right onto Garcia Lane ( about 1/4 mile) and follow Garcia Lane all the way to the end-keep going on the dirt road to the two gray barns. You’re there!

Arranging Transportation
Do you have a car and want passengers to help share expenses (or just want some company)?  Do you really want to see the farm but need a ride?  Would you rent a car if you could count on other members to chip in for the rental and gas?  Please add comments to this posting if you are looking for transportation or if you have a car and can take passengers.  In past years members have rented vehicles and shared expenses to travel up to the farm.

A note about adding comments.  The first time you add a comment it needs to be approved before it is actually posted.  This stops the website from devolving into a forum for ads and other automatically generated spam.  Once your comments are approved you will be able to make subsequent postings without needing further approvals.

Message from the Farm
Here is what Deb wrote in her Week 12 newsletter:

We continue to make plans for the Farm Visit, September 12 from 11-3.  I hope you will be able to make the trip to visit for the day.  Please bring a dish to share, your own place setting and take some time just to enjoy being at the farm, meeting other CSA members, and meeting all the people that grow your food.  The roaster will be stated early in the morning and we will have pork and sweet corn.  We re planning on digging some potatoes and carrots for members to pick up,  Walks around the fields to see how your vegetables are being raised and tractor rides on the wagon are planned.

Each year we invite other farmers that are involved with the CS or are local to participate as well.  This year Jim Hyland of Winter Sun Farms, Bernadette and Walt of The River Garden, Dave Cammer of Bearkill Maple products will be attending.
