Feb 28: National CSA Sign-Up Day
Hello farm friends!
On February 28th, we are joining with CSA farmers from across the country to celebrate National CSA Sign-up Day. This is an important time of year for us to get new members signed up because we are in the process of making the investments that will result in a successful harvest many months from now.
The CSA model is an important model to support our farm. Farmer Laura, who runs First Root Farm in Concord, Mass. put it eloquently: “The CSA model was what allowed me to start my own farm business at age 23. Without the sale of CSA shares, I would not have been able to buy seeds, potting soil, fertilizer, or anything else. Six years later, my business is still going strong. Access to capital in the off-season; the meaningful connections between farmers and CSA members; the sense of ownership and pride members feel about their CSA farms–all these things add up to healthy farms, businesses, and communities. The CSA model is good for everybody.”
So thank you for your support now and throughout the year. It is so important for us and we are thankful to you!
To celebrate National CSA Sign-up Day, we are offering a $25 discount on new members who sign up on February 28th, pretty much a free box. Send us an e-mail reservation this Saturday and we’ll give you the discount.
