Shifting Seasons, Preparing for Winter

As we approach the final weeks of our Summer CSA Share season, we slow slightly as we move into the time of preparation for winter. We will be delivering 3 bi-weekly Fall Storage Shares starting October 24th. We have a few remaining shares available. Be sure to sign up if you are interested in local, fresh vegetables in the coming weeks.

We are enjoying our Saturdays at the St. Croix Falls Farmers Market. We’ll be there through the end of October. The community in SCF has been welcoming and wondeful. We would love for you to join us in the coming weeks before we take to hibernation.

Each week we see a slight change in what we can bring to market. With  the recent frost, we lost the beans and peppers. Luckily, the chilly temperatures result in the plants pushing sugars into their leaves. Lettuces, kale, collards, broccoli, carrots, and brussels sprouts have a whole new level of natural sweet going on.

A big thank you to all of you who threw your support behind us in our inaugural year. What an incredible first growing season for us! We are looking forward to many more as we continue to build community and find ways to do our small part in the local food movement.
