Become a Willowtree CSA Member
Dear Willowtree Farm Friends
We hope that you have all enjoyed this winter. It was so great to have so much snow. But we are happy to see the snow go, as we are looking forward to the spring and getting into the fields. Here on the farm we just finished lambing and have had about 175 lambs born. It is such a fun and busy time with so many baby lambs running around. They love to run around outside and play. We are also tapping our maple bush and getting lots of sap, which we are busy boiling down into maple syrup.
With spring just ahead of us we have started to plant our seedlings in the greenhouse and have begun planning our crops for the upcoming season. Then soon enough we will be picking asparagus, and fiddleheads. We are also growing a few new crops this year. We are growing potatoes, sweet potatoes, kale, Swiss chard and beets for the first time.
As spring is quickly approaching we would like to invite you to our CSA program. As a member of our CSA program you would receive a weekly basket full of our fresh fruits and veggies. As a member of the CSA program you also get to come to tour the farm and see how we grow your food and get to know us. CSA shares are a great way to eat through the season, as your share will change as the fruits and veggies come in and out of season. It is a great way for you family to get involved in how your food is grown and get to know where it comes from.
If you are interested I have attached the application form for this year to the email or it can be downloaded from our website. Check out our website we have posted sample weeks of what could be expected in the shares and we posted new photos in the gallery. If you have any questions or please feel free to contact us.
Have a great spring,
