2019 Week 24, Summer CSA 2 of 26
Once upon a time, I thought to name this ‘Left Field’ Farm, because the best things come out of left field. But a few farms already had that name, and so I went with Atelier, though perhaps the gist is true; this week is proving it. The best things come out of left field. So a long, curious-glancing bow to that.
What a wonderful time it was to meet you all last week. I am so very excited for this summer, and to share it with you. If you like what we have here, tell your friends! :) We’re a young farm, and in need of sales. The CSA, Farm Bucks, and Farmstand are all options, though the CSA is what truly supports us.
A field-note-free update this week because we have so many other kinds of news!
Cooking Classes: If you did not hear last week, new this year are farm focused, vegan cooking classes with Cecelia. The classes are a cozy 4-6 people, and feature the week’s harvest prepared in a variety of ways. Learn all the culinary uses and ways to incorporate the farm into your meals, including vegetable substitutions. There will be 10 class-weeks spread over the summer and early fall, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 6pm, at the farm. At the end, we’ll collect all of the year’s recipes into a farm yearbook and cookbook. Sweet!
Prices: $20 for a single class, $15 per class for 4 classes or more, or $12 per class for all 10. The first classes are right around the corner, Wednesday 6/19 and Thursday 6/20. Email email@example.com to sign-up and for additional information, or tell us in person at the CSA pick-up.
Bread: Andrew at Althea Bread will be taking a medical leave for a few months this summer. We wish him all the best in healing and health. June will be the last month for weekly loaves, but he will be back in a couple months to start again. Thank you all for your enthusiasm and understanding.
Honey: Our beekeeper Adam at Sublime Bees harvested several hundred pounds of honey this spring, and said the bees looked better than ever. The rest of their summer honey yield stays for them, but I did buy 50 jars before they were all gone. I will have them for sale at the farm, $10/jar.
Ferments: I dropped a very good quantity of kohlrabi and dill off for Katherine at Gathered Threads. In a few weeks we will have some Kohl Dill ferment for sale on the farm. I’m sooo excited! $10/jar.
Pickle Pile: As we are about 1/3rd sold, we have mucho excess on the farm right now. I will have last week’s extra greens — 100+ lbs — and beans out this week. Free to year-round members to put by for the winter; for sale to summer folk.
See you on the farm,
