We wish each of you a wonderful Easter season, filled with blessings!
Here at the farm we are looking forward to a bounty of delicious food this spring, to nourish both our bodies and our souls. The long winter is behind us now, and the year 2020 is no more thankfully. Spring is here so let’s all make the most of every day!
We sent an email update to your email inbox this week from Doe Run Farms (firstname.lastname@example.org) If you haven’t read it yet, please do. More emails to your inbox will be coming your way as we near the start date of the season. Please add our farm email address to your safe senders list.
Our website home page will have important dates posted on there for you too, so between your Newsletter and our Website you should be able to find the information you need. Feel free to give us a call or for a speedier response, send us an email if you are unable to find the answer to a question.
We want to thank our members that responded to the question about having drive through pick ups at our delivery locations again this season. We very much appreciated your input. If you haven’t responded yet, you can still respond.
Greetings from the farm!
The week of Feb.21-28 we are joining with farmers across the country in celebration of CSA Week.
According to CSA research conducted nationwide, this week is the most popular week of the year to sign up for a CSA farm membership.
To help us fill our CSA membership this season, we could use your help by telling your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers about the CSA at our farm. I’m willing to bet you know other people such as yourself, who place a value on delicious home grown food and believes as you do, in supporting small farms. Should you use Instagram to post, please use the hashtag#CSA Week. Facebook posts are very welcome too.
Farm news. We anticipate beginning the CSA season the second week in May. If we are able to begin earlier, we certainly will.
We will offer some new items in the online store this season and we hope you will give them a try. We also hope to provide you with more support to help you get the most benefit from your CSA share.
Right now we are not real busy here on the farm, but that will soon change. We are getting farm equipment serviced, repairs made in the packing room and cleaning up our storage area. Soon we will be doing a good “going over” of the greenhouse.
During our recent snow I enjoyed listening to a couple of good books on “Audible”, which I enjoyed very much. “Audible” is a wonderful App on your phone, tablet etc – you can do chores and still “read” a book. You can also just sit by the fire and listen, which is a lot more fun.
Drop us an email when time allows and let us know how you are spending your time. Has your daily routine changed over the winter months?
Our wish for you in closing is that you and your family stay healthy!
Good Morning from the farm!
We want to wish everyone a happy New Year, one that’s filled with good health, and many blessings!
