Hello CSA Members!
I know, I know, the anticipation is killing everyone. We just want you to know we have not been shirking our responsibilities in the communication department. With all this warm weather and sunshine, it has literally taken us until yesterday to figure out if the crops for the first week were going to be ready in time for harvest on Monday. Or, if we waited a week, if they would be too big by next week.
So, the conclusion is that we are starting the CSA this week! I will go over all of the basic information (yep, the dreaded “expectations” talk) in the Monday night CSA newsletter, so for now I just wanted to give you the heads up. The only people who receive this newsletter are those who have their emails entered into their CSA accounts online, or people who have gone to our website and “subscribed” to our blog. If you are partners with someone who is not getting this info, please pass this info along to them so that they can get themselves signed up.
For those of you planning your weekly calendar today, I’ll give you a brief schedule. If you are signed up for:
Whitefish Pickup – Tuesday 5-6:30pm. There is no farmers market this week, so we will park our refrigerator truck on Central Ave. next to Depot Park from 5pm until 6:30pm Tuesday, so you will pickup your share directly from us at the back of the truck.
Glacier Pickup (West Glacier and all points East)- Wednesday 5-7pm. Pickup will be same as last year….through the left most door at the Discovery Center in West Glacier beginning at 5pm. Our driver, Keith, has lots of wholesale deliveries to make on his way there, so he’s usually not able to get there any earlier than that. The CSA Shares will be separated by group and labelled.
Columbia Falls – Thursday 5-7:30pm. The farmer’s market starts this week (that’s hard to believe), so pickup will be standard…at our farmer’s market tent, anytime between 5 and 7:30pm.
On Farm- Friday afternoon between 4pm and 7pm. At the farm. Park in gravel parking lot, follow path into end of brown barn. It will be clearly signed.
Kalispell Farmers Market– Saturday 9am-12:30pm. We will be attending the market this week, so you can pickup your share at our market tent between 9am and 12:30pm
Phewww, I’m feeling tired already 🙂 We’re looking forward to seeing all of you again, or meeting you if you are a new member. Keep an eye out tomorrow night for another post with an update of what’s in the share, recipes, and some news from the farm!
