Hello from the winter wonderland!
We've had some beautiful, I say that loosely, weather here. We had a hore frost that lasted 3 days. There wasn't any direct sunshine to melt it all away. It was simply stunning. The children have been enjoying going sledding and skating. Our neighbors across the road have a pond that they go skating as well as one at our school. The children enjoy winter much more than their mom! But I guess we all need a break.
Check out the new Web site. Mark has added all the meat information so it will be much easier for you to do your ordering. You can still either call us directly or email Jan to place your orders. Also please make a note of the new email address: email@example.com. Jan has always used her personal address and then sort out all the farm stuff. She felt this would be a lot easier. Also if possible, when you send an email, please include a phone number so I can call you back. Thanks.
CSA & WORK SHARES
We are excited to say that all 40 CSA boxes have a home to go to for this season. We have already started a waiting list for the 2011 season. There are 3 people on this. If you have questions regarding the farm, it is easier for us to answer your questions if call me (Jean) directly. Jan simpley refers all emails to me, but is not able to answer many of the detail questions you might have.
WINTER DROP OFFS
We've have been thrilled with the orders we are getting for our products during the winter. Please remember that Bay City needs to have orders in by Thurs. 5pm and Farmington in by Fri. 5pm. Any special orders/ cuts of meat need to in by Wed. evening. We cut pork on Thur. and beef on Fri.
FARM PICKUP MEAT & EGGS
Please be advised that you can order meat, eggs and honey to be picked up at the Farm. Please call me for information.
Don't forget we have eggs, Certified Organic honey, and Rabbit available every drop day. Occassionally we will have chicken. Call for availability or email.
I'm so excited to be getting into the greenhouse again. I'm looking to be in the first week of February to start all the herbs. Last year I think I started a bit to late (March) and they weren't as large as I would of liked by market. Small is OK, they definely won't go into transplant shock, but I'd like to see them a bit bigger. We'll see! All I know is I just can't wait to get my hands in some warm dirt!
Well, I guess it's time to sign off till next month. Hope everyone is enjoying the slower pace of winter. We look forward to seeing everyone through the winter drop offs thru the winter. Take care!
