This legislation is being sponsored by the SELC and Matt Gato, an assemblyman. It would enable all of you who have contacted me about selling jams and jellies and homemade breads to do it without the expense of a certified kitchen!!! From your own homes!! My aspiring pastry chef Meghan could sell her wonderful Brownie Biscotti and I could add "value-added" products from the farm to support us during the lean months!! This would be an answer to a pray, but would require huge amounts of support!!! Please forward this to anyone and everyone and contact your local assemblyman asking for his support!!

I went to Ash Wednesday mass, and I realized that easter is just around the corner (plus mike can’t stop talking about his big international las vegas karate tournament coming up, it is the day before easter…he loves it and has been training hard for it!!) I called nancee siebert and we discussed the need for small lamb csa shares. This is one live lamb to be split between customers. Just let me know if you are interested. In the meantime mike has to listen to me all night about my exciting plans for the farm including sweet potatoes!!! (which includes begging for a new raised bed to be built by my “studly” husband…yes groveling and flattery is required!!). First time in bulk…wish me luck. This year’s focus….food for the masses…carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lettuce, green beans!! I can’t wait!!

Moonstruck Farms CSA would like to welcome the Siebert Lamb Farm to our multi-farm CSA. The Sieberts have been in the lamb business for over 30 years, and raise Heritage Southdown and Hampshire/Suffolk crosses. They are grass and grain fed, but only say the word and they will put one aside for grass fed only if that is what you prefer. There is lamb available now so just drop an email if you would like more information. Beef sides are almost sold out; I have one "grass fed" only side left for the season. Sorry this will be it for the year; have to start out slow and five head are plenty for us to start with!! We have one pork side left that will be sent to butcher in late May, and then we will take a break for a few months with pork available again in the late Fall. We are taking a few months off so we can keep ourselves busy stocking up on chicken and turkey for the summer and early Fall. Just a note to keep you updated; now that meat is taken care of time to go plant the new greenhouse with the beginning of the summer crops!!
