Rocking A Sustainable Farm

This year at Rocking A Sustainable Farm
[ Member listing ]

Planting Season is almost here!

   The 2012 planting season is upon us! We are planning to offer 25 CSA memberships this summer for Washington and Baldwin County residents. I am pleased that my teenage son is willing to be my partner this year, as doing this alone caused extreme burnout last year!

   Our plans are to have two 6-week sessions with the first  beginning June 6 and ending July 11 and the second beginning July 18 and ending August 22. Hopefully this will prevent us from missing the peak harvest of figs and melons in July, while allowing our family to take a brief vacation.

   Additionally, I was considering a spring CSA for up to 10 members beginning April 28 and ending May 25. There would be no registration fee and a weekly rate of $40. Crops available during this late spring session would include spinach, chard, beet tops and roots, carrots, green onions, fresh herbs, lettuces, collards, arugula, kohlrabi, radishes and perhaps by the end of the session, a bit of potatoes or squash. I will be the only worker during this phase, so I want to keep the customer base at a managable size.

   Contact us at rockingafarm@yahoo.com or call Lori at (478)247-3361 if you are interested in participating this year!

 
 

Taking signups for Summer I and II CSA

 

 

 It is time to sign up for a Summer CSA at Rocking A Sustainable Farm! This year, we changed our program a bit. We will offer two 6-week sessions for $45 per session and $35 per week. If you sign up for both sessions at one time, then you only pay one $45 membership fee.

Our pickup sites will be at Sandersville First Christian Church on Wednesdays from 6-7 p.m., Mary Vinson Library in Milledgeville on Thursdays from 6-7 p.m. and at the farm on an as needed basis.

Of course, we will be glad to work with you on weeks that you are out of town, etc. if you just let us know in advance.

Session I begins Wed., June 1 and goes through Thurs., July 7.

Session II begins Wed,  July 29 and ends Thurs., Sept. 1

We have 25 shares available per session.

Each week you will receive "shares" of at least 5 available crops. Many weeks you will have up to 8 different items. But don't worry about not having enough! Our crop list for summer will include: yellow squash, a few varieties of zucchini, salad greens, green beans (assorted types), tomatoes, corn, potatoes (several types), blackberries (wild), cucumbers--assorted varieties, pattypan squash, eggplants, peppers, okra, tomatillos, onions, sweet potatoes, muscadines, pears, figs and more! See our listing on the home page under farms for more.
