TapRoot Farms - First Quarter CSA value

Posted on by Justine Mentink

We have made available the weekly values of your first 25 weeks of shares. The original spread sheets were made in the winter by Patricia and Josh to have a weekly plan for the shares. The items were not valued, and in the course of doing that each week we would usually have to omit an item or two. We tried to keep the shares with as much variety as possible but at the same time wanted to make sure you were getting enough staples each week to actually make a meal with. The x's are items that we didn't have enough room for in that weeks share. We are sharing this in hopes that some of you are interested in how and what we valued the shares for each week.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments at csa@taprootfarms.ca. Thanks!

Delivery Update - Friday February 17

Posted on by Justine Mentink

It's another snowy day here at the farm, but we are going to try and get as many deliveries out as possible!

Adam is arriving shortly to the farm and will be delivering to:

Sante Centre - 2:00 - 6:00 PM today and all day Saturday 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Mariposa - 12:00 - 6:00 PM.

Emmanuel Church - we will not be at this pick up today - all the shares will be doubled up next week. 

Friday deliveries will be happening as normal.

If you can't get to the delivery because of day changes or you are stormed in please e-mail CSA@taprootfarms.ca and let us know if you would like a double up next week or to collect on a Saturday location.

 

Many thanks in this week of crazy weather!

Stay safe and warm (and at home if you can!),

Justine

 

 



Snow Day - We will deliver Friday shares on Saturday

Posted on by Justine Mentink

Looks like the roads are still too bad to make deliveries this afternoon. The main roads seem ok, but the roads around the farm still aren't plowed.

We will plan to deliver your shares tomorrow, February 11th. If you will not be able to make it let us know and we will sort out an alternative for you. 

 

Home Deliveries - in the afternoon

AV storage -  4:25 - 5:15 PM

Kingston - 4:35 - 5:10 PM

 

Stay safe! it's really quite beautiful out, just not for driving!

Take care,

Justine



no deliveries Monday, March 21

So much for welcoming spring!

We are postponing deliveries until tomorrow (Tuesday, March 22) because of slippery road conditions and the uncertainty of freezing rain later this afternoon. Monday deliveries will be at the same time, in the same place, one day delayed. 

We expect (and hope!) that this will be the last weather delay this season! :)

 



Vegetable and Herb Add ons

Posted on

Are any of you wishing for more tasty vegetables that you are not getting enough of in your weekly shares? If you are, then you are in luck! Yesterday and today I have spent quite a bit of time working on the add on section, updating and adding products. We now have many delicious vegetables and herbs available for purchase in our add on section, such as yellow and green beans, peas, fresh garlic, cabbage, new potatoes, swiss chard, lettuces, cucumbers and more! For most of these vegetables we offer a smaller size and a bulk option as well, for those of you who wish to preserve these yummy items for the winter, when they won't be available fresh.

Also be sure to check out the fresh herbs that are available. Perhaps you might want to try drying herbs for yourself. Another method of preserving herbs is to either chop them finely, or blend in a food processor. Then mix with a bit of high quality oil and freeze for use later.
