Tuesday deliveries happening today

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

All Tuesday CSA Members.

Your shares are being delivered today to the same place as per usual on Tuesday.

Please note: Take Frozen Tomatoes because they are not in your share box.

Grainery  Pickup is at 4:45

St. Mark's is  until 5:30.

Thank you and so sorry for the inconvenience of the weather and in some cases my lack of clear communication.

Happy Friday! What a week!


Saturday Deliveries: Updated

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Saturday CSA Members,

The road report to Mount Uniacke isn't great.

The forecast for the rest of the day in the delivery areas and the Valley isn't great.

I need to travel with Lily and Frank and with freezing rain I just don't think it is necessary today.

I will plan to depart and be at all of the delivery locations tomorrow same time, same place.

If that does not work for you, then we can either double up next week or you can pickup at Hawthorne St on Monday between 4:30-5:30. 

It may turn out to rain all day, in which case I am sorry for the trouble. It is freezing rain here right now. 



Storm post #2

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Good Morning Everyone,

It is too dangerous to travel today to deliver CSA shares. Not to mention most of the places we deliver to are closed today.

I would like to reschedule the deliveries to Friday. I don't have permission yet from all locations that this is doable. That will take me until tomorrow given that most people aren't at work today. If you wish to switch to a location tomorrow, Wednesday or Saturday that is fine but please email me with:

Subject Line: Storm CSA location change

Your name:

What shares and sizes you get:

Where you wish to pickup:

Other than the chores today, the farm will be quiet and we will wait for the storm to pass.

The kids are very happy to be home from school:)



We love feedback! :)

It's always nice to know when we send stuff out to the universe (like recipes!), that people are trying and enjoying them. And it's even nicer to know our members are happy. We received this wonderful letter the other day and wanted to share it with you.


Hi Patricia,

I thought you might like to see a couple of pics of the great pizza we enjoyed with the beet pesto recipe from the roasted root blog...it was so good...we really love beets in our house anyway and I grow some of our own each summer but for anyone who isn’t a fan this is definitely the way to go...next time we get some fresh ones I’ll be trying the beet hummus...sounds yummy!

Thanks for taking the time to include recipes and links to blogs when you send out the weekly share update, we’ve found a lot of new ideas and haven’t been disappointed yet. :)

Just finished the sign up for next year, adding eggs too. Yay! We’ve changed our delivery to Mondays, since it turned out Saturdays weren’t always the best option for us.

And thank you for all of you at the farm, allowing us access to fresh, local veggies and fruit. We had known about Taproot for a couple of years and wondered whether we’d be able to utilize all the extra vegetables (we have a fair sized veggie garden of our own each summer) but have certainly enjoyed the extra bounty.


Thank you taking the time to write. :) We're grateful for every one of our members and we welcome your feedback. Even without delicious looking photos.

Have a great weekend!
