CSA Planning 2017

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Happy 2017 from all of us here at TapRoot Farms!

Josh and I (Patricia) are in the throws of planning for the growing season ahead. We have created a tentative plan for what would go into the shares each week. This is to ensure we create a production schedule that has veggies available when we plan to have them available. We haven't shared this before because we don't want you to hold us to it in that it is a plan and it will depend on how storage crops hold up or how early or late the season is or if we do or do not have a big wind storm, etc. etc. We are trusting you will appreciate this. We'd love your feedback on what you'd like to see more of or less of based on what we have outlined here. 

Chickens are raised from May - October. This is because they are pastured (free range). It is too cold the rest of the year to raise them. The chicken inventory will run out later on before we have new chickens in June. We have tried hard to work it out so it will last as long as possible. 

Enjoy reviewing and welcome to a new year of food from the farm.

Deliveries to St. Marks will happen tomorrow, Wednesday. Same time and place but out of the back of the van.

Thank you for accommodating, we realize it isn't easy!

Delivery Update

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Good Day Members,

We hope you have dug out from our first Nova Scotia Blizzard of 2016.

The roads are looking better by the hour so we are going to go ahead and deliveries today.

Please keep an eye on facebook or the blog for updates of time delays or changes at the different locations - this is very possible because we are leaving late from the farm.

Many thanks for your support and patience as we get you your food from the farm this week.

Patricia
