Our First Boxes Will Be Here Soon

 Cedarmore Farm Information Sheet

  We want to let you know that your first pick up of the 2013 CSA season will be this coming Tuesday April 30th.
   Just a short update to let everyone know how things are going here on the farm.  As Andy has mentioned before we are having a late spring.  At this point most of the crops are about two weeks behind schedule.  There is a lot of stuff growing out there but they are just going to be off to a slow start.  Your first few weeks of the season will be very lean as far as produce is concerned.  However, they will be putting in maple syrup, canned goods, eggs or whatever they have plenty of to make up for the shortage in produce.  In next week's produce  box newsletter Andy will give a more detailed explanation on why the crops are running late this season.  In the meantime, please relax and rest assured their crops are looking very good, only they are running a few weeks late this year.

Pick Up Information
If you are going to be out of town and are unable to pick up your box on a certain pick-up date, you can notify us ahead of time. They will skip your share that week and double your share the following week. You are allowed to do this up to three times during the 2012 season.  If you have something come up at the last minute and can not pick up your share at the scheduled time please notify by email and they will contact the pick up location and do their best  to arrange a time that you can pick it up. Andy and Lizzie want to do everything that they can to insure that everyone gets their produce, eggs and canned or baked goods.When you go to your pick-up location to pick up your CSA box, eggs or whatever else you have to pick up, please take time to be sure to pick up your stuff and leave the other people's stuff there. This can cause a lot of confusion and problems if you pick up the wrong stuff. If you are having someone else pick up your share please make sure and let them know that your name will be on the produce box. Eggs should be in a box or crate and will also have your name on them.
   They do ask that you bring back your empty box from the previous week and flatten it and stack it neatly. It will help them out if you return empty egg cartons and berry boxes also. Besides helping keep the CSA costs down, returning containers for reuse helps lessen the impact on the environment as well.
Farm Tour Day
   Andy and Lizzie wants everyone to know that members are welcome to come out and visit the farm. Just let them know when you would like to come out and they will set up a time with you. Just email or use snail mail to get in touch with them.  They also have a farm tour day tentatively  scheduled for June 29th. They will be sending you more information on this later in the season.

  If you have any questions please let them know by writing or emailing.  Thank you and we are all  looking forward to the season.
