SUMMER CSA // WEEK 13
“If you buy from people who are taking care of the land, your supporting the future of this country.” – Alice Waters
PRODUCER SPOTLIGHT: Hobbs Family Farm // Avondale, Co
We are an independent family farm located in southeastern Colorado in one of the prime seed production regions of the world. Our 30 acre farm is located in Avondale, which is on the east side of the Rocky Mountains near Pueblo, Colorado. Our elevation is 4556’, latitude 38.2°, average rainfall 12”. Our arid climate, mineral-rich soils, clean irrigation water, hot days and cool nights produce exceptionally high quality garlic and seeds.
We grow certified organic garlic and open pollinated vegetable seeds for market growers and home gardeners. We select farmer friendly varieties for suitability to organic systems, drought hardiness, storage, and specialty markets. Our six year rotation, along with the region's aridity, keeps disease and pest pressure to a minimum and yields premium quality food, seed and forage. We are certified organic by the Colorado Department of Agriculture #113.
THE FINAL BOX OF SUMMER 2017
Dear CSA Shareholders,
The final box! What a summer it’s been! We hope the eating has been good, and that you had some time to get out and play. Your direct participation in your local food economy means a lot to all our producers, to us at Valley Roots Food Hub, and everyone at the SLV Local Foods Coalition. THANK YOU! We will be doing a Winter CSA distribution consisting of one box in November before Thanksgiving and one in January. Please send your CSA boxes to your pick up point as soon as possible. Those babies cost $12 each and we are hoping to make them last for many seasons. Stay tuned for a survey via email so we can receive your feedback. Bon appetite!
