The Winter CSA is afoot!
We are pleased to continue our work with Weathervane Farm
in Buena Vista (pictured above) and have several offerings from them
that will make the Winter CSA (beets, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes)!
Weathervane is a rich gem of scaled, quality, and soil-building agriculture
that we have here in the inter-mountain West, (and quite beautifully situated!).
From Weathervane Farm: "Our commitment to you is not to use any petrochemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. It is our belief that healthy soil is required for healthy plants, free of pests and disease. We strive to understand and work in partnership with the organisms around us from the ground level of roots and soil up to trees and birds. The fertility of our soil is managed through the use of green manure crops, compost application, mineral additions, crop rotation, and cultivating our plantings with the use of the tractor or with hoe in hand."
The 2017/18 Winter CSA will consist of two $50 boxes, $100 for the program.
1st Box: November 17th (with Turkeys)
2nd Box: January 12th
