2009 CSA comes to a close

A perfect end-of-the season project:  Eli, Bill, Carolyn and Angelica painting the wall of our walk-in cooler with some giant carrots and tomatoes!

It’s amazing to us, but the sixth season of Hatchet Cove Farm has come and gone.  We know that for many of you it’ll be a cold hard return to the world of supermarket veggies! We’re looking forward to a couple months of a slower pace, though, and before we know it, January will be here and it’ll be time to get to work on next season. 

Carolyn Niehaus, our final 2009 apprentice, has stuck with us through to the very end of the season, and we’ve all so enjoyed her presence here at the farm.  She’ll be doing the final Rockland delivery for us on Sunday morning, since we’ll be attending MOFGA’s Farmer to Farmer conference.   We’re grateful for all her hard work and good cheer, and for the effort she’s put into winning over the hearts of our little ones.  Thank you Carolyn! 

Remember to let us know  by next week if you want a 15lb bag of storage carrots for $25.

This season really drove home to us what a crucial piece the CSA plays in our viability as a farm.  Due to our members’ commitment to us, we were able to make it through this season’s difficult months of rain, more rain, and then blight.  And at least for us, it felt like such sweet relief when the bounty finally did come in, and we were able to fill your share bags to the top.  So thank you for being a part of this  season, and for making our work feel so appreciated and important.  We love being a part of this community, and we are already looking forward to next season.  Thank you,  have a wonderful winter, and we’ll be in touch in the spring!

Be well,

Reba, Bill, Eli and Cecilia
