CSA Week 14

Some of the most exciting news on the farm this week isn’t exactly about vegetables but about, well…soda!  Capt’n Eli’s is donating a keg of root beer to the pizza party fundraiser at the farm on October 9th, and Maine Root is donating five cases of their natural soda, as well!  So now you have to come!  If you have musical, creative, cooking or baking skills that you think could be put to use please let us know (silkscreened t-shirts will be for sale and we could also sell other things that members would like to donate to the cause).   Or most importantly, just save your pennies and come enjoy the great food and company!
 
For those of you who pick up at the UU church on Sundays, give a big thanks to the apprentices doing the delivery for us.  Bill and I are going to Lubec this weekend, just the two of us, and our awesome crew is holding down the fort at the farm.  We’ve never done anything like this before, and it feels very decadent, but we’re really looking forward to it.  Also, at the UU delivery, Terra Optima farm will now be bringing additional meats (such as pork and beef) for sale.  So even if you’re not a chicken or egg CSA member you are welcome to stop by and see what she has available.  
 
The online link for the fall CSA sign-up will be sent out in a separate email this week.  I’m finalizing some pick-up location plans and will have it out to you asap.  Bulk crops that are still available are the following:  kale/chard/collards (10 bunches/$15), green beans (5 lbs/$10), canning tomatoes (20lbs/$30).  
 
Thank you everyone!

A Pizza, Salad and Ice Cream Social Fundraiser at Hatchet Cove Farm

Uproot Pie Co. will be making pizzas in their portable pizza oven with ingredients from HCF and the add-on CSA farms. Tours of the farm, live music, a chance to try your hand at milking the cow, and more! If you’re interested in helping out, please contact Reba at info@hatchetcovefarm.com.

Contributors thus far include: Uproot Pie Co, Good Tern Co-op, Rising Tide Co-op, Terra Optima Farm, Appleton Creamery, Oyster Creek Mushroom Co, The Village Bakery and Café, Oyster River Winegrowers, I Love Pie, Capt’n Eli’s sodas, Maine Root natural soda, and more to come!
