Greetings beloved Summer CSA Members,
Sarahlee here. I’m the one that the majority of you check in with at the market.
It’s a warm, late summer evening here at the farm. I gathered myself a melon and a few peppers. I am about to prepare Ashanti and myself a simple dinner with the last tiny eggplants that were lurking in my fridge. OOoo golly, with pork and cabbage, I savor these last bites of summer.
I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude this time of year. As our last markets are in sight and the storage crops are coming in beautifully and bountifully, I think back to the talented, hard working, and positive team of people that gathered here during a particularly cool spring. From tender greens to heaping summer bounty, it was our pleasure to fill your bags each week. These days, we gather around our meals and explore the deep connection we have with the land and the reward of being so intimate with life-force each day.
We want you to know that we couldn’t do it without you. We could farm for ourselves, but the magnitude of feeding hundreds of people each week, all year long, is downright addicting. Thank you, each of you, for being part of this tremendous season and culinary adventure with us. Thank you for your commitment to this farm, whose purpose is to change the world just a little bit.
As we finish the season, we are walking our fields and greenhouses and taking note of our achievements and room for improvements. We look through your feedback from the survey and we plan for an even better year next year. We very much hope that you had a great experience this year and that you’ll be with us next season!
With gratitude and love,
