Powisset CSA: Week 20!

Frost kissed radicchio
 
Here we are at Week 20! It's been a wild ride to get to the final week of  the Summer CSA. It is always bitter sweet to reach this point in the season. We are ready for less hectic days and more time spent out of the weather but I will miss CSA days when we get to share this amazing farm with you.  It feels so good to be harvesting such  vibrant greens from the fields right now. With the leaves turning so many shades of red, orange and gold, the farm is simply stunning. Thank you to all of you for being so incredibly supportive and taking this journey with us this season.
 
Winter Share:

We still have a few Winter Shares available! Stop into the farm stand to reserve yours during CSA hours.  If you can't make it to the farm this week I am also happy to email folks a copy to be mailed in.
 
Meat Share:

The Trustees and the regional livestock team are very excited to offer its first ever Meat CSA for the 2016/17 winter season.  We have multiple share sizes to choose from that all include diverse cuts of grass fed beef and pork along with two whole chickens per year, all raised on Trustees farms by Trustees farmers. 

Pickups are held every two weeks from December-April and you can sign up for any pick location that you’d like.   

Chestnut Hill Farm in Southborough on Tuesdays, 2-6 pm

Moose Hill Farm in Sharon on Wednesdays, 2-6 PM

Powisset Farm in Dover on Thursdays, 2-6 PM.

In addition to the two whole birds annually, the small size includes 5 lbs. of beef, 2 lbs. of pork per pickup ($825 total share cost).  The medium size includes 6 lbs. of beef, 3 lbs. of pork ($1045 total share cost) and the large includes 8 lbs. of beef and 4 lbs. of pork per pickup ($1375 total share cost).

To sign up or for more information about the CSA, our farms and our meat, please visit thetrustees.org/meatcsa or email meatcsa@thetrustees.org
 
Info about Summer Share 2017:
 
Puddles, rare enough this year to be photo worthy
Primary shareholders keep a lookout in your email the week of October 24th for a CSA  renewal notice. Summer share renewals will be done online again this year. I am also excited to announce that we will have a 10 week, half share available in 2017.
 
Winter farm store hours:
The farm store will be open during winter share hours as well as October 29th, 10-2. Additional winter farm store hours will be posted in the blog and on the website.
 
In the share this week:
The share this week will again highlight leafy greens including lettuce, salad greens, kale, tatsoi, spinach, and cabbage. You will also have onions, garlic, salad turnips, hot peppers, fresh herbs, winter squash, and potatoes to pick up.

PYO:
Feel free to pick hot pick hot peppers this week. Please refrain from picking herbs as we are picking them for the share.
