We are very excited that our deliveries will be starting on June 15!   There are some beautiful vegetables coming for our early shares and all through the summer and fall!  Our early tomato plants are loading up with fruit, the lettuce is heading up, raspberry plants are loaded with fruit and we have already started harvesting broccoli for market.

High Meadow Farm, Watertown (2 locations), Lake Mills, Jefferson, Fort Atkinson, CAMBRIDGE (New site!!), Oconomowoc (2 locations) and Madison’s East Side!

CSA Sign-ups are Open!

Warm weather is on its way and we have begun our seeding for 2016!  Baby leeks are up and spring share crops are on their way!  Early spring shares will bring lots of salad greens, cooking greens, spinach, green onions, spring herbs, rhubarb and asparagus!  A few weeks after our spring shares end, our summer shares will start in June and the boxes will be filled with all of the vegetables of the spring, summer and fall season, right into October. Optional organic, soy-free egg shares will begin with the summer vegetable shares too!

We invite you to join us this season for another great year of FRESH, ORGANIC produce delivered to a location near you! To Join, go to our “sign-up” page.

`Open Farm’ Market Day Saturday, January 23!

If you are running low on certified organic potatoes and onions, now is the time to come to the farm and stock up!

We’ll be hosting an indoor market day sale at the farm Saturday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.  We have 11 varieties of organic potatoes, several types of beautiful onions available bulk or in 5, 10 or 20 lb bags.  Also, shallots and garlic as well as some of our other roots and storage vegetables.

We have fresh, organic and soy-free eggs and stewing hens available too!

Giving Thanks

I have had a few quiet days and time to reflect on the past year.  I have so much to be grateful for; family and pets, friends, good health and loyal farm members and market customers.  Our workers and employees give me extra pause.  We could not manage without them and they are so much a part of our farm.

Even with the snowstorm last weekend, we had a successful market at the farm.  Matt, Kevin, Libby and Maria worked especially hard to get the last of our harvesting done and potatoes and onions bagged while Mike and I scurried to get our pastured chickens into a protected winter home. (Just in the nick of time, too!) Our greenhouse is up and almost ready to start seeds in in January and all of our equipment is safely tucked away for winter.

So, for all of that and so much more, I am very thankful to all of you who are a part of our farm and family.  I hope that you have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Gratefully, Meg

Fall/winter shares are available now!

The harvest continues at the farm, as we get ready to fill our winter share boxes with sweet fall crops like tasty carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and Romanesca, spinach, potatoes and much, much more.   We have grown a nice selection of onions, leeks, shallots and garlic and 10 varieties of potatoes.  Winter shares will have a great sampling of these as well as winter squash, pie pumpkins and sweet potatoes to name a few.

Sign up soon for our fall/winter shares; 3 nice deliveries of organic, local and fresh produce to sustain your family through the holidays and into next year with recipes and storage tips included.   These shares are filling up fast!  $190.00

Egg shares are available over the winter months also; 10 egg deliveries over 20 weeks. (Eggs are delivered every-other week, so you will receive your eggs and then miss a week…repeat.) Egg shares begin with vegetable shares on November 18 and then continue throughout the season.  $55.00.

Here is some of the produce that you can look forward to:

Let Summer CSA Season Begin!

20150602_114616Our summer deliveries start June 10 and 11!  We are excited to start harvesting and sending out boxes of delicious, certified organic produce.  Members should have all received at least 1 email regarding the start of the season by now and there will be more coming soon with details about pick-up and what produce to look forward to. The crops all look great and I am very excited about the berries and tree fruit that are loaded and look fabulous!

20150604_150715Our hens are all out on lush pasture and laying amazing organic and soy-free eggs with deep orange yolks. We have a beautiful flock of young ladies that are about to start laying soon, too!

We still have produce shares,and egg shares available for the season and we hope that you’ll join us! Sign up here or stop and visit us at the Fort Farmers market tomorrow to sign up or learn more about membership.

Spring is a-Coming!

An August share

 

I mean it, too, it really is!  Although we still have 2 winter share deliveries coming up in February, we are getting ready to start planting seeds for our spring shares and onions and a few other things for Summer shares.

The membership sign-ups have been coming in and that gets us very excited to get to work.  We are looking forward to trying some new plants this year and re-planting some of the old favorites.

February is actually a pretty busy month for us.  As we get ready to plant, we also have the Organic Farming Conference to look forward to in La Crosse, FairShare workshops to attend, brochures to print and hand out and fliers to hang.  (Help us get the word out!!) We start taking applications for seasonal and year-round help as well as signing up our work-share members now and order our necessary equipment, irrigation supplies and other supplies so that we are ready to go when we start growing and delivering organic produce to our members.

We are looking forward to this season as we always do and hope that you will join us for the 2015 season!
