Thank you so much for joining us for our the spring season. First shares will be delivered Thursday, 3/16. I will be sending out more details next week to make sure you feel confident finding your pick up location.
We are so glad you found Three Sisters Community Farm. Eating fresh from our farm is a wonderful gift that you have given yourself. We started Three Sisters Community Farm in 2011 because we realized that in order to find the highest quality and safest foods we needed to grow them ourselves.
Many of the veggies in this weeks share have been in cold storage for the last 3 months. When you receive them, they will keep best in your refrigerator. This is because, taking them out of cold storage at this point will trigger them to begin growing and they will very quickly sprout which pulls energy out of the root.
We are glad to be able to offer fresh over-wintered spinach from our hi-tunnel. We have limited this to one per customer with the following reasoning: each member has the ability to select one bag...we harvest everything that is available and divide it equally. Doing it this way ensures each person gets the maximum amount of spinach and that we use use the minimum number of plastic bags.
Here is what the spring season forecast:
We anticipate that the carrots, potatoes, beets, fresh spinach and mushrooms will be available for all 4 shares. We have a lot of onions and cabbage but will have to watch the quality on these-we expect that they will be in good shape for at least the first two deliveries. Once these have run out we will add shallots-which tend to store forever-into the lineup. We were bummed to discover that our storage space got too cold for our winter squash--and as a result it didn't keep. We hope to add additional fresh items from hi-tunnel and greenhouse production for the remaining 3 shares such as microgreens, baby kale, cilantro, lettuce mix, arugula, radishes and a few other surprises.
We are a community farm which means that your food is grown, harvested and packed by a large group of people with more or less skill depending on the day. YOU are invited to the farm to experience first hand everything that goes into growing the produce in your box. That being said, if something doesn't seem quite right with an item you received in your box...reach out and let us know-it may have slipped past our quality control.
