Heritage Farm -- Help.....We need ya!....Please read (oh and don't forget your weekly orders by tonight for Wednesday farm truck)
Many of you will remember back in the fall when we did our early bird CSA and farm share sales that I was mentioning how important a part of our overall farm health these two programs were and how the winter season tended to be long, hard and draining on farm operational budgets etc….Well they are and it is!! We are about 1/3 of the way through the 2016/17 winter season and are really feeling the pinch of the seasonal slow down so we are asking for your help. For this sprin we are looking at close to $13,000.00 in startup costs for organic seeds, fertilizer,mulches,greenhouse supplies,irrigation supplies, transplants,livestock purchases and the like. Unfortunately our sales through the winter have been a little sluggish so far and we still have some CSA and farm share slots that are open for 2017. We normally see a HUGE interest in these areas as spring approaches and the market season opens but the time when we need the help is sooner rather than later.
So…..where do you come in? Glad you asked……If you(or someone you know) may be interested in the CSA or Farm share program for 2017 please consider joining or investing sooner rather than later. The link below will take you directly to the ordering window on the online store and below it is a link you can cut, paste and forward to your friends and neighbors. For those of you that have already joined us we THANKYOU from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to an AWESOME 2017!
