Week 22 - Tucking in, Looking Forward

 

Dear Spoon Full Farm Family,

We have reached the season when we hang up dog towels by the front door of the house. Outside, a light rain falls from low clouds, and wet pooches claw at the door, wanting to jump on our couches. In the garden, we roll out black plastic fabric as covers for some garden beds and say, “goodnight.” In other beds we plant garlic, which will shoot up pretty green stems, next Spring.

Speaking of next Spring, we’re thinking about your 2019. In particular, your food in 2019. Your Spoon Full CSA. We've been wondering: how can we make your Spoon Full CSA more perfect?

What if you could (but wouldn’t have to) choose which vegetables you get in every box? What if you could easily pay week-by-week and set your vacation days in advance? What if you could add eggs, beef, honey, and ferments to each box with a single click?

Happy day: you can! We’ve joined forces with an online CSA software company called Harvie, which makes all of these features super easy.

 
 

2019 CSA signups will be open very soon! In the meantime, many of you have expressed interest in continuing to receive eggs during the cold season, and in deliveries of amazing Spoon Full grass-finished meat. This stuff, along with honey and ferments, will be available for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly pickup!

If you want us to bring you eggs and more, starting November 18, you can sign up right here: https://www.harvie.farm/signup/spoon-full-farm

Wow! Technology. Please sign up if you are interested, and let’s start this wonderful custom-CSA journey together! Please also, super-quickly, give us this super-quick feedback for next year:
