Update From Austin Family Farm

Posted 5/29/2014 9:11am by Tim Austin.

Hi to all our loyal CSA Customers,

We hope you are enjoying fabulously nice weather as we have.

Last week it came to our attention that many, if not most, of our emails that we have been sending out from our website were hung up.  Therefore, we have no idea which emails went out and which ones failed.   To solve the problem we have switched to Gmail and have been assured that the problem won't recur.  So you may receive emails from us via AOL or Gmail.

The farm is abuzz with activity as the land wakes from its winter slumber.  Planting of vegetable seeds is in full swing.  Pruning the trees and berry canes has been completed. Clay keeps the water flowing without a hitch.  Now it is up to Mother Nature.  We expect to make our first deliveries early July. We will send out an informational email a week prior to the first delivery.

In the off season we had a whirlwind year.  The Paonia High School football team won the state championship in the fall and William earned all-state honors for running back.  The same boys won the state wrestling tournament, although Will was ranked #1 in state he suffered a concussion in the regional tournament and was unable to compete at state. He competed in the state track meet in Denver a couple weeks ago winning a 4th and 8th place medals in hurdles and 4x400 relay.  Eric and William graduated from high school just last week.  William will be getting married in August and heading to attend the Colorado School of Mines in the Fall. Eric plans to take vocational classes to supplement his plan to continue his dream of being a farmer. Earlier this month Dierdre and I completed the purchase of a small farm a couple miles from the main farm.  The first task is to get it cleaned up, brush removed, old fences torn out, rocks picked up off the fields and get an old pond buried and leveled. It has been a very busy off-season!

This email is to update you on your account.  The final payment is due June 15 so that we can get all the administrative tasks completed before our season really kicks into high gear.

We want to thank you again for supporting our small family farm.   Without you we couldn't do what we love to do.

Thank you for supporting your local farmers!

 

Sincerely,

Tim Austin
