Greetings to our CSA 2019 Harvest Season Members!

Posted 4/9/2019 3:57pm by Tim Austin.

Hello!

We just wanted to thank everyone for joining the Austin Family Farm CSA this year – we are on track to have a bountiful harvest season! The snowpack and rains this winter will provide plenty of water for us – we believe that drought will not be an issue this year as it has so often in the past.

Our CSA season will likely start right on schedule – you should start receiving your boxes in mid-July. That’s when we usually have a nice variety of produce in the quantities we need to start sharing our harvest with everyone.

We want to especially thank those who have sent in your payment early. As well as ensuring that you will get your extra box of fruit later on, you have helped us tremendously by providing necessary resources to the farm. It helps them pay for the labor required to get the orchards ready for the season – pruning, fertilizing, and readying the anti-frost mechanisms, the wind machines and smudge pots we rely on to keep the cold temperatures at bay so the early bloomers will survive. (Remember, if you pay in full by May 1st you will get that extra box of fruit!)

Your contribution also helps get seed into the ground, and allows Glenn to work his magic as he develops new apple varieties. One of his creations, called MyJean, was specially made for a friend of the family who could not eat apples due to an intolerance of the acids in them, so he bred the out many of the acids. The extra-sweet apples have proven popular with many of our customers as well.

Thanks again for helping us get our season started, and we look forward to sharing this year’s harvest with you!

Thank you for supporting your local farmers!

 

Sincerely,

Tim Austin
