2018 CSA Shares Now Available!

Hi folks! It’s that time of year again, and we’re busy planning for next season. Some of the projects we’re working on are:

  • A new deer fence for our field across the street (where we will plant our 2018 sweet corn!)
  • Some new mini greenhouses, which will help us have more variety earlier and later in the season
  • A bed flamer, used to kill weeds before planting, with minimal soil disturbance
  • Ordering seeds
  • Tractor and truck maintainence
  • Preparing our main greenhouse for early spring peas and carrots
  • Expanding our irrigation system
  • And the list goes on…

You can find our 2018 application in the top right corner of this page. Please read carefully, as we have made a few changes to our CSA member agreement from last year.

Best wishes and Happy Holidays!
-Spencer, Jackie, & Julia

Storrs Winter Market Schedule

Hi everyone! We just had our last outdoor market of the season this Saturday and will be moving indoors for the winter. Here is the winter schedule for the Storrs Farmers’ Market (our other markets will resume next spring):

December 9 & 23
January 13 & 27
February 10 & 24
March 10 & 24
April 7 & 21

The winter market is held from 3-5PM @ the Mansfield Public Library, 54 Warrenville Rd. Mansfield Center, CT 06250

We are likely to have root vegetables, such as carrots, onions, and garlic, and some greens, such as lettuce and spinach, available throughout December. Our sales and winter greens production will dictate how long we will be attending into the new year.
