2016 CSA

Posted by madalyn warren
Its the end of February and the seed orders are coming in and onions and celery seeds are about to sprout.  This wacky winter reached a new level of strange last night with low barometric pressure bringing a blustery rainstorm with thunder and lightening.    I have been chatting with Heidi Woolever from Edgemere Farm about collaborating on this seasons CSA in Rockaway.  I think it sounds like a great idea for many reasons... 1. When an island of abundance in a food desert connects with rural farms to trickle in crops throughout a season, DIVERSITY abounds  2.  Working with another farm to distribute and promote CSA shares boosts the quality of service in our supply chain to a new level with a productive feedback loop, from handling at the farm to preparing in your kitchen.  3.  With a shared vision of a healthier Rockaway, Edgemere Farm and Straight Out of the Ground CSA together will increase local food appreciation and consumption, which in turn fuels all the creative, environmental and social projects happening Rockaway.

thank you 2015

Hello, Where did 2015 go?  It was a total pleasure to grow, harvest and communicate with you all this season. In the end I know if you were eating with me for the 22 weeks CSA season your still feeling REALLY good right now,  it was as diverse and vibrant as one could wish for.  The extended fall is reminding me of winter 2011-12,  a warm and no snow winter, the prospects of harvesting plants in the winter with an early december start sounds bleak under normal circumstance but today, Dec2 7am and its 45 degrees out.  The growth of the farm this season included the construction of a 28x84' greenhouse for spring transplants, peak ginger and tumeric and late season greens and flowers for salad.  Very pleased to announce that Kimchee Harvest is now prepared in Kitchen Wings, our new added value kitchen built out this summer with the help of sooo many people.  2 cows have joined the farm, Isadora the Guernsey and Blink the Jersey.  AND the hits keep coming inch by inch in the greenhouse, sowing seeds of winter greens.

2015 SEASON celebrates all our CSA members, rural and urban.
