Happy New Year from Corvus Landing Farm! I hope everyone is staying warm and dry and enjoying at least a few long relaxing nights. Here at the farm we’ve been getting some much needed down time: petting the cat, sitting by the wood stove, and cooking delicious meals with whatever veggies we have in storage and still hanging on in the field.
Winter is a great time to work on planning, and high on my list is getting the CSA set up and registration open. We’re expecting another good jump in production this year after all the changes we made last year, so we’re adding new CSA options for 2017! First off, we’ll be eliminating the extended season option, and instead we’ll be adding 2 more weeks in the fall to everyone’s shares. This year’s CSA will run from June 12 to November 2. We’ll also be offering a la carte Thanksgiving shares, which will be a mix of storage crops and perishables just before the holiday.
In addition to our usual CSA model, we’ll be offering Farm Stand Select shares, a hybrid CSA with market style pickup and more choice in items, available at the farm stand only. We’ll also be offering Market Choice CSA shares, which will work as a prepaid voucher card usable at any of our market booths. This will allow more choice and flexibility for members and let more people enjoy the benefits of CSA.
Did you have trouble remembering to pick up your share this season? We’ll be trialing home delivery this year in Neskowin and Lincoln City. Eating healthy couldn’t be easier, unless we cooked it for you too…
We’re working on finalizing drop sites, times, and registration details, but I thought I’d give you a heads up about what changes are coming. We’ll be opening registration for returning members by the end of the month, and for new members by mid February. I hope you’ll be a member of our 2017 CSA!
