Notes From the Field
Welcome to week 10 of your CSA. It's starting to feel a little bit like fall on the farm, now that we are planting fall and winter crops, turning fields that used to hold crops, and saying goodbye to our intern, Morrison. There is something sad about the transition to fall, but for the farmer, it is an exciting time of year. We start to haul in the crops that we've been watching grow for the summer months, we fill our coolers and cellar with produce that we will continue to offer throughout the winter months, and we start thinking about next year, trying to remember what we want to do differently and what new things we want to try. It is a time to say good bye, but it also is a time for us to think ahead with excitement.
On that note, we have an exciting announcement pertaining to one of our farmers. Landen Tetil, owner of Bean Pole Farm, and our longest running farm incubator participant, just bought her own farm! She has been with us for three years now, and decided it was time to find property of her own that she can settle down on and continue to build her business. She bought 40 acres about 8 miles from the farm, so we are excited that she will continue to be close while working to realize her dreams on her new property. We are incredibly proud of Landen, and excited to see what Bean Pole Farm becomes! She will likely continue at The North Farm for one more season as she transitions to her new property, so keep an eye out for her products in this year's and next year's CSA boxes from The North Farm.
We hope you enjoy this week's share, and as always, thanks for your support. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, please feel free to follow the link at the end of this newsletter.
