Farmer’s Note, September 12th Fruit Share

Dear CSA Member
After such difficult and trying times we are so happy to be able to deliver fruit to members with a Fruit Share this next week.  The deliveries will be every other week and the amount will be double the standard share.  We will try to find a good variety of fruit for you each week.  The fruit farms we work with are located on the other side of the Hudson River from our farm and did not receive any of the flooding and ruin of our county.  They had rain, but came out with their harvest intact.
Market Place orders can be placed online at the farm website and we will deliver those orders with the Fruit Shares every other week.  We just received Tomato Sauce and Salsa that we had produced during the peak tomato harvest this summer. We have been working with Jim Hyland of Winter Sun Farm and Farm to Table Co Packers.  Jim has established a new processing facility near by the farm in Kingston NY.  The Salsa and Tomato Sauce are available through the Market Place along with Dill Pickles, Coffee, Honey and Maple Syrup.  You do need to log into your account so if you are having any trouble, please send me an e-mail and I will send your log in information to you.
We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of the CSA members.   We know how difficult it is for members not to receive any more Vegetable Shares after the flood and it has been devastating for us. The decisions we needed to make always had the CSA member in the forefront.  Without the support of the CSA and the financial structure that the CSA membership secures for the farm, we do not think our farm would have been able to survive the loss of the harvest at such a critical time of the season.  Because of CSA and the members, we are looking ahead to next season.  Thank you.
