Happy New Year from Tracie’s Farm!

  2020 CSA SHARES ARE NOW AVAILABLE!   Spring and Summer CSA shares for 2020 are now available through the link below, or on our website! Workshares Wanted!! One of the things that the farmers at Tracie’s want to prioritize this summer is bringing in more workshares. Back when Tracie was running the farm she used to have a large crew of workshares, connecting people from across the community to the farm. Workshare numbers have dwindled over the past couple of years, and this is the year we would like to reverse that trend. Workshares are considered a part of the crew while they are on the farm, and receive a CSA share in return for their service. We love the practice because it connects us to our community, and our community to us. In addition to a share basket, … Continue reading »

New Beginnings On the Farm With the New Year just a few days away, and the thought of spring creeping up on me, I wanted to share with our CSA members and community members a little bit about myself and Tracie’s Farm. My name is Jack Rixey, and I have been the farm manager for the past two years at Tracie’s, and am entering my fifth year on the farm in total. My duties as manager consisted of running the farm and the business on a daily basis, and doing much of the back-end work for the farm as well. I plan the fields, handle emails and marketing, write the newsletter, and many other … Continue reading »

Final Week of Fall Shares 2019! Pickup Tuesday, Nov. 26th! Thank You CSA Members!

  THANK YOU CSA MEMBERS! The last week of CSA shares for the 2019 season is finally upon us, and the crew on the farm is looking forward to a little time to relax before gearing up again for 2020. This year has been full of surprises, as they all are. Some of the surprises were wonderful, and some difficult, but they all offered an opportunity to learn and improve. We are happy with how our 2019 CSA shares panned out, but we also saw a lot of areas where we can, and will, improve upon for 2020. Most importantly, however, is how you, our CSA members and supporting community members, perceived shares this year. Without you our farm would not exist, and we aim to put together the best CSA shares and farm store we possibly can in order … Continue reading »

Fall Shares Week 6! Thanksgiving Pickup Tuesday, Nov. 26th

  Week 6 of Fall Shares! FOR THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING PICKUP WILL BE ON TUE. NOV. 26TH DELIVERY SHARES WILL RECEIVE BAGS THIS WEEK IN ORDER TO RETRIEVE BASKETS. It’s hard to believe we only have two more weeks of shares, and one is a short week. Once we finish up the last week of shares on the farm, the crew will officially be on our winter break. We will still have work to do intermittently around the farm, but in the winter we dial it back and let the farmers work their winter jobs. We are all lucky to have employment setup so that we can seamlessly transition from one to the other, and back again in the spring. We are excited for the final two weeks of shares, and are already looking forward to starting back up … Continue reading »

Fall Shares Week 4 2019! An Important Announcement From Tracie Loock

Tracie’s Farm is Changing Hands A message to our CSA and community members from Tracie Loock Today, I sold the farm business and land to Tom and Mary Frazier of Elephant Rock Farm, LLC.
