Week 5 of Summer Shares 2019! Fall Share Delivery Workshares Needed! Update for Raspberry Shares

Raspberry Share Update Unfortunately our raspberry rows suffered a bad bout of winter kill this year, and we are not going to be able to fulfill all of our raspberry shares this season.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and will try our best to make it up to you! If you have any questions or concerns, please email farmers@traciesfarm.com Week 5 of Summer Shares! Welcome to Week 5 of our Summer CSA Shares! WOW! What a weekend! We couldn’t believe how hot it felt at times this weekend, and we hope everyone stayed cool!

Week 3 of Summer Shares 2019! Pro-rated Summer Shares Available!

  Week 3 of Summer Shares! Welcome to Week 3 of our Summer CSA Shares! A few people have asked, so we thought we would clarify how our Baby Lettuce and Flower Share works. Those two add-ons run for 10 weeks out of the 16 week season, so you will not receive them every week this summer. We typically start them both around week 6 to run for the final 10 weeks of the season, but may start them earlier if our beds are coming in nicely. The veggies on the farm are sizing up nicely for baskets this summer! This will be another week with greens dominated shares, but by next week beets will be ready, peas will be a mainstay, and cucumbers should start making their way into the baskets! A few things to note for shares this … Continue reading »

Our Snap Peas are really starting to come in, though! We are going to try our best to get snap peas in the baskets of all of our members this week. That may mean that portions are small for this week, but by next week we are expecting them to be producing in full force with ample peas for all share sizes!
