In Regards to the Missing Spring Week Due to COVID

All spring csa share member ought to have received an email regarding the credit owed to you for the missing spring week. If you did not receive an email, please let me know and I will get another out to you ASAP.

 

Summer Shares Begin Week of June 21st!

A few of you have reached out about information regarding the start of summer CSA shares. This year we will be starting shares the week of June 21st. We had initially planned to start the week prior, but due to the abnormally dry conditions (thank goodness for the rain tonight!), we had to push the start of shares back by a week. Unfortunately we are not set up to irrigate our fields, so when we go through dry spells, plants tend not to grow very fast. The good news is that our soil stays naturally moist, and what is in the ground is looking beautiful! Albeit a little smaller than we would like to see.

All members should expect an additional email in the coming weeks regarding when and where you will receive your share. I will be sending out a newsletter tonight, and if anyone does not receive it, please let me know and I will re-add you to the list.

In the meantime, our farm store is open daily from dawn til dusk!

 

Pork Ribs, Shoulders, Loins, Sausage, Bacon, and More!

Our meat freezer in the store is chock full of pork products from the pigs next door! We spent the whole summer taking our unmarketable veggies over to feed the pigs, and now our customers can bring it home! We’ll have baby back ribs and pork shoulders for anyone planning on barbecuing for memorial day weekend! There is a limited selection in the store, but if you would like to place a bulk order, shoot me an email and I will pull out more from our storage freezers.

 

2021 Summer CSA Shares

Half Shares are SOLD OUT! 75% of Shares Sold

The focal point of our CSA, our 2021 summer season will run for 16 weeks from the week of June 15th to the final week in September. We are increasing the capacity for summer shares this year, however we urge members to sign up early. Shares were sold out by the beginning of April last year, and we are anticipating a similar demand for shares this year.

Pickup on the farm Tuesday or Wednesday after 3:30pm.

Farm-to-door delivery available in the towns of: Dublin, Fitzwilliam, Harrisville, Jaffrey, Keene, Marlborough, Nelson, Peterborough, Rindge Swanzey, and Winchendon, MA.

For Returning Members:
We are implementing a few changes to our summer share this year (as we always do), but the most noticeable to returning members is our share pickup days. In order to reclaim a maintenance day to focus on produce quality for our members, we are only offering share pickup or delivery on Tuesday or Wednesday this year. We are hoping that with an extra day to work in the fields during the week, we will be able to increase yield, quality, and variety in each share.

Workshares Wanted!

Don’t have time to commit to full or part time employment, but still wanna learn a few things about a local farm? Try being a workshare!

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, workshares also get hands on experience working on the farm, and can deepen their relationship to the food they consume.

This year, we will be compensating workshares with any size share they would like, as well as any of our add-ons, including eggs, bread, maple syrup, and honey. In exchange for the share, workshares will work on the farm one day a week, from 7am-3pm. Workshares will work in the field or barn from 7-11:30, and then will make lunch for the crew in our outdoor kitchen. The crew eats lunch at 1pm, so workshares will also eat lunch with us, followed by cleanup. If there is anyone interested in being a workshare, but not confident making lunch for the crew, we are happy to make other arrangements.

We are excited about the possibility of having more workshares on the farm, and if you or anyone you know are interested, please contact Nolan at employment@traciesfarm.com
