A Letter from Fenton’s Produce

Hello -

We hope this letter finds everyone doing well and enjoying the holidays and time spent with family and friends.

We have been busy planning for the 2014 season. We are looking at seed catalogs and we have been ordering plants. We are looking to add some new and different crops to our list this year. We like to try different varieties of produce every year and this gives you a chance to try something new as well!

This will be our 5th season running our CSA. Every year we try to do a better job than the year before – there is always room for improvement. This year we will be expanding to 200 members (this past year we were at 163 members). So, we are looking to do 100 members on Tuesdays and 100 members on Thursdays – so if you know what day you want make sure to get your membership application in so that day will be reserved for you.

We will again be offering either a full share or a half share this year. (Typically a full share will feed a family of 4). The cost of the half share is $250 and the cost of the full share will be $425.

The days (Tuesday and Thursday) and the pick up times (2 p.m. – 7 p.m.) will remain the same. The season will start on Tuesday, June 10th or Thursday, June 12th and will run through Tuesday, November 11th – Thursday, November 13th. The season will run for 23 weeks. If for some reason you can’t make it on your day, you will automatically come on the other day that the CSA is offered. With us being GAP certified (Good Agricultural Practices) our food safety program, we will not be able to have people just randomly stop by to come and get their produce. Sorry if this will cause any inconveniences.

When paying for your membership you can pay by cash, credit/debit and we also except credit cards. We take either Mastercard, Visa, Discover or American Express. If you want to pay by credit card you will have to stop by the house so I can run your card. I have to run your card manually, which for security reasons, will be better for both you and I.

I will again this year be sending out the weekly updates on both our Web Page (www.fentonsproduce.com) and through an email.

We are looking forward to the 2014 growing season and growing the freshest produce possible.

FRESH FROM THE FARM TO YOU……………………………..

April 1st is fast approaching……….

So, who is enjoying this blustery day at home – inside where it is warm – and not out on the roads!!  It’s a good thing we don’t have to walk to far to get to work (just across the driveway) but today even that was challenging!!
This was the view outside the greenhouse………………. and it has actually really gotten a lot worse – the wind is really blowing now – even heard some thunder!!
And this is the view inside of the greenhouse – I am starting to plant the hanging baskets!
Paul was planting tomatoes………….
