CSA Planning 2017

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Happy 2017 from all of us here at TapRoot Farms!

Josh and I (Patricia) are in the throws of planning for the growing season ahead. We have created a tentative plan for what would go into the shares each week. This is to ensure we create a production schedule that has veggies available when we plan to have them available. We haven't shared this before because we don't want you to hold us to it in that it is a plan and it will depend on how storage crops hold up or how early or late the season is or if we do or do not have a big wind storm, etc. etc. We are trusting you will appreciate this. We'd love your feedback on what you'd like to see more of or less of based on what we have outlined here. 

Chickens are raised from May - October. This is because they are pastured (free range). It is too cold the rest of the year to raise them. The chicken inventory will run out later on before we have new chickens in June. We have tried hard to work it out so it will last as long as possible. 

Enjoy reviewing and welcome to a new year of food from the farm.

    I love how often carrots are on the schedule! 😁 Also this made me generally really excited for the new share season. I have been missing the delicious taproot veg!

    I have figured out how to use the kale!  Wash it, stem it, dry it off and freeze it as it.  Grind it up for soups, into mashed potatoes, just about anything!  Nobody knows it is there!

    My neighbours will be happy of all the Brussels sprouts I'm going to pass on the them!

    Joke aside, I'm super excited for the veggies and for trying out new recipes.
