Hi All, Happy Rainy Friday!
I just wanted to send a quick email with some "How to's" on picking up your summer/fall CSA shares from Noggins Corner Farm in Greenwich. The Shares start next week and we have been busy organizing and prepping for this change in season. We're looking forward to sharing our farm with you for the next 24 weeks!
First welcome to; or welcome back to; the TapRoot CSA, as a member you folks will receive your chosen box of veggies, fruit or meat every week from the first week of July to mid December.
At Noggins in Greenwich you will find your share in the cooler room in the farm market (when you walk into the store you will see it on your right hand side, through the sliding glass doors) A staff person will be more than happy to show you where that is, and it's also important for you folks to meet! Beside (or ontop) of the share boxes there will be a list with your name on it, please check off your name when you pick up your share. This helps us keep track o any left overs. Meat shares (including the meat that is part of your full Monty) and any frozen fruit or vegetables will be in coolers, you are to take your items out of the cooler, please don't take the cooler home with you.
You will be able to pick up your share anytime between Wednesday's at 3:00 pm - Friday at 8:00 pm. If you can't make it in before the weekend you have two options, 1) Call the market 902 542 5515 ext. 1 to see if they have space to hold your share until Saturday, 2) You share will be donated.
Your share comes in a cardboard box, feel free to bring the boxes home, but please return them the following weeks - we reuse these boxes until they've had their fill. Alternatively you could bring a reusable bag and simply take your items out of the box, leaving it for us to pick up later on.
We will post what is in the shares every Friday, you can find the posting on our website.
E-mail is our main thread of communication, however if you ever need/want to give us a call please do: 902 542 3277
And finally we would like to say thank you for choosing us as your farmers! We are looking forward to sharing food with you for the next six months. We also host events on the farm from time to time, and you are always welcome to stop by to say hello, and see where your food is coming from.
Let me know if you need anything else or have any other questions.
