Welcome to Cosmic Apple's 2017 Community Supported Agriculture Program. We are grateful to be your farmers and begin this season. The spring has been productive and the garden is almost full! Our sow had 6 piglets and we have 2 new calves. The workshares have been hard at work since May 1st and we have a whole new "crop" of employees this year! The farm sheds (Shed Village, as we call it) got a fresh coat of stain, so we are feeling spiffy!
One of the most important things to us is that you know how to use all these veggies you will be getting all season! If you don't know how to use something, ask your site host, or browse our recipe collection. We've been collecting them for a long time and many are tried and true staples! Last year I changed the format of the recipes and they are all in one location. This year I am going to work on getting them organized a bit better. The plan is to add notes based on where the recipes came from which will hopefully make it easier to navigate. Keep sending your favorites in so I can add them to the collection. You can always find them by clicking on the "Recipes" link on the left. Remember to check out the "Just Picked" CSA cooking show for ideas also! Thanks to Arden (from Just Picked) for the photo of young garlic above!
For us this first share is all about getting the first crop of goodies to you! We are working hard to make sure the logistics of getting 240 individuals to the right place for the best veggies happens smoothly! Please let me know if we've made any mistakes and we will get it fixed as quickly as possible.
There is still time to get a Lark's Meadow Cheese or 460 Bread Share. Your site host will have the paperwork if you want to sign up. Our coolers are stocked with Cosmic Beef, Pork and Lifeline cheese. Eggs will be sent over as available.
Help Wanted!: We need 2 site hosts, both on Fridays. One in Jackson and one in Wilson!!! If you know any reliable, timely folks who love veggies send them our way! They will get a half a share for helping out, (or you can get a refund for a half share if you already purchased one!) and they will really help us out!!!!
