Posted 5/29/2018 2:50pm by John and Aimee Good.


 %%user-firstname%% ,

Welcome to the start of the 2018 CSA harvest season! Please read the CSA pickup instructions below thoroughly, so you know what to do next week!

Your first CSA pickup is Tuesday June 5th at the farm, between the hours of 1pm and 6 pm. We ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to closing, if possible, to allow time to gather your share. The farm address is:

8112 Church Road

Germansville PA 18053

*Please note, if using GPS, it will take you about 1/2 mile down the road. Please watch the mailbox numbers to find us.

Driveway/Parking Instructions: At the turn onto our driveway, you will cross a small drainage ditch. Please be careful when crossing. Only one car can cross this at a time! Our driveway is long and narrow. If two cars need to pass, please use the grass lanes on either side of the drive as pull-off areas. Main parking is in the gravel lot directly in front of the barn. Extra parking is in the grass lot across the driveway from the barn, directly in front of the Upick garden.

Pickup Instructions: Please enter barn through the side door. Please check off next to your name on the "sign-in sheet" every week you pick up your share. Your share members are  %%member-label%%. If this is a shared membership, you must alternate weekly pickups or meet at the farm at the same time to split your share weekly.

Your share types for 2018 season are: %%member-types-text%%. We will have sign-in sheets for all "extra shares" which must be checked off before pickup, if applicable. (We will also take signups for extra shares, including bread, eggs, fruit and cheese, the first two weeks of CSA pickup. You can sample products and sign up in the barn!)

All the vegetables will be in the barn, with signs indicating the amount each share size is allowed to take. Scales are available for weighing produce where required. We ask that members bring their own bags and/or containers to take home their produce each week. We do have a box of extra bags available for those who forget, and you can bring your extra plastic bags here for other members to re-use.

Our wonderful CSA helper Heidi Cooper will be on hand to help you and answer any questions!

The Upick garden will be open soon with berries, peas and herbs - watch your emails and the Upick board in the barn!

Extra products will be available for purchase by members in the CSA pickup barn, all local and naturally raised: Good Farm salsa, pasta sauce, and ketchup; local honey, eggs, bread, cheeses, yogurts, and grassfed beef, Wild Alaskan salmon, and more! Cash or check only.

Please Note! The Good Farm is a working family farm. For the safety of all, we ask that members and their children stay within the barn area and Upick gardens, and that dogs be on a leash at all times.  Members are welcome to walk the fields by request. Thank you!

Member updates: Please keep an eye on your inbox every week for the harvest update. You will receive a weekly email, beginning next Monday evening, with a list of the vegetables which will be in your share, as well as storage and cooking tips, recipe ideas, and news from the farm.

 

Thanks! We look forward to seeing you all next week!

First vegetables will include lettuce mix, spinach, bok choy, kale, Hakurei turnips or radishes, and possibly scallions.  Berries may be ready to U- pick! Can't wait!
