2019 CSA Countdown
Ok, we’re super excited that new members are reaching out to us, looking for details for 2019! We just need to do a few things first. . . .
Before we start selling CSA shares, we need to: write a crop plan, order seeds, write a budget, do our taxes, update this website, finish building lakeshorefarmers.org, read some books, go cross country skiing (if we get snow), go to the gym, read more books, make some wontons, rebuild a closet, gut our spare bedroom, replace the engine on the cultivating tractor, go on vacation, decide what changes are going to take place for 2019, and take the cat to the vet.
Basically, we work 70+ hours a week from May 1 to the end of October. It isn’t until New Years that we feel that any real break has occurred, and that we have mentally recovered from an exhausting season. We usually start onions in early Feburary, and that is the beginning of our being tied to the farm for the coming nine months. We will get it done, no worries.
We deliver on Thursdays from mid-June until October 25th – 19 weeks in all. This is a three week extension from last year, and the farm is taking a vacation week August 9th. We currently deliver to Pentwater, Hamlin Lake, Free Soil, Ludington, and Manistee. We offer fully customizable weekly veggie boxes of varying sizes that our members can manage through a simple online platform.
We are always open to new Member pickup locations, whether they are open to the public or private. We request that a site has 5 members to get started, potentially more if the location is off the beaten path. Feel free to contact us with suggestions.
All of our veggie shares are customizable. Each week during the season you will receive an email notification that our webstore has opened. Through the webstore, you can change your share contents to suit your needs.
Changes for returning members: We have gotten rid of the credit system. Yay! That means that when you purchase a share, you will have an account credit in dollars. Each week, your account will be debited with the value of your delivery. Your box size and value can change each week, as you wish. You no longer have to use vacation credits on one special week.
