Winter Cleaning

Lately Ben and I have been focusing
 our energy on getting the barn space cleaned out so we have an interior space to do CSA pick-up come summer... that means sorting through decades of barn accumulation with Mama G (my mom Pauline) and figuring out what we want to throw in the yard sale we plan to have this spring. I'll make sure to let you know when we've set the date. It's going to be the second hand shopping event of the season!

Once this space is organized we hope to find an additional refrigerator (if you know anyone who has one they are trying to get rid of, please let us know!), build some tables, and hang up some of the antique farm signs we've found hidden away in little nooks. Hopefully then it'll feel more like home!

Before we started our winter cleaning, the barn was looking pretty sad...

But now that we've been working on it, it looks a lot better!

In other news, we are in the process of creating our CSA brochure! We plan to have them printed off and available by Valentine's Day, which happens to be the same day as day 1 of the NOFA Winter Conference up at VTC. If you haven't looked at the list of workshops and guest speakers follow the link above. This year's conference is going to be even better than last year! So we hope to see you there!

Okay, back to advertising info... We plan to hang up posters around town at places like Three Bean Cafe and Bethany Church among others. So keep an eye out for us! We'll be offering a regular sized share for families and a smaller share for households of 1-2 people, so hopefully there will be an option for everyone! We'll be taking around 20 CSA members, so make sure to get your order in early to secure your spot! Til then, enjoy the snow!!
