Another week of delicious, crisp, leafy greens, red radishes and garlic scapes – a real delicacy! Please check the farm’s newsletter below to see what will come on Thursday.
Tomorrow we will have our pickup at town hall as usual. We want to thank Caroline and the Meetinghouse for hosting us last week.
We want to thank our volunteers last week for a job well done! It was a little more challenging since the location was moved but you all did a great job!
This week’s volunteers are:
1st shift: Cindy & Anne, site supervisor is Caroline
2nd Shift: Nora & Sue, site supervisor is Judy
Again some important information:
If someone is picking up your “box” on your behalf, we need to know in advance the name of the person picking up, and the first/last name of the person they are picking up for. If you are sharing with someone, you need to let the volunteer at the sign-in table know who your share partner is – their first/last name. The volunteer will write your share partner’s name on a post-it and it will be on the box under the pick-up table.
If you are volunteering this week, it is absolutely essential that you read the volunteer directions below. The directions are different than last year, so even seasoned members need to read them.Even if you are not volunteering this week, it is a good idea to become familiar with them so you understand exactly what’s going on.

Members who have dairy and egg shares will get them this week as usual. While you had to order your share of dairy, eggs and/or meat, if you would like to order anything from Goodale Farm, send us an email and we will arrange it.
No on-site vendor this week. Elisabeth of Sweet William’s Tortes will return this season starting next week – June 21. If you want to put in a pre-advance order, contact Elisabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org
We do plan on having other vendors during the season. Whitestone (Green Earth Urban Gardens) honey, Astor Apiaries will have “tables” to sell their products starting in July and will alternate every month. Tote bags, S & V Jams, and Queens Hot Sauce can be purchased at pick-up. We will have them all season.
Online vendor Lewis Waite
You should have received emails from the online vendor Lewis Waite. Lewis Waite. For those folks who ordered, delivery will be tomorrow. If you would like to order anything from them (these are not shares, but rather individual purchases), please visit their site. The next delivery will be June 21. You order and pay them directly online via Paypal or send them a check. We do not handle payments to Lewis Waite.
Fruit shares will start in July; It all comes down to what’s ready to be harvested at the perfect moment of ripeness. Be ready to be amazed!
Please be sure to sign-up for your volunteer hours if you haven’t already; you should have received an email from SignUp.com; Let us know if you have not. Please – it is important that you honor your volunteer commitment; it is part of the cost of CSA membership. As you know, we are an all-volunteer run organization and we need you to help run the season smoothly so you can enjoy your delicious organic produce and add-on items. If the hours are truly a burden, reach out to the Core Team – maybe you have another skill that could fulfill your commitment.
High School Student Volunteers
We are looking for High School Student volunteers who need to get credit and fulfill their community service requirements. The student must be 16 years of age or older. They will need to volunteer at our weekly pick-ups for the full season – June to November. Our site supervisor will sign their service credit forms every week and will provide a reference letter at the end of the season that the student can use when applying for a job or college. The high school term will soon be finished, so please let your family, friends and neighbors know about this opportunity.
Caroline, Dionne, Emily, John, Judy and Larry
