Chatfield Farms CSA e-news: August 14 -19
We hope you are ready for another week of bounty! Keep in mind the honey this season is plentiful and we will have several weeks of honey to go around for everyone. They bottle each batch fresh out of the hive so there is a limited amount in the beginning phases.
Shareholder gleaning day (come and harvest your own crops)! Next Sunday, Sep. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. Please bring your own tools and bags. There will be staff onsite to show you which crops can be harvested. There will be signs marking the row you can pick from but please do not pick crops that are not flagged as we are still working with big portions of the field.
Directions to the far fields:
Park in the Visitor Center lot and walk through the park, (you will head through our washstand area and out onto the dirt road. Pass the "staff only" sign past the pond, past the beehives and turn left into the gate.
