This Friday, February 26th, is national CSA sign up day! This date is the most popular day of the year for CSA sign up’s across the country and is a day to celebrate CSA farms like ours! CSA’s are a way for you to pledge your commitment to our farm and help ensure we have a successful season with the seeds, tools, and farm upgrades that we need to purchase this spring.
26th Street Farm is offering a variety of CSA shares this year including traditional 10 or 20 week Wednesday night vegetable and herb shares, bulk flower buckets and bouquet shares, and our farmers’ market card shares. Each share is designed to give you a bonus incentive for investing in our farm. You can read all about these different shares and register for one by visiting this part of our website: http://www.26thstreetfarm.com/csasignupforms
In celebration of CSA sign up day, we are running a promotion to encourage you to get your CSA sign ups in! Each person who registers for one of our CSA programs by this Friday will be entered into our CSA day giveaway drawing. Registrations must be postmarked on or before Friday, February 26th to be included in our giveaway contest. Registrations already received for this season will also be included in the drawing. We will announce winners the middle of next week!

1 Dozen Farm Fresh Eggs (2 winners)
1 lb 26th Street Farm Raw Honey with 1 container Bee Balm (2 winners)

Our CSA shares are filling up nicely. Thank you everyone for the support. We have a few spots left so if you are thinking of joining send in your form soon!
2015 will be a very different year at 26th Street Farm. Will is no longer working full time at the farm and Hannah is operating the CSA production on her own. As you know farming can be very physically and mentally draining, and sometimes its best to give yourself a break. He is still actively pursuing beekeeping and will still be around the farm so you will probably still see him occasionally!. Due to this change, our CSA program will be slightly smaller this year as Hannah adapts the program to work for her as a solo female farmer.
Again, thank you for the support and believing in our little 26th street farm.
We will be hosting a one time fall market at the farm this Thursday from 5:00-7:00 to clear out the last of our produce from our 2014 fields. The following items will be available and the pricing is as follows:
If you would like to preorder to make sure you receive all the items you want (and help us plan what we need to harvest) you can email us your order to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is not required; feel free to come out and choose what you’d like at the market.
