my sun hat!
i spent the past awful days knitting this hat. hill and hollow farm’s yarn hand dyed by me with our own marigold was just what i needed to cover my head with as the snow turned to rain and back to snow with a spell of sleet and never ending grey skies. yep, i needed some bright farm yellow to remind me that winter does not last forever! with the sun peeking out for the first time in days, i plan to spend the whole day in the greenhouse tending our sprouting signs of spring. this is a good time to remind you all that our early bird re enrollment will end on march 1st. i am going to take a minute to tell you how significant these early bird payments are to the functioning of our farm economy. we purchase all of our seed and supply in the first 3 months of the year: of course this is weeks before we eat a single salad or stir fry. the early season farm income is critical to our sustainability and it is with the deepest appreciation to the many, many of you that have already sent payment and hopes that those of you that haven’t yet made a commitment to a season of eating will do so in these final February days. here is the nitty gritty:
where and when: we deliver each saturday from may through september (20 week main season) to the metro nashville farmers market and remain there from 8 am until noon for you to pick up your share.
what you get: all produce is grown here on the farm with absolutely no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides! we attempt to include as much variety as possible for our locale and include recipes and farm news with each basket. full shares are half bushel baskets, half shares approximately half of that.
pricing: special family share for anyone that wants to eat well and preserve the bounty, this is the share size for you!
$1250 if paid by early bird deadline of march 1, 2016
full share standard CSA half bushel basket, perfect for a couple that cooks a few nights a week or a family.
$1000 if paid by early bird deadline of march 1, 2016
half share perfect for anyone that cooks infrequently but still wants local produce incorporated into their diet.
$500 if paid by early bird deadline of march 1, 2016
not quite full share We designed this option for those half shares that would love that extra head of lettuce or a bigger pile of tomatoes but are not ready to commit to a full share each week. This share size will allow you to get a full share helping of some of your favorite items throughout the season. This was such a success and proving to be our most rapidly growing share size. Try it out.
$750 if paid by early bird deadline of march 1, 2016
payment: we accept personal checks made out to Hill and Hollow CSA and mailed to 8707 Breeding Road Edmonton, KY 42129. we love pay pal if you do too there is a link to pay via pay pal on our website
Please contact me to discuss payment plans and any other questions or comments. we believe no person should be denied access to true food for financial reasons
i know this is a long email, but hopefully you can endure to the end. we are super motivated right now for a great year ahead. we are looking for new shareholders, just a handful. the very best way for us to do this is for you to spread the word to your friends, folks you know enjoy the farmers market, want to eat locally, seasonally and organically. help us spread the word, let us know that you will be joining us for another bountiful year and tell a friend!
with deepest thanks, always,
