CSA Day Member email
Hi CSA friends!
On February 24th, we are joining with CSA farmers from across the country to celebrate CSA Day. According to Small Farm Central (a network for small farms), this has been the most popular day of the year in the past to sign up for a CSA share across the United States.
This is an important time of year for us to get new members signed up because we are in the process of planning and making investments in seed and other supplies for a successful harvest in a few months. For meat shares, we must also know how much butchering to schedule with the butcher shop.
Many of you took advantage of our early sign up period and already invested $75 to reserve your membership. This helps us a great deal and we appreciate knowing in advance that you will be enjoying this season with us. We are attaching a "I support a local farmer" graphic that Small Farm Central has prepared for willing members to post to their face book page to help us advertise and to show that eating local and supporting local small business is important to you.
Also attached are the new agreements. We are scheduled to visit with employees at local businesses in the next several weeks and already have both new and past members who have signed up. We will accept agreements through April 1 unless our maximum number is reached prior to that.
Hope to hear from you soon. Please don't hesitate to contact Tim or myself any time. 573-645-3767.
