2011 CSA Announcements

A few announcements for you all. First, the Harmony Ridge 2011 CSA membership is officially full. A BIG thanks to all those supporting the farm. We look forward to a great harvest, to meeting all the new faces and to picking back up where we left off with all you return members. To those still wishing to join, please let me know and I'll add you to our wait list. We may have a few more openings in the near future if we find we can provide more than ample produce. The official delivery start date will be Thursday May 12th (and Friday the 13th). Please send me a quick e-mail reminding me of your delivery location preference.

Delivery schedule will be as follows:
Thursday pick-up at the farm (3835 Bowens Rd., Tobaccoville, NC, 27050) between 5pm and 7:30pm. Please pull into the gravel driveway just West of the paved driveway and proceed to the barn on the right.
Friday's schedule will be as follows: between 10:30 and 11AM at New Planet Yoga, Burke St.,West End
between 11:45AM and 1:15 PM at my parents’ house in the Greenbriar Farms Neighborhood at 3620 Rosebriar Circle, Winston-Salem, 27106

Once again, please send me a quick e-mail reminding me of your delivery location preference! Please also try to pick-up in the same place each week. If you need to make alternate arrangements, give me as much notice as possible. I will have my cell on me when I make deliveries, so feel free to contact me if something comes up (336.467.1052)

In your first box you will find a "Unwanted Vegetables" checklist. Please fill this out and return the following week, so that we will know which items to hold back in your future delivery crates.

As for the crates, you will be issued 2 for the season.
Please return the previous week's empty crate each week so we can trade you the new week's full crate. If you forget, don't despair, we will have some spares.

We use a minimal amount of plastic for packaging, but when we do, we hope that you will rinse it and place it inside your empty crate so we can reuse.

Produce will be washed to the best of our ability before it is placed in your box, but we ask that you wash all produce before consuming.

That's all for now, please let me know of any additional questions or concerns.
