Today is On-farm and State College CSA Distribution Day - Week 8 of 22

Posted 7/24/2018 11:09am by Village Acres CSA.

Please swing by this afternoon to pick up your share!

Farm Note:

Wow! Last week we were expressing our gratitude for rain and, while we're hesitant to ever bemoan it, my goodness we've had a lot. Over 10" in the last 48 hours. Debra returned to it after spending 5 days with her mom and sisters in Austin, TX, with 110 degree heat. Simply put, these days we've got to be prepared for extreme weather.

Thankfully, our farming system attempts to work with nature, helping to mitigate some of the risks associated with climate change by building soil with perennial grasses to better absorb flash rain events like this. Still, it's disconcerting when the creek is over its banks. We are grateful, though, for the recharge and we have to believe everything living around us is too!

Stay safe, Hannah

Deb's cell phone number is 717-348-4916 (call or text) if you have questions or send us an email at csa@villageacresfarm.com.

Thanks so much for your support,

Deb

Pickup Locations and Times:

State College Members: State College Pickup is from 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. at the Friends Meeting House, 611 E Prospect Ave., State College, PA 16801.

Your main vegetable share will be in the white Sprinter Van and the sales table and any choices will be on the tables in the grassy area. In case of poor weather, we may move inside (but boxes will still be in the van). When you get to the Friends Meeting, start at the back of the van – one of us will be there eager to help get you orientated to the pick-up process.  We will have a checklist to confirm we have you down for the correct share items and will guide you through the pickup routine.  Egg Shares are typically in crates stacked in a line close to the truck.  You'll get any other directions you may need from starting at the van.
