2022 farm season is fast approaching! I am already deep in the planning now for everything to come next season. This is a helpful time for the farm to have your deposits secured, 2022 CSA Deposits, this gives a cushion for all the overhead that comes at the beginning of a farm season.
What’s the BIG NEWS IN 2022?
I’m super excited to announce we will continue the weekly sack of mixed veggies next summer in the CSA Farmshare! Thank you for all your reviews, we are grateful you are enjoying our offerings. Additionally, we are adding more greenhouse space, which allows for a greater diversity of early and late season crops, plus more hot weather favorites like tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, and peppers!
🥁 Wait, it gets better! We are continuing to offer a pastured meats CSA option from our friends at Bent Gate Farms! Yes, you can get a meat share AND a vegetable share for a more complete local diet! Check out Bent Gate Farms here.
How does that work you ask?
Here are the basic details.
Veggies you pick up every week, on Wednesdays.
Meat pickups happen three dates during the season
Pickup locations include; at Chi’s Farm in Sequim, a pickup point in Port Angeles, and pick up points in Kingston and Poulsbo.
During the main season, CHI’S FARM provides a total of 20 weeks of produce, from early June to late October. We offer two sizes of shares.
- Large share members receive a one pound bag of salad mix weekly plus about 4 or 5 additional vegetables.
- Sweetheart share members receive a half pound bag of salad mix weekly plus about 3 additional vegetables.
The contents of our salad mix will vary with the season, with a foundation of fabulous baby lettuces combined with lots color and texture added from other complimentary greens. The other vegetables will also vary, but mostly are the more well known, popular items (sorry, no sunchokes or kohlrabi).
Additionally, we will have a 6 week spring season that is mostly salad mix, with a couple of other early season items each week. Sign up for Spring CSA will be available early 2022.
The plan for next season will look similar to the one last year, which is to say we will continue to expand upon the awesome salad mix we grew last year, as well as including a mix of favorite, “common” vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, zucchini, etc. We try to mix it up, but also keep the most often requested items regularly appearing when they are in season. So, if you want to be sure you can get first dibs on those amazing greens and other delicious vegetables, you should put your deposit down for the summer CSA. Soon.
Everybody who ate them last season loved them, and I’m worried there will be a huge rush to get them this season and I might run out. Put down your $25 deposit or if you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
