Know Your Source - In the News


Most of us joined a CSA to know the source of our food and have a direct relationship with the farmer providing that food. There may be other reasons you joined from being part of a community to wanting to support local small farmers to just loving fresh veggies and fruit. Whatever the reason, welcome and enjoy!

Notes From Green Thumb Farm


Greetings from the Farm,

Our deliveries begin this month with our Spring crops of strawberries, lettuces and herbs. Our crops are coming in later than last year because of the cold Spring (especially nights) which made the plants grow more slowly.

In addition to our Spring harvest crops, our tomatoes, beans, squash (of different varieties), beets, carrots, scallions, fennel and chards are all planted and growing well. These will be begin to be ready starting, possibly, by the end of the month or July.
