A new year. 2016. The year of the fire monkey according to the Chinese calendar. An election year here at home. Most likely a drought year due to El Nino. Who knows? We trust that the sun will rise tomorrow. We trust that spring will come again. We’ll plant our garden. We hope you join us for the fun of it, for the health of it.
This is our 21st year! This year will be different. We are extending our season to include 4 extra weeks at the beginning. We expect the asparagus to be ready in May, along with rhubarb, sorrel, spinach and mint. Therefore, the projected start date is Saturday, May 14th. That will also be the Member Farm Tour and Potluck. Harvests will thereafter be on Thursday mornings. The last harvest date will be October 20th. The cost of a share has risen to include these early vegetables. Shares are $425 for 24 weeks. A great deal, averaging less that $18/week. Working shares are available for those who can contribute 15 hours during the course of the season by coming 5 times for 3 hours. Working shares are $350. Although early season share bags are light, with only a few different vegetables and fruits, by mid-summer, the bags are heavy with produce. The biggest complaint we hear is that we give too many vegetables.
To reserve your share, send a deposit of at least half the amount. Checks should be made out to Robin Mallor and sent to Three Roods Farm/ 4281 Our Acres Drive/Columbiaville 48421. Call or email with any questions or concerns. firstname.lastname@example.org. 810-793-2511 (this is a land line)
