Celebrate National CSA Day and Hear Our Story

We are thinking Spring! Seeds are received and organized. Seed racks are up. Soil is being mixed. Crop plans and field plans and greenhouse plans are being finalized. Ready for Spring 2015.

National CSA Sign-Up Day
Tomorrow, February 28, is National CSA Sign-Up Day. We can't think of a better way to celebrate than, well, to consider joining a CSA!

The thought of all the fresh delicious produce, aromatic herbs and brightly colored flowers of the 2015 CSA season is a great way to get through this last part of winter. If you are already a CSA member, you might even have some of the previous season's produce stocked away in the cupboard or freezer for a little treat of warm summer flavors.

Our farm share program, called Wildwood CSA, is open for a second season and We Are Growing! You can join our farm family and get in on the fun farm experience by downloading an agreement form on the CSA page. Just complete and mail it in along with the payment. Then, look forward to 20 weeks of fresh produce!

Hear Us Speak Around Town
We do get off the farm sometimes! We have been enjoying talking at different community events this winter. About 50 people came out to the Kenan Art Counil last month hear about McCollum Orchards. It was so fun to talk with people who remember the farm in its heyday. We also presented our research on the Cornell Ag Extension Ethnic Vegetable Trials at the Empire State Producers Expo in January.

Don't worry -  you didn't miss us. We have been invited to speak at three upcoming events. Please come hear the story of our historic family farm and our efforts to revive it. We will share interesting facts from the family farm's history in Lockport, some highlights of our efforts to reclaim the old farmland and stately mansion, and share information about the Community Supported Agriculture farm share program for the 2015 season.
