Fall 2019 CCF Newsletter
Unfortunately, September is our last full month of weekly CSA distributions. If all goes by plan, the last share distribution will occur the first week of October. This would put us at our seasonal goal of running 18 weeks with the CSA program. Don't worry, we will be back next year!

On another note, as we continue with the CSA distributions and deliveries, we're working to "shut down" the gardens for the off season. This means pulling and composting old plants and planting cover crops in the outdoor gardens. This is important as it rejuvenates our fields and gets them ready for their next growing season. To add to this, we are asking our shareholders to bring us your composted food scraps! We would love to add this waste to our gardens to help them grow strong and healthy again. Check out one of our latest blog posts titled. "Wait, Save the Scraps!"

Additionally, we have a second batch of meat birds (Cornish Cross chickens) that should hit market weight around the end of October. If interested in a meat chicken, let us know ASAP! Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Anyways, that is all for now. Wishing everyone good health and a happy September!
