Spring Update 2017

Transplanting tomatoes in low tunnels

Sunny weather is forecasted for later this week and the Calliope Farm crew is ready for some dry weather for weeding projects and prepping ground for more seeding and transplants. It’s been a productive spring here despite the wet and cold weather. We’ve been able to plant and prep ground in the dry moments, and keep on top of other projects when it’s raining, all the while harvesting for the market and wholesale accounts. Our market table has been full of stored crops, and field crops that bounced back after the cold winter, in addition to the early radishes and salad mix that we planted in January.   

At Calliope Farm we mark the year not only by the meteorological seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter, but also by our CSA and market seasons. April 6th marked the shift from the Saturday-only winter market to the main 4 day per week market season.  In another three weeks, our 2017 CSA season will begin. May 23rd is the first Tuesday pick-up and May 27th is the first Saturday pick-up for our Main Season and Full Season members. Peak Season will begin the first week in July.

Our CSA has room for more members, and you can find more information about share types, pricing, and pick-up locations on our CSA Information page.  New features of our 2017 CSA include, a 3-month Peak Season Share, 10-month Full-Season that now goes into March, a salad mix add-on, and a new pick-up location at The Little General Food Store downtown.

If you have already signed up for a CSA share with us, thank you!! We hope you are looking forward to another year of happy eating.  If you have questions about our CSA, please get in touch via email (calliopefarmoly@gmail.com) or come by our market stall.  

Sincerely,

Jacob, Teva, and the Calliope Farm crew
