Week 11, Tuesday August 17

Don't Forget! Mark Your Calendars!

We are planning to have our annual Fall Farm Festival!

Saturday, September 4th. 11:30 am - 3:00 pm 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds NY 12451 It is a great day to come to the farm and see how your vegetables are grown, meet your farmers, walk the fields and enjoy a hayride. We have the grill hot and will have pulled pork, vegetarian chili as well as grilled Sweet Corn. We will also provide fresh fruit, water, and hot coffee. In the past, we had big pot luck but we will not be offering this due to covid, we feel it's best for everyone to please bring their own sides if you would like to go with the BBQ offerings. (just for your family) Also, please bring your table settings (plate, forks, napkins) We will have our pick your own flower patch available that day. Bring a pair of scissors and enjoy the bounty of the flower garden.

We will follow the most current CDC guidelines the day of the event.

Dear CSA Members,

Here on the farm, we have been working early and shorter days to beat the heat. We have been planting, seeding, harvesting, weeding. Day after day! August is a busy month! We are very thankful to have the semi-normal summer weather return.

This week you will be getting the popular Shishito snacking pepper. And, here is interesting information I read since I heard some members last year saying they were spicy... "Shishitos are small, mild peppers from Japan. Their flavor is sweet and slightly smokey, not spicy—but careful! One in ten shishito peppers will be hot" - OLDWAYS

Also, Please send back any boxes, or green cartons to your CSA site (if your site allows, please double-check with them at pickup) we love to reuse as much as we can, and we are having to deal with packing supply shortages so it is really helpful for us to get back bags, and boxes. THANK YOU!

Enjoy the harvest! Candice for Everyone at Stoneledge Farm
