CSA Orientation and Open House May 7th!
When -- Sunday May 7th, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Where -- Anchor Run Farm 2578 2nd Street Pike, Wrightstown, PA 18940. Parking is available on site in a large stone lot at the end of the driveway. Importantly, please drive slowly in and out of the farm, there will be plenty of kids, adults, cats, and maybe a dog or two (on a leash) wandering around.
Who Should Attend -- New members who would like to check out the farm and learn more about how our CSA works before the harvest season starts. Returning members who want to spend time with their food community.
Why -- We'll be hosting field tours and pick-up room tours complete with ample time for Q&A sessions with the farmers and the core group members. See what your food looks like before it reaches your kitchen, where your 'u-pick' crops will be this year as well as how the pick-up room and workshifts function. There will be some snacks and light refreshments under the pavilion. So come on out and meet your farmers, mingle with the farm community, and enjoy some long awaited spring excitement!
Schedule of Events -- Field tours on the hour at 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, and 1:00pm. Pick-up room tours on the half hour at 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, and 1:30pm. The Q&A and light refreshments are all on-going.
Can't Make It? - Don't worry; staff or volunteers will be present in the pick-up room for the first two weeks of distribution to help guide new members.
New for us: growing onions in white plastic under hoops and row cover. Why: the white plastic suppresses weeds, is a deterrent to some onion pests, and remains cooler than black plastic. The row cover is used as a barrier to keep the newly arrived allium minor pest away during its spring flight period. We're hopeful that all of this extra effort pays off in higher yields.
