00d5 We admire your endurance because 00d5 it’s taken us a little 00d5 bit extra time than normal 00d5 to determine what our farm 00d5 and CSA program will appear 00d5 to be for the approaching 00d5 yr. 00d5 One of many farm parcels 00d5 we have been renting for 00d5 over a decade was offered 00d5 on the finish of 2021, 00d5 which implies that we are 00d5 going to now be farming 00d5 on a bit lower than 00d5 1/2 of the land we 00d5 have had in manufacturing all 00d5 these years. Typically issues occur 00d5 for a motive, and this 00d5 has definitely given us the 00d5 chance to rethink our plans 00d5 for the farm and our 00d5 household. 00d5 After farming at full throttle 00d5 for the previous 28 years, 00d5 we’re able to restructure the 00d5 farm with a little bit 00d5 extra emphasis on a wholesome 00d5 work-life steadiness. 00d5 We have missed lots of 00d5 household time with our two 00d5 boys and that is time 00d5 we simply cannot get again. 00d5 Hopefully that is only a 00d5 short-term downsizing!

We have 00d5 needed to make the troublesome 00d5 choice to shut some pick-up 00d5 areas, however we have tried 00d5 to maintain the websites unfold 00d5 out evenly throughout Lengthy Island 00d5 in order that we are 00d5 able to attain as a 00d5 lot of your communities as 00d5 doable. 00d5 Please observe that we have 00d5 now switched pick-up days and 00d5 instances for some areas. 00d5 You possibly can preview the 00d5 2022 CSA Choose-up websites on 00d5 our web site now. 00d5
