Maysie's FarmMaysie's Farm Newsletter: Fresh from the Fields
April 2008

April 22, 2008

I am delighted to see that it is only 5 weeks until the first CSA pick-up! The farm is really greening up and it's great to see the vegetable plants growing!

Thanks to all who have joined for the 2008 season, and also thanks to those of you who are referring your family and friends to us. We still do have memberships available, and the form can be downloaded from our website,

This is the LAST CALL for participation in our Growing Families, Growing Gardens workshop scheduled for this Sunday, April 27 from 1-4pm. The cost is $25/family ($30 for nonmembers) and you will learn how to start a garden at home. You will also seed some vegetable and/or flower plants to take home. If you are interested in attending this workshop, you must reply to this email or call Sam by THURSDAY night.

For those of you who order meats and raw milk products from Ben Stoltzfus...there has been a change in his pricing. Some unit prices have gone down BUT he is now adding a 20% delivery charge to every order. I will be updating the website soon to reflect the new prices; when you order remember to figure in the additional fee.

See you (soon) at the farm!

CSA memberships for the 2007 season are going fast! Spread the word about Maysie's Farm to anyone you think may be interested in joining, and register BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

Wish List
Looking to get rid of any of the following items? Maysie's Farm will put them to good use! The first three needs are for our new "office," which is (still) under construction in the old "staff room":

• Wooden file cabinets
• Small electric range/oven
• Sink base, under-counter cabinets, wall cabinets and a short length of countertop material
• Picnic table(s)
• Large outdoor canopy
• Solar powered walkway lights (ideally to match the two donated by Martha Thomae)
• Straw bale chopper (for mulching large areas)
• Assistance building a bio-diesel production system or a compost tea brewing system
• Diesel station wagon or delivery vehicle for use as our produce hauler (for the Farmers Market and our Farm and School partnership) that we could run on bio-diesel or vegetable oil
• Housing for potential Farm Manager
Please contact Sam at (610) 458-8129 if you can donate any of these items.
