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

January 8, 2008

Click here to find the 2008 CSA Membership Form. We're eagerly looking forward to another great year and we hope you'll join us again. Our pick up dates are the same: Mondays from 1-7pm and Fridays from 12-6pm. Our anticipated start date is Friday, May 23. New for 2008: there are a limited amount of memberships available for pick up at the Jenkins Arboretum in Devon on Tuesdays.

You'll notice that we had to raise our fee to $690 for a Family share. This is something we do not take lightly, but we simply cannot run the CSA without the price increase. Labor in particular is costly, especially since we are relying more on our hourly workers. If you compare our price to other CSAs in the area, though, you'll find that we are actually quite reasonable! Remember too that by joining our CSA you are receiving the highest quality vegetables, and supporting local, sustainable agriculture in the process.

In appreciation of your continued support, we are offering a $50 discount to our returning members WHO REGISTER BEFORE FEBRUARY 15! So print out the form and mail it to the farm with your payment, and start dreaming about all the fresh, delicious, nutritious vegetables you'll be receiving!

See you at the farm!

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.
