Cedar Grove Farm: Cedar Grove Farm CSA Availability for February 28
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The winter squeeze continues, but we are still hanging on with some tasty veggies. Preparations continue for the spring and summer gardens. We are erecting a new high-tunnel, hoop house that will be planted with early tomatoes and other treats. We have received a shipment of 5000 seeds of a variety of corn that we haven’t grown before, but that comes highly recommended. There will plenty for all this year.
And, for a little business – we are accepting memberships for the 2013 Spring/Summer CSA. If you have an account just let us know that you are coming back. The CSA provides Cedar Grove Farm with the finances to thrive and to deliver a bigger and better product for you. It’s what we love to do.
The market is open. Hope you find something you like.
Regards, Farmer Jay

Conway, AR: Opening Bell
Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,
I think the weather has been the main topic of several of my market opening emails recently, but the weather is so central to a farmer’s thoughts and concerns (one could compare the farmer-weather relationship to that of an investment banker and the variations of the stock market) that I have to mention the recent meteorological activity at Falling Sky Farm. Thursday morning began with wet snow, which turned to sleet as the temperature rose slightly, and then to freezing rain – the ugliest, wettest, most miserable weather possible. The ground became covered in a quarter inch of ice, but animals must be tended nevertheless, and the plight of shivering, huddled choates offered me a crash course in impromptu animal shelter construction. A tarp wired to an aluminum gate leaned against two trees and dry hay spread underneath made the little pigs warm, dry, and happy once again, even if setting it up made me chilled and soggy. Freezing rain is just another factor in the enormous list of adversities that can stand in the way of a farmer’s path to success. Supportive communities like Conway Locally Grown help make it all worth the effort.
So renew your support of the some of the toughest and hardest working people anywhere – your local farmers, and celebrate with me another week of good food grown right by good people. The market is now open. Go to conway.locallygrown.net/market to place your order. Hit the checkout button once when you’re finished, and you will receive a confirmation email once your order has been placed. Thanks and have a warm, dry week!
