CSA

Oh, how I long for an Autumn CSA box!

I’ve had some great feedback from folks about CSA this year and am busy with a few ideas. Firstly, I’ve been asked to host a class, if you will, early in the season to show some quick ideas for preparing our produce, as well as freezing and possibly canning techniques. That’s a lot of information to cover, but I think I will gear it toward the wants and interests of the attendees. If you are interested and have any requests, please let me know. I will most likely schedule such a thing in very late June or early July.
We are still working on the gleaning days…more to come on that topic much later in the season.

Well, it’s March folks, so please do take a moment to sign up or at least tell me you are going to sign up so I can ensure your space. You can opt for a CC payment or a check, so, not that we don’t want your money, we mostly want to know you are committed to this season so we can plan appropriately. The escarole is ordered and the potatoes are in transit – so exciting!  Thank you so much if you have already signed up for the summer CSA. I am really liking the new dynamic database we have set up for CSA subscriptions.  There was no way to import our list of members, so the system considers everyone a ‘new member’, but once you have signed in, you can sign in anytime to change your info, make payments, or whatever. No worries, though, I recognize all my returning foodies 😉  As the keeper of the database, I ask that everyone try to subscribe through the new system so that I am sure to have all the correct info and can be the most efficient I can be. Sign up today and think greens!
Thanks!

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
