3 Things Farm Related

Winter CSA, Farm Concert, & Pizza nights

ONE:

         We have a summer CSA running May to October and a winter CSA running October through May.  This means you could be getting organically raised produce from us year round.  CSA stand for community supported agriculture and it is an agreement between you the consumer and us the farmers, where we agree to provide you a box of produce every week (in the winter we do it every other week).  Interested, please check out https://millsapfarms.wordpress.com/winter-csa-2016-17/ for complete information and to sign up for this coming Winter CSA. We would love to be called “your farmer”wp-1458686409858.jpeg

TWO:

          We are excited to host The Creek Rocks with Cindy Woolf and Mark Bilyeu this Saturday the 24th at 7:00 for an outdoor Farm House Concert. Our whole family adores these two, so we hope you plan to join us. We will be taking a good will donation of $10 per person and a Family price of $50. We will have a few refreshments for sale and feel free to BYOB. Bring your blankets and camp chair to enjoy the music. Want to check them out, listen to this

THREE:

        Pizza nights have been selling out 1-2 weeks in advance.  We are creeping up on the end of our Summer Millsap Farm Pizza Club for 2016.  We would love to see you this next month, and I just wanted to encourage you to get your registration in early.  If we are sold out, just join the wait list and I will do my best to work you in.  https://millsapfarms.wordpress.com/pizza-a-place-to-party/

Winter Shares 2016-17

We are offering a limited number of winter CSA shares again this fall, for sale starting today. Fall and winter crops are looking good this year, with carrots, beets, spinach, chard, kale, lettuce, salad mix, turnips, etc. off to a good start. We focus primarily on greens production in the winter, using row cover, high tunnels, and greenhouses to produce tons of spinach, pac choi, lettuce, and other greens right through the winter. In addition to the greens, the “Roots, Squash and Greens Share” includes storage crops like Sweet Potatoes, Onions, Irish Potatoes, and acorn, butternut, and spaghetti squash, and fresh root crops like turnips, carrots, beets, radishes, etc.  The greens, onions, garlic, and fresh roots are almost entirely grown on our farm, using organic practices. Most of the squash, potatoes, and sweet potatoes are purchased from other farms in Missouri and Arkansas, many of which use conventional practices.  As always, we make every effort to make sure you are informed about where all your food comes from, and how it is raised.

Once again this winter we will be distributing shares every other week, rather than weekly, with a break during January. The first distribution day will be Tuesday October 25, with distributions on November 8&22, December 6&20, February 7&21, March 7&21, April 4&18, and May 2. By reducing the number of distributions, we save you all some driving, reduce the cost of delivery, have more time for on-farm projects, and still provide you with an excellent supply of fresh greens and other veggies. There is a break around the holidays, so we can have a little time off, and because that is part of the time when the harvests tend to get pretty slim.

That makes for 12 boxes of veggies, each intended to last you approximately 2 weeks, for a total of 24 weeks of veggies. Cost for the Winter Squash, Roots and Greens Share will be $27/ week, for a total of $650, with half shares costing $15.80/week ($380) and a 1/4 share, for those who are just wanting to get their feet wet in CSA (sort of a sampler size), for just $10/week($240).  As in past seasons, you can pay this up front for a discount, or make two payments, with 50% due on sign up, and 50% due by the end of January.

The bread share will be one loaf per distribution, so 12 loaves @$5 apiece for the season. The Millsap Girls are our bakers again this winter, and if you tried the bread this summer, you know you don’t want to miss out on the bread share. If you need a loaf per week, then feel free to order two shares, and then stick one in the freezer until you’re ready for it.

As always, we require a 12 hour per season workshare commitment from members, meaning that you come to the farm to help us harvest or weed for 12 hours. We do offer a chance to opt out of the workshare by paying a fee of $100 to offset the loss of labor on the farm. We realize that some people are just too busy, or have other reasons for not committing to a workshare, and we don’t want this to keep anyone from joining the CSA.
