Greetings from Dancing Hen Farm! Happy Thanksgiving!
There will be no buying club this weekend as we celebrate Thanksgiving and spend time with family. Buying club deliveries will resume next week, with ordering opening, Tuesday, November 29 and deliveries Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3.
It seems winter has arrived in Pennsylvania. That means the rhythm of the farm is also changing to our winter mode. For the most part, other than a few covered beds of greens, our fields have been put to rest until spring. We continue to do projects on farm, but generally our activities center around keeping chickens watered and keeping wood chopped for our wood stove.
Farmer Don and I will again be spending Thanksgiving on farm. We will miss spending time with some of our extended family, but it is always good to avoid the travel rush and enjoy some time together in the kitchen. Our meal will be very traditional, including, of course, turkey and stuffing! I am hoping make pies this afternoon, but if I don't get to them, we will stray a bit from tradition and have apple crisp for desert!
Please watch your email for the opening of our 2017 CSA registration. We will again be offering discounts for returning members and early sign ups. Our CSA will continue to be a full choice CSA, allowing each member to sign onto our website and customize their box each week. In addition to our vegetable shares, we will also offer add on egg and chicken shares. If you have questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Farmer Don and I want to wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful to have such a supportive community!
Time to refill the coffee cup and move onto the next task!
