Turkey Hill CSA Newsletter – Week 13/14

Notes From the Farm

As things wind down this fall on the farm, my newsletters will become less frequent. This one covers last week (13) and this week (14). I’ll send another in a week or two. The boxes are packed full these days, but will diminsh over the next few weeks, my box summary at the end covers the next few weeks.
Last delivery day coming soon: the last farm pickup day will be Oct 2, the last delivery date for cb/gunnison will be Sun Oct. 4th. This last week we will deliver a big box, enough to last several weeks. Its possible that if the freeze holds off long enough we may go one extra week, watch this newsletter for details!

 

Trouble on the road

Last week (week 12) was a tough one for our delivery! The farm truck died outside crested butte with a dead transmission, and the produce arrived late to the delivery spot. One box was lost during the transfer to a new vehicle, and we wound up towing the truck to the shop for repairs. At least nobody was hurt and it looks like the truck will be ready in time for this weeks delivery, thanks to Lara for covering the last delivery in her own vehicle.
