Hey folks, long time no post! Most of you know it’s been a crazy, hectic season so pardon me for being so silent!
Two quick updates for you … First, we have a brief survey for our 2012 CSA customers. We’d like to get a little feedback from you in order to improve our program. Please take a few moments to help us out: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WQ6ZVCW.
Second, we’ve posted sign ups for our 2013 CSA program right here on the website. For information about the program and to download the information, please go to the CSA link.
See you soon!
It’s official! Our small family farm has expanded and, in honor of our fifth year of our CSA program (among other reasons), we have changed our name. NV Ranch is now Wolf Creek Family Farm. So what does that mean for you, our valued customers and friends?
Well, the name change itself doesn’t mean much. But our expansion does. We’ve added another 40 acres to our farm and that additional space is going to allow us for oh-so-many new things. More room to run more livestock – which means having more grass-fed beef, pastured pork and free-range chicken and eggs available for you. It also means the ability to grow a wider variety of produce and add orchards, strawberry beds, asparagus beds and more. We’ve previously either leased property for these things or only had a very limited quantity so we’re excited to be able to get to work.
The ground breaks in March and it will be full speed ahead from there. We also plan on having a late-spring/early summer open house for all our friends to come see the new place, tour the farm and munch on some barbecue – because now we have the room to have you all out at once!
Along with the new name is this new website which will feature something we’ve wanted to provide for a while. Under the Harvest Notes link you’ll find a “Vegepedia” of sorts. It will contain all the types of vegetables we grow, each variety, notes on how to store them and recipes for their use. Plus, you’ll be able to log in and add your own recipes to the database so our customers can share their knowledge with each other. How cool is that? The barebones are there now, but it’s a work in progress. It should be fully updated and functional by May 1st.
We sincerely hope you like the new website and, as always, it will constantly evolve as we go. You’ll also notice this blog is now on the homepage, which will allow us to quickly and easily keep you up-to-date on what’s being planted and, more importantly to you, what’s being harvested each week. As always, please use the Contact Us page to let us know what you think of the new site and give us suggestions for how we can improve.
Here’s to a prosperous start to our new journey together!
Until next time,
