Hello Friends of Purple Sol Farm!
After a winter of diesel fume detox, personal restoration, and working winter jobs to make money; I’m finally crawling from my hibernation burrow. Both myself and the farm are gearing up for another year of fun in the sun.
First and foremost, for whatever reason, I was naive enough to think that the property search might go as planned. The end result is that I did not end up finding a permanent home. However, I have crafted some options for a lease for the coming year in the greater Baltimore area. I plan make a decision to sign at the dotted line in the next week or so and be in soil shortly after.
Next: Purple Sol Farm is looking to grow this year (yall remember that all puns are always intended right?). So, tell your friends, neighbors, family, arch-nemises, or whoever. The more the merrier. And who doesn’t want fresh, local, chemical-free produce?
Other changes of note:
- The delivery schedule, and set up, will change this year. I still plan to pack shares, but they will be delivered to communal convenient locations. The areas I plan to deliver to are Cockeysville, Timonium, Towson, Rogers Forge, Homeland, Hampden, and a downtown location as well. Are there any other places that would be more convenient for YOU? Let me know and I’ll see what I can do. My aim is to not make any customer drive more than 10 minutes to their pick-up location. More information will be available soon.
- This year we will have three share options. A full share will contain an average of 8-10 items and be delivered once weekly for 25 weeks. There will be two types of half share. You can either opt for a full share every other week (like last year) OR a half of a share every week averaging 5 items.
- The price will change this year. Full shares are $620 for 25 weeks of produce. A full share every other week (12 weeks of produce) or a half share every week (25 weeks) are both $340.
- The CSA will run from the week of May 25 to the week of Nov 16 – 25 weeks.
So, I know how excited you are right now. As you read, day dreams of robust carrots and hearty greens prance merrily in your head. What do you have to do right now? Just email me to let me know you are interested. I will email out the 2014 CSA agreement form the moment I have a signed lease.
