WHEN IS THE CSA?
The Eat Your Greens CSA season runs from the week of May 3rd - December 13th.
During the 33 week season, you will receive 28 shares (schedule for our off-weeks is below)
We are a small operation, and with the pandemic still going strong, we have limited our staff to just 2 full-time workers (Mike and myself).
So - to ensure that all of our members receive the best experience possible - we have decided to intermittently have breaks in our season to catch up on farm planting, cultivating, and other projects.
This also allows our members to have a break, catch up on their share groceries, or to (socially distance) visit the farm!
Week of May 3rd
This is the first box of the season! Filled with spring favorites like kale, spinach , lettuces + more!
Week of June 14th
the beginning of summer is always a busy time on the farm. This week will be filled with planting, cultivating, and catching up on projects.
Week of July 5th
JULY 4TH BREAK
July 4th in the rural Missouri is always a stressful time for our animals. This week will be filled with projects to reduce stress for our birds, fill their houses with fun activities, and to ensure they all stay safely inside their pasture.
Week of August 2nd
MID-SUMMER (LAMMAS DAY) BREAK
Our "2nd spring" planting! we will be getting all of our fall crops planted and getting our soil ready for winter.
Week of September 20th
AUTUMNAL EQUINOX (MABON) / BIRTHDAY BREAK
The end of summer has always been a magical time on the farm.
Since this is both Mike and I's birthday week, we decided to take it off to enjoy the opening of bow season and to go on some of our favorite hikes before the cold weather and fall farming duties set in.
Week of November 8th
SAMHAIN/ MID-AUTUMN BREAK
Garlic going in the ground, winterizing chicken houses, performing routine maintenance on all of our equipment before being stored for the cold weather season. This is an especially important break that we take before the holiday season and the persephone period (when day length goes below 10 hours).
