It is getting to be that time of year again. With our warm weather, we have already sewn seeds for cool weather crops and are beginning to contemplate this years farm bags. It is no small matter of anxiety for me to begin this process. Above all, I want our recipients to feel that they are receiving value in their bags, and since we have started from scratch three years ago with this process, I feel a little out of water.
Through a friend we found a Wisconsin based CSA called Good Earth Farm, similar to us in that
several years ago they started with a handful of families, and they are
now doing over 500 families a season. Their website is extremely
helpful giving me some framework to visualize how we will be doing
ours. I was heartened to see that when we send a bag home, our volumes
seem to be consistent with what is being sent home in their offerings.
Last year I always put in a little card in the bag highlighting what was
included each week and a helpful tip, but this year I am going to try
my hand at a newsletter for each week. I figure, I blog, I can surly
get a newsletter out!
