Make up Tuesday Delivery update

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Good evening all, 

All Tuesday deliveries will arrive tomorrow, Wednesday January 25th. Same time and same location. IF you absolutely can not accommodate this change up, please email Justine at csa@taprootfarms.ca and let her know which other location works for you this week OR if you'd like it to come next week. We are delivering the regular Wednesday delivery tomorrow too, so please let us know as soon as possible your preference if you can not make it. We realize this is annoying but better to be safe we think. 

I am not sure how the weather has turned out in the city, but here Frank was skating in the farm driveway. 

Have a nice evening,

Patricia



CSA Planning 2017

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Happy 2017 from all of us here at TapRoot Farms!

Josh and I (Patricia) are in the throws of planning for the growing season ahead. We have created a tentative plan for what would go into the shares each week. This is to ensure we create a production schedule that has veggies available when we plan to have them available. We haven't shared this before because we don't want you to hold us to it in that it is a plan and it will depend on how storage crops hold up or how early or late the season is or if we do or do not have a big wind storm, etc. etc. We are trusting you will appreciate this. We'd love your feedback on what you'd like to see more of or less of based on what we have outlined here. 

Chickens are raised from May - October. This is because they are pastured (free range). It is too cold the rest of the year to raise them. The chicken inventory will run out later on before we have new chickens in June. We have tried hard to work it out so it will last as long as possible. 

Enjoy reviewing and welcome to a new year of food from the farm.
