Planting onions, and much much more!

Planting onions 4/4/13



Ah, sitting back on a nice comfy chair while the tractor pulls you slowly through a picturesque field, all the while planting onions... not as easy as it sounds! Our team has gone up and down, up and down, and up and down many rows, for many hours a day, meticulously planting a single onion (or other transplant) in each pre-made (and watered) hole, and pushing it in the dirt and making sure dirt is snuggled in all around it. Just as back breaking as bending over and planting in your garden! Much more planting to come. Lots of love and labor going into your food, and we couldn't be more excited to get it to your kitchen!

Earth Spring Farm is proud to announce that we have officially (finally!) closed on our new farm!

Farmer Mike bought Earth Spring's initial 8.8-acre farm (which we still own and are using) four years ago, and along with leasing land in addition to this farm, has quickly built up a strong CSA and market farm. Mike's plan was to slowly transition to a larger farm with a house on it (see photo above) so we can continue to expand our CSA Membership, and so he and his family can enjoy living on the farm... the dream has come true!

Mike closed on the farm on the afternoon of March 22nd, and started chisel plowing (1st step to getting the fields ready) on the 23rd. Mike, Julie (Farm Manager), and Fernando (our Brazilian friend back for his 3rd year at ESF) have been busy getting the farm ready, moving equipment, etc. The address is 366 Stought R., Carlisle PA 17015 (about 12 miles from our old farm)... check it out on Google Maps!


Thanks to everyone for their support, especially our members who invested in our farm to help make the farm purchase happen. We promise to deliver the freshest, most delicious produce we can in a couple short months!

Check out the new farm in this VIDEO...
"Hi Everyone - this is a choppy clip from Saturday 3/23/13.  We just closed on our new farm here in Carlisle PA on Friday 3/22 and got to work right away! I will post another (and easier to hear video of a tour of the new farm. - Farmer Mike"

A huge thank you to the eight people who submitted an entry for our Logo Contest. It was very difficult to choose.... We have many talented friends of the farm!

We ended up choosing two of the artists, feeling that they can both be used for different things from the newsletter to the website to t-shirts to signs for marketing to letterheads....and so on. Our final choices were the artwork of Athena Hsieh (above, left) and Jonathan Toonkel (above, right). They will each receive a free CSA box for the 2013 season. Thanks for your hard work!
