We are quickly approaching our 200-member mark, which will close out our CSA Membership for this season.  If you know someone who has been thought about signing up but hasn't yet, or know of someone who may be interested, please encourage them to sign up quickly at www.earthspringcsa.com/members.  We have been taking on new members daily, so we are filling up fast! In one short month you'll be getting a box of fresh produce delivered near your home or work:)

Earth Spring Farm will be making its Washington, DC, farmers market debut this Saturday at the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market.  Stop by the market from 9-1 and say hi to farmer Luke.

Don’t forget to pick up some of our delicious radishes, scallions, herbs, and watercress.  I have been eating the radishes and scallions before a meal by spreading some good butter on them and sprinkling with good sea salt: A french inspired crudités.   You can also thinly slice radishes and place on a buttered piece of crusty bread- just like the French. Our herbal edible bouquets (chives with flowers and chocolate mint) make a great aural centerpiece, and our watercress is perfect for a chilled watercress soup. We will have lots of recipe cards at our table at market.

Planting your own little patch of green in the city?  Be sure to pick up some of our heirloom organic starter plants:  Cherokee purple, sun gold , Valley Girl, Yellow pear and black Krim tomatoes as well as cucumbers .

Besides, we like to put a face to our CSA customers so come by and introduce yourself!

We also still have room in our CSA, but it is filling up quickly:  Get your friends to sign up online for deliveries of local organically grown produce delivered to crestwood each week. http://www.earthspringcsa.com/members

Hope to see you there!

Mike and Diem welcomed their little daughter into the world on May 7th. Sage is excited to be a big sister!

April brought us 7 in. above normal rain, and May has been quite wet too. The water table has been so high that the water is taking considerable time to soak into the ground. It's been tough at times to get equipment into the mushy fields, and with some of the hard rains (1 day last month we had 5 inches in 1 day!) have completely washed away acres of seedings. Such is the life of a farm when you are working wth Mother Nature...

Because things are a little behind, we are pushing the start day of CSA deliveries back 1 week, and will extend the season by 1 week at the end.... thanks for your understanding!

1st day of PA deliveries: Wed., June 15th
1st day of MD/DC deliveries: Thurs., June 16th

Last day of PA deliveries: Wed., October 26th
Last day of MD/DC deliveries: Thurs., October 27th

At Earth Spring Farm we offer a simple way for people to receive fresh, organic produce while supporting a small local family farm. Become a member by buying a share in the farm, and when the produce is ready to pick on our farm, then you will see it in your box that week! Currently we serve the greater Harrisburg area and the Washington, D.C. area.
