CSA Day & the Farmstead 5K

p1120446

lots of snow!  come romp around with us this Saturday at the Farmstead 5K!  

CSA Day is this Friday!  What’s CSA Day, you ask?

It’s a national day of CSA sign-ups (and we didn’t even make this up!)

But before we get into that, we’re so excited to share this short video of Good Heart: Welcome to Good Heart Farmstead Please do share it with your friends!

And now back to CSA Day: Sponsored by Small Farm Central, an organization that pulled together reams of CSA data and found that late February is nationally the most popular time for folks to sign up for a CSA share, CSA Day is designed to jump-start the season and celebrate local food.

So we’re joining thousands of CSA farms across the country and celebrating CSA this Friday.

And, as a thank-you for celebrating CSA day with us, we’re giving a $10 Farm Stand coupon to everyone who signs up for a CSA this week.  This includes shares that are paid in full and with a payment plan (yes, CSA day is technically on Friday, but we’re spreading out the love all week long!)

To end the week, we’re hosting the 5th Annual Farmstead 5K:

a snowshoe romp through the forest to raise money for the NOFA-VT Farm Share Program.  We’ll have wood-fired pizza, soup, cider, a bonfire, and raffle prizes!  Join us Saturday: 10:00-1:00 @Good Heart Farmstead

Sliding scale suggested donation of $5-$20: All proceeds will benefit theNOFA-VT Farm Share Program, which matches each dollar we raise to subsidize CSA shares for families in our community who otherwise would not be able to afford fresh, local food.

We so look forward to seeing you again come June and CSA pick-up time! Until then, we hope to see you at the Farmstead 5k.  Thanks for your support in making local food more accessible!

In Good Heart,
Kate and Edge
