PYO Flowers, Peas & Herbs this Summer!

Hello all!

It’s raining now, but did you see next week’s forecast?  Sun!  And 70º on Monday!  The seedlings are popping up and we’re already blooming inside 🙂

Speaking of blooming…I’m really excited about this year’s PYO flower plot.  We’ve got a few new beautiful varieties that I know you’ll love. We’re expanding the space for more flowers, too.

Even though they’re not a main crop for us (or one we even sell), the flowers are one of my favorite parts of the farm.  Maybe it’s because they’re an extra that I love them so much.  Because we all need something we grow or do just because it brings us joy.

Growing up, my mom always had a fresh bouquet or two (or three) in the house.  Thanks to her, I find both beauty and comfort in flowers.  They may not feed me, but they are a necessity.

SO, I’m looking forward to the summer and opening up the you-pick flower plot.  One of my favorite parts of CSA pick-up on the farm is seeing the bouquets you make each week.

You can fill your house with flowers this summer when you renew your CSA membership.

The CSA sign-up deadline is May 1st.  

Along with PYO flowers, we’re adding snap peas and herbs to the PYO options!

PYO will be open weekdays from 3:00-6:00, during CSA pick-up on Fridays from 3:00-7:00, and Saturday from 10:00-2:00.

We have some more exciting news:

We’ve just been approved to accept SNAP EBT benefits for the CSA.

SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) assists limited-income Vermonters by providing supplemental income for food each month.

This is a big step in our mission of making local food accessible to limited-income Vermonters.  

If you receive SNAP benefits and would like to use them to purchase a CSA share, please email us for more information.  We so look forward to being able to serve our community in a bigger way thanks to this program.

In Good Heart,
Kate and Edge
