Salad burgers. 😁 Meat-free. #willowsfordfarm #CSA
Thanks for the yummy early CSA share. Great chicken and veggies tonight.
Are the eggs that were available starting today already sold out??
Every ingredient is from this week’s winter CSA: eggs, spinach, potatoes and green onions. Yum!
If you are supposed to pick up a CSA share but you completely space out and forget to get it on your given day/time... have you forfeited your share for that week? πŸ˜¬πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™ˆ
Hi! My husband forgot to ask what the adventurous eater veggie is for this week? Not sure what it is and what you do with it? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Not sure if it’s posted somewhere, I have not been able to find it!
Searching for a tomato sauce recipe to mow down this week's share!
All veg from willowsford farm and wiffletree farm hamburger! Had to outsource the cheese to Wegmans.

Conservancy tent is blowing around the farm stand area. Who can I contact to get it taken in???
We are newcomers here in Willowsford. What are your hours today and tomorrow? Thanks!
The foster babies are growing up quickly. Gumby is already showing off her yoga skills for yoga on the farm @ Willowsford.
I have not seen what the farm stand days and hours will be for 2019. Same as last year? Also, can we still get debit cards with discounts?

Farmer Rachel is our greenhouse lead and is excited to be growing some new allium varieties on the Farm this season! Shallots, leeks, and cipollini onions were recently seeded and we can already smell them sautΓ©ing with some fresh thyme πŸ€€πŸ§…

We're excited to have Nick from Apex Organix, a veteran-owned business, at our Meet the Farmer this evening!

As a consumer, a great and easy way to make positive shifts in our local food system is through composting. That's why we're teaming up with Apex Organix this season so our community can help build more resilient soil on the farm. Transforming food and other organic waste into nutritious organic matter helps cut down on our personal food waste and helps build the Farm's healthy soil - it's a win-win!

We're looking forward to seeing you all tonight! If you're not registered, we still have a few spots available! https://willowsfordconservancy.org/programs/events/event/meet-the-farmer/

Farming in the Winter Part 1! 🌱

Farming in the Winter Part 1! 🌱

We may not be growing vegetables at this time of the year, but there's still plenty to be done! We have to make sure our land, our equipment, and our plans are in proper order!

Farmers have to wear lots of hats to pull off a successful business🎩 We're lucky to have a skillful and knowledgeable Farm team that can grow delicious vegetables AND do the jobs that are typically unseen πŸ‘€

We're excited to bring you all delicious produce when May rolls around! If you haven't signed up for our CSA yet, you can register on our website willowsfordconservancy.org/farm

Until then, we'll keep working hard πŸ’ͺ

Eat well, be well!

Winter CSA is done and the crew is diving into 2022! Their lives are currently filled with crop and field planning spreadsheets. Farming is hard work, both on and off the fields - luckily we have a passionate crew that loves what they do!πŸ’»

One of our goals for 2022 is for the Farm to collaborate more with the @willowsford_kitchen ! πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘©β€πŸ³πŸ‘©β€πŸ³

We love seeing our teams work together!

Our fence line is covered in so many large plants and invasives that they require a chainsaw for removal. Taryn and Rob from the Land Stewardship recently visited the Farm to teach our Farm crew proper chainsaw safety and technique.

Talk about teamwork! 🀝

The entire Conservancy team was brought up to speed on the latest CPR and First Aid information. With all of the events we're planning for our community this year, it's essential our team knows what to do in case of an emergency! β›‘

01/25/2022

It's a (slightly) warmer day here on the farm so it's a perfect time time harvest our braising greens from the tunnels! πŸŒΏβ˜€οΈ Check out what's happening on the farm with farmers Andy and Eric!

The winter cleaning continues! Eric and Ben are washing carrots for our last week of winter CSA share while Rachel is cleaning up the greenhouse and getting ready to seed! It's an exciting time on the farm 🀩

We're clearing our deer fence around the farm to help with the pest control. Here is our Farm Production Manager, Eric, to explain why.

It's great seeing the progress being made 😁

Even though it hasn't been the coldest the past few days, our spinach is extremely sweet πŸ˜‹ one of our favorite spinach recipes is @kenjilopezalt creamed spinach recipe on @seriouseats

Happy Holidays from the Willowsford Conservancy Team!

Wishing you joy, peace, good health, and happiness in the New Year ahead!

12/21/2021

Ever wonder why our carrots are so much sweeter in the winter?

It's a natural self defense mechanism for the carrots. In order to defend itself from ice crystal formations when it frosts, the carrot (and several other hearty root vegetables) converts its starches into sugars - in other words, the freezing point of the water in the carrot becomes lower.

That's why we're keeping these Bolero carrots in the ground for as long as possible, because these frosty nights make them that much sweeter. That way, our CSA members can enjoy more delicious produce πŸ˜‹πŸ₯•

12/20/2021

As we move into the new year, our Conservancy is going through transitions to have the Land Stewardship and Farm teams work more collaboratively. So you'll be seeing more content of both teams!

Our Land Stewardship team is currently working hard to finish up their work orders for tree removal before the end of the year. Here is our Land Stewardship Manager, Taryn, watching over Rob as he gets field experience to become an arboristπŸŒ³πŸ‚

12/17/2021

Every day, before the crew leaves, we make sure we check the hens to make sure they have enough food, water, and that the electric fence is functioning properly.

Since we received these hens, there has always been the same rogue hen that craftily jumps from the ramp to the nesting box and over the electrified fence. At closing time she scurries to the crew member responsible for tucking them in who then reunites her with the flock.

We love all of our hens but this one has a special place in our hearts πŸ’•

12/15/2021

It takes a village to make a farm run smoothly, and often it is the folks running things in the background that go unnoticed. Today we say goodbye to Jamie McArdle, the Willowsford Conservancy business manager who has been with us for 7+ years. Thank you for your time, energy and dedication, Jamie, you will be missed!
