KEY DATES FOR 2014
Notes from Fred: Report back from the Farm Visit
Meet the Farmer
Thursday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m.
50 Jay Street, Brooklyn (Phoenix House)
Fred of Sang Lee Farms will be in town to talk about the farm and the CSA and share some tasty veggies. Join us and learn more about where your CSA deliveries come from.
We haven’t heard an update directly from Sang Lee Farms, but it sounds like they have weathered Hurricane Sandy and are open for business again. We’ll keep you posted as we hear news about how the farm was affected by the storm.
Watermelons are back in season!
Those of you who’ve been CSA members for a few years may know that watermelon is one of Farmer Fred’s favorites:
“This really is the best time of the year for me because……….. the watermelons are ready! Our crop of watermelons is perhaps the most favorite thing on the whole farm for me, (possibly the whole world). It pretty much makes the whole season’s work worthwhile just to munch those guys every chance that I can. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.”
July 4 falls on a Wednesday this year, so we will be moving the pickup to Thursday, July 5. Pickup time will be the same (5-8 p.m.) at the Phoenix House on 50 Jay Street.
Our annual visit to Sang Lee Farms is coming up on Saturday, May 19th.
It’s a great chance to meet Fred and Karen and see where your vegetables come from, not to mention farm tours, gardening skills learning, and live music! Visit the Sang Lee Farms website for more details.
The day at the farm will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., not including travel (around two hours each way).
