Farm News and CSA 9/18/17

Heron Pond News 9/18/17

Funny ways that CSA members and friends of the farm work with us to provide our community with great local food. Last week I got one Facebook message and two emails from shareholders and farm fans that wanted to know when the broccoli was going to come in. It seemed to them about the time that we normally have it. Of course being the farmer in the crowed I said to myself "great we have such dedicated fans, the broccoli will be ready soon but they are jumping the gun for sure." Just to cover our bases we went out to look and low and behold the community knows better then the farmer. We nearly missed the boat! As you will see in your trips to the farm or CSA, the crop is coming in big time. Great looking curd, large heads, make for good eating. Thanks to the folks who reached out! Keep the feedback coming.

In other news this week the farm had it food safety inspection. Heron Pond Farm will be subject to the FSMA rules as they come out this year. To make this process go smoothly we have been involved with CAPS the last two years. Our inspector took the long ride from Vermont to make sure we were following the food safety plan that the folks at CAPS helped us write. Thanks to their help, and the never ending efforts of our wash station guru Shena, Heron Pond is now food safety certified. 
See you this week!
