Missed Pick-Ups: No problem. We will keep your share for 5 days in our cooler, which is typically open during business hours, 7 days/week. You can drop by anytime and just grab it. Turn left through the gates at the small blue "282" sign, a ways past Gardner's Supply and across from the Intervale Community Farm. Here is a Google Maps pin. Park at the big, unpainted "Farmer Barn" that is appears soon on your right. If you walk through the large double doors, our cooler is the one closer to the road. CSA shares will be bagged & labeled inside.
AUGUST + SEPTEMBER + OCTOBER
Hello! August - October harvests are so bountiful that we will be picking up until the moment CSA pick-up starts. We are no longer sure in advance what will be included week to week! Thus, Chef Pat will be on hand to answer any questions at pick-up. You can count on tomatoes, corn, onions, and melons in August, with more tomatoes, winter squash, brussel sprouts, celeriac and more starting in the fall. And as always, please let us know if you have any requests!

This week's share will include zucchini, carmen peppers, raspberries, celery, cucumbers, a choice of mesclun or arugula, dill, cauliflower and more! It's amazing what a little sunshine has done for the crops. See you this afternoon!

This week's share will include some beautiful cauliflower, cilantro, lacinato kale or swiss chard, mesclun, mixed herbs, Napa cabbage, and plenty of extras to choose amongst for the holiday weekend ahead!
We've had a very wet & cool spring, so things are growing extra slowly, but we are definitely moving out of the leafy greens season into flowers & fruits! There are green tomatoes on the vine, and the pick-your-own flowers are starting to perk up. Fingers crossed for some sunny, summer-y weather.

Welcome CSA members!
Our first pick-up is tomorrow, June 8, from 4:30 - 7:00pm. We'll have sage, mesclun, arugula, pea shoots, kale, and a variety of potted flowers, tomatoes & herbs to take home. We'll also have Italian bitters like escarole & dandelion available as free choice.
**Next week we are hosting a party at the farm, just after pick-up. Chef Drew Thomas is launching his taco truck Fuego with a suckling pig roast, and DJs Taka from Osaka & Tricky Pat will be spinning tunes from the Pitchfork truck.**
See you tomorrow!
UPDATES FROM THE FIELD - MARCH & APRIL
Hello CSA members, we look forward to seeing you in June! In the meantime, here's an update on the early spring activities at Pitchfork.
It's been a good spring. Yes, it's still a bit chilly, but things are slowly growing. Of course there's alway one exception - this year it's the onions.
UPDATE: OUR 2015 CSA IS FULL.
THANKS EVERYONE, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU
