Hello from the Farm,
Harvest Season is right around the corner! Your Farmers have been working hard on planting a lot of crops and weeding the fields this spring. The plants are still going strong even with the crazy weather fluctuations!
First Pick Up weekend is predicted to be on June 8, 9, and 10!!!
Strawberries are coming in early this year because of the warmer weather and rain that we are receiving this Spring. This is happening all along the east coast as you can see the strawberry stands are already popping up. We are wanting to send out a warning that our Strawberries might be ready the week before our first pick up weekend. If they would be ready the week before we will send out a newsletter that will state the specifics on when you can harvest strawberries. Just keep a look out for our newsletters in your email inbox for updates.

North Star Orchard Fruit Share
CSA Members have been enjoying the Fruit Share for years, and we encourage you to take a look at what the share has to offer here.
This is not ordinary fruit, but unique and heritage varieties which are full of flavor: plums with pizazz, perfect peaches, amazing Asian pears, great (seedless) grapes, astounding apples, and a sprinkling of heritage pear varieties.
Sign up directly with North Star on their website (link again to https://northstarorchard.com/fruit-share ), or if you need to reach them directly, email Lisa@northstarorchard.com

Hillacres Pride Cheese Share
Goodwill at Homefields farm will be a pickup location for Hillacres Pride Cheese share once again for the 2017 Season.
The share will usually start with the first pick-up at your veggie share location and run every other week for 11 pickups, which usually encompasses June-Oct. A share contains 2 cheese items with each delivery.
They will range from cheddars and colbys to artisan cheeses, such as our Susquehanna and Cave Aged Arcadia; to fresh cheeses like ricotta and our signature flavored fresh cheeses. It is always fun for us to select the share items and we hear it is a fun surprise for the customers. We offer a bit of information about the cheeses and are hoping to incorporate recipes this year as well.
