Gearing Up for the Holidays

This is the last week of our 4 week fall CSA and we’ll be featuring turmeric in the shares for the first time. We will also have turmeric for sale at our Farm Stand. Other items coming to shares include purple potatoes, butternut squash, and bunched greens. Thanks for your support of our fall CSA!

Last Call for Thanksgiving Box Pre-Orders!

As we are ONE WEEK from our Thanksgiving Box delivery this is the last call for pre-orders. We will have a few extra boxes on hand for sale at pick up, but the pre-orders is the only way to guarantee your box! Each box is $30, but the value is around $50 so this is an amazing deal!

Deadline to pre-order is FRIDAY NOVEMBER 17th. Sign up here: https://csa.farmigo.com/join/ukcsa/2017Fall

Winter Storage boxes will feature white and purple potatoes, 4-5 different types of winter squash (mix of pumpkin, butternut, acorn, sweet dumpling, and delicata), sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, herbs, baby ginger, brussels sprouts, and garlic.

Fall Greens boxes will feature romaine lettuce heads, spinach, kale, brussels sprouts, romanesco cauliflower, celery, baby ginger, turmeric, garlic, herbs, and winter squash.

A few items we may not be able to include in boxes because quantities are limited — cabbage and broccoli, to name a few. If any of these crops are ready, we will have these “extras” for sale at the Farm Stand.

Pick up is TUESDAY November 21st from 4-6pm on campus by the E.S. Good Barn. We also offer on-farm pick up Tuesday before noon, if you request it. Email us at: uk.csa@uky.edu

Give the Gift of Good Food!

We are also excited to announce that the Organic Farming Unit will now be selling Gift Certificates. Gift Certificates can be applied towards any purchase from the UK CSA program: 2018 CSA share, Farm Stand weekly purchases, or Thanksgiving Boxes.

Gift Certificates can be purchased in person at our distribution site each Thursday from 4-6pm, at the Thanksgiving Box delivery on Tuesday November 21st from 4-6pm, direct from the farm, or by email. Email ordered  gift certificates can be delivered via campus mail or by post for $1.50 S&H fee.

Great stocking stuffer for friends, gift for current students to have wonderful food all summer or winter long, or workplace gift exchanges!
