Your share of the harvest Your share will be ready on this Saturday, Nov. 19. The farmstand will be open from 10 to 5. We are a little harder to reach this time of year and so it is important that you pick up on Saturdays only. The three remaining Saturday pick-up dates for your Fall CSA are: Nov. 19 and Dec. 3 & 17. These last three pick-ups have two weeks between each pickup. email Cat if you have any questions.
Forgotten shares If you have you been forgetting your shares, just let us know when you come next time and we’ll give you extra of everything except the greens.
¡NEW! Farmstand Saturdays The farmstand is open two Saturdays this fall, timed to coincide with the two seasonal feasts: this Saturday, Nov. 19, from 10-5, and again on Dec. 17.

A view from the farm
Soon we’ll have eight varieties of homegrown organic dry beans for sale.
Field notes Will, Jim, John, and some of our dedicated volunteers have been threshing, winnowing, and sorting beans for days. The crop looks very promising! When the beans have finished drying off we’ll have them for sale. Some varieties will be available at our Farmstand Saturdays this Saturday, Nov. 19, and others will be available at the winter farmers markets we’ll be attending.
Sharing the wealth Like most small farmers, we donate a lot of food to our neighbors. This year we were delighted to give a good bounty to Willing Hands in the form of over 6,000 lb of freshly harvested food grown at our volunteer-operated Willing Hands Garden. We are participating in the NOFA winter storage share which will be delivered in time for Thanksgiving to farmers who lost their crops due to flooding from Hurricane Irene. We’ll also be joining other Vermont farmers in sending food and warm clothing items to the Occupy Wall Street encampments in Boston, NYC, and others too if we can. Thanks to our wonderful food storage areas and generous CSA members we have been able to deliver super fresh fall veggies to the Haven every other week.
Get in on the giving If you’d like to get in on all this giving, we will match your donation as best we can. Easy ways to donate: Look for the Haven donation box in the farmstand on Farmstand Saturdays or email Cat to make other arrangements.
