Summer CSA –

We have are being inundated with new CSA members.  If you are thinking about getting a share this summer, now is a good time to do it.  We’re not entirely sure how many CSA members to take this year, I’m sure it’s as hard a year for you to make decisions as it is for us, but we want to warn you that we may decide to cut off the CSA Shares at some point.  As far as signing up for CSA, there’s no time like the present!

There may be some changes to the program this summer due to this annoying virus, but hopefully it will just be a matter of additional hours and pre-weighed bags.  You will still get an excellent value.

Summer CSA runs from the beginning of June through the beginning of October.  A quick summary is included here, FMI: https://www.laughingstockfarm.com/csa/summer-csa/

Pickups are, at a minimum:
Wednesday – 3 to 6:30 at the farm in Freeport and
                                     in the 4th floor of the parking garage at Drummond Woodsum
Friday – 3 to 6:30 at the farm
Saturday – 9 to noon at the farm

You can pick up any time, either location, and you can change from week to week.  You still get your choice of vegetables, plus peonies, plus pick-your-own flowers and herbs (in season) if you come to the farm.  

Vegetable Shares – (Same as the last few years)
Large – 11 picks – $675
Medium – 9 picks – $565
Small – 7 picks – $450
Extra Small – 5 picks – $335

As always, you can pay half down to reserve your share, and pay the balance at the first pickup.
Payment plans are available, e-mail for more info.  Pay in full to enter the drawings.

Pork Share –

It looks like we will be able to get piglets, fingers crossed.  If we do –

$300 for 30 to 35 lbs. of pork, including bacon, pork chops, country style ribs, Italian sausage, breakfast sausage, and a ham.  Pay half to reserve your share, the second half is due when you pick up the pork.  Sides of pork are also available, e-mail us for details.
