Fox Creek Farm CSA share add-ons
We've been listening to you. We found some great local producers we are collaborating with for the 2022 season!
Expand your local food experience with our new CSA share ad-ons:
The fruit share: ECO-Certified apples from Indian Ladder Farms in Voorheesville. The apple share will be added to your produce share starting the last week of August to the end of the season, for 9 weeks total. Expect a 1/2 peck of apples per week - and let the orchard surprise you for the varieties offered.
The egg share: You'll be hard pressed finding eggs as beautiful as the ones from King Creek Farms in Delanson. Their chickens are out on pasture, and are fed organic feed. The egg share adds 1 dozen of eggs per week to you delivery for the duration of the CSA season. Limited number of shares available: first come, first served!
The honey and maple share: Up for something sweet? Add the maple and honey share. Over the 5 month harvest season, we'll deliver 3 times 1 lbs. of honey, and 2 times 1 pint of maple syrup. All produced by Mickle Hollow Farm in Warnerville, the same farm who keeps the bees going at Fox Creek Farm!
Sign up for the add-ons on our website. Complete the (updated) membership form and return it to us by mail, or add the add-ons online. If you already have purchased a CSA share for the 2022 season, select "Already a member" as the first step!
What started as a homeschool project, is now an annual returning event: Johanna's Plant Sale.
If you grow up in the greenhouse and on the farm, you know a thing or two about growing great garden transplants. Over the years, the receipts of Johanna's sale have helped her pay for her horseback riding lessons. It also paid for Bob, her haflinger pony, as well as the recurring feed and vet bills.
Pre-order now for pick-up at the farm the weekend of May 21-22, so your plants can go right in your garden!
