Farm News

Who thought we would be digging out from 24 inches of snow just after Thanksgiving? Great weather to stay close to the woodstove, coffee close at hand,  and review the last season's farm notes. Or to be out on the tractor to keep our 3/4 mile driveway open. All farm work - but oh so different!

But despite the early onset of the real wintry weather, the early CSA sign-ups for 2020 are comparable to previous years - which is a big relief for your farmers. Because while farming is an honest and fulfilling occupation, we would not be able to farm without having the opportunity to sell the fruits of our labor!

That said, we are enjoying the seasonal slow-down. It's nice to have the opportunity to spend some more time with family and friends on those short days surrounding the winter solstice. To bring in a nice looking spruce, pine or fir tree. And to enjoy the holidays.

We're wishing you and your family good holidays, and all the best for the new year!

Your farmers,

Raymond and Sara

Fox Creek Farm CSA, 2019 in pictures, cannot go without this outstanding picture of our fall beets. Hardly any weeds, and an almost perfect stand. That's something to be proud of, even after 16 years of CSA farming!
The U-pick at the farm was well visited. Did you had a chance to make your bouquet?
For the last 4 seasons, Richard has been one of our key farm workers - together with Barryton, Susannah, and Karin he makes sure that only our best produce goes out to our CSA membership! 
Getting a feeling for farm work: our garlic harvest work party was another success!
Bunching early season radishes.
There's something to say for hand-picked, right-of-the-farm sweet corn. We did pretty good this season!
Early sunrise and late season fog at Fox Creek Farm - this picture reminds us how fortunate we are that we are working and living on this beautiful place - and that we can share the beauty of our farm with all of you!
Nice crops = happy farmer = happy CSA members. It's that simple.
And for once Sara agrees: Nice crops = happy farmer = happy CSA members. Pretty simple!

Site search update

After some rough starts setting up a 2020 CSA site in Schenectady, we are excited to let you know that we are now pretty close in securing a new location. 

The prospective new site is less than 2 miles from our Parkwood Boulevard location. We expect to know more by early January - and if it all works out, Fox Creek Farm will be at another fabulous site!

Did you renew your Fox Creek Farm CSA share already?

We got pretty close to our 150 member goal that we set for the end of November -- thank you! 

If you have not renewed your CSA share yet, we like to remind you that our early full payment discount & check payment discounts are still in place. Together that can add up to almost $ 30!

Graphic Design Help wanted

We are looking to make some changes to our Fox Creek Farm logo. Johanna and Raymond are looking for someone who could take their concept and put it in such a format that we can use the logo for printing shirts etc.

If you have some graphic design experience and can give us some help, please let us know!

Thank you for your support of our family farm!

We pride ourselves in providing our CSA members with an experience that exceeds your expectations. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any of your questions or concerns regarding the farm.
