CSA Week 2 and Ambrosia Farmstand Opening

Busy days are getting busier at Ambrosia. This past week found us preparing the farm to open our gates for the public on June 4th and the rest of the season. Our schedules have already been quite full lately with harvest and processing for two farmers markets plus our CSA. Now that we enter week two of CSA delivery we are so thrilled to have our full share members returning for another round of topped off produce boxes, and our second group of half share members picking up their first round of the season. Harvest each week gets smoother as both Andréa and Brandon are finding their rhythm on the recently established Ambrosia Farmstead. Our knives are silent and ninja swift as we tip toe through tightly spaced crops looking for the perfect heads of broccoli and cauliflower, or kneeling in thanks as we pick strawberries for all of our supporters.

Keeping all of you wonderful members satisfied is our biggest goal this year so we proudly present the following crops in your boxes this go around - 2 Strawberries, Peas, Cauliflower, Green Onions, Salad Turnips, Golden Beets, Spring Lettuce Mix, Pea Shoots,  and Lacinato Kale.

Several locals in the Veneta area stopped by this past week to U-Pick. Starting tomorrow, Saturday June 4th, Ambrosia Farm is officially open to the public. We invite all CSA Members, Facebook Followers, Email Listers, and any Passersby to visit our farm. Andréa will be at the farm and would love to have you come and say hello. U-Pick Strawberries will be available for those that show up early and we have a nice picnic area to enjoy the afternoon.

And this is where the dirt under the nails begins.

We absolutely wish all of you a pleasant week and look forward to seeing our Eugene CSA members at the Crux Rock Climbing Gym this next Tuesday from 4-7pm and our Veneta CSA members on Wednesday for pickup at the Farm between 10am-4pm. Also find us at the Whiteaker Community Market from 4-8pm and the Downtown Veneta Farmers Market from 10am-2pm. Thanks again for your support and enjoy the weekend!
