Okay, so this post is getting out a bit late.  As usual, Brandon and I have been busy bees buzzing about with all our farm chores all while getting the farm tidied up as best we can for our Fall Harvest Potluck.  For those of you who made it out to our little gathering on Saturday, we give our sincere appreciation for joining our Ambrosia family and sharing good food and good company.  Did I say "good food?"  I mean "what an AMAZING spread of food."  Everything was so tasty and colorful.  Thank you all for your contributions. 

Unfortunately, two of the three band members were not able to make it out do to sickness so we got to enjoy in more conversations rather than dancing.  It was such a treat to get to know some of our CSA members better and meet new friends.  Some old time friends of mine from other areas in Oregon made it out for the gathering and that was a very special treat. Wish I had some pictures to share but I was so busy visiting with everyone I never even thought about photos.

Our Harvest Gathering marks the end of our farmstand and u-pick being open to the public.  It was a good run and we welcome the break.  You can still buy produce from us at the Downtown Veneta Farmer's Market on Saturday's from 10am -2pm through the end of October.  We've had some folks still inquiring about our Fall Extended Season CSA but we are no longer accepting any more members this year.  We have filled our quota for the season.  We have learned much about yield and planting size this first year farming at Ambrosia and do plan on doubling our CSA size for the 2017 growing season.  If you are interested in signing up next year, contact us early in the spring to ensure your membership, but we'll let you know more about sign up when the time comes.

Happy Fall Everyone!
