FRESH GREEN ORGANICS:
IMPORTANT WINTER SEASON UPDATE

Dear CSA customers,

Although we're still in the middle of summer, farmers have been planning for and thinking about winter for months.  During our planning, we have come to the difficult conclusion to not do a winter CSA this year. We know that many of you depend on us for fresh produce year round and we apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.  Our current CSA will go through the end of October.  We are grateful for your loyalty and commitment to sustainable agriculture and hope you stick with us for Spring 2017, so we can bring you another season of our fresh, organic produce!  

But wait!  You don't have to go without micro greens all winter long!  
Are you interested in micro greens over the winter? Please respond to this email with a yes or no and whether you would want every week or every other week. We will continue growing micro greens throughout the winter.  If enough people are interested in receiving weekly (or bi-weekly) micro greens, we would be happy to coordinate a drop-off site in town.   

Why aren't we doing a winter CSA?  There are a few reasons, but the main reason is for the health of the farm.  It is difficult to move all vegetable production inside while maintaining a proper crop rotation that keeps our soil healthy.  Although we have the wonderful geothermal heated greenhouses, the lack of sunlight in the winter means things grow like molasses.  We need extra space for our micro green and herb production to keep up with our wholesale accounts throughout the winter.  To top it all off, we currently don't have the staff to properly manage the difficult task of growing in the winter.  

Even though this was an extremely difficult decision, we know our farm will be better for it.  We hope you understand and we hope that you, as loyal CSA members, reap the rewards that come from caring for our soil and plants!  Again, please let us know if you are interested in continuing a micro green CSA so we can coordinate that.  If you have any questions, please call the office at 541-880-8215 or email us at rick@freshgreenorganics.com.  Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,
the FGO crew
