CSA Update :: Rain, Satisfaction Surveys and a Request for Help

Hello Everyone,

Several of you forgot to pick up your containers or perhaps those of you made of sugar didn't want to go out in the rain. [grin] It sure was wet on Tuesday. We got more than 2" of rain at the farm. If you did forget please don't be shy about coming out to the farm and picking up your containers today or tomorrow. Give us a call to make sure someone will be there.

Brad Hinckley 828/406.0849

Aaron Newton 704/305.6654

Your veggies are in a walk in cooler which will keep your food in as good a shape as your refrigerator. Anything not picked up by Saturday will be donated.

This week there were customer surveys in your containers. Several of you mentioned your surveys were soggy. Attached to this email is a PDF copy of the survey. You can print it out and return it next week or mail it to us:

Cold Water Creek Farms

P.O. Box 936

Concord, NC 28026

Finally, this message is from David Goforth at the Cabarrus COUnty Cooperative Extension Office. All of you, CSA members and others are invited to help.

If the weather cooperates we will be covering the high tunnel next Tuesday November 3. This will be a group effort and the more hands we have holding the plastic, the easier life will be. If you have been looking for an excuse to come visit the incubator farm and meet some of the people who are farming out there, this would be a good one. It has been a beautiful week out at the farm with some of the best color I have ever seen on sassafras trees. We will probably be doing some of the preliminary work by 8:15 am if you are wanting to learn the whole process but hope to have hands on the plastic by 8:30. Of course all plans can be shot if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Right now the forecast looks okay but Tuesday is a long way off.
