Over the past few months, we have been working on bringing a handful of new farms on to HarvestHand. A formal introduction has been long overdue, and in the next few posts I'll be introducing each.
It has been a pleasure working closely with Tim Livingstone of the newly minted Strawberry Hill Farm to get their CSA operation up on the Internet. Tim, Kristen and family took up residence on the farm the summer of 2011, and have been working diligently to launch their box program this coming summer.
Tim and Kristen are experienced growers. Both have many years experience in the greenhouse industry. More recently, Tim was the grower for Jolly Roger's outdoor vegetables and was heavily involved in running their weekly box program. Now at their new family farm, they have been working on getting it up and running and are in the process of achieving organic certification. You can listen to a CBC interview with Tim where he talks about the ins and outs of setting the farm up.
The Livingstone's farm is located in Pembroke, New Brunswick, and will offer CSA pickup options at the farm, Fredericton, Woodstock, and Hartland. They are currently offering two different weekly boxes: a veggie / fruit box that will cover a range of up to 40 different varieties of veggies and fruit, and an egg box. The box program runs from June to November.
If you are in the Woodstock to Fredericton area, you should consider supporting Tim, Kristen, and families new venture by joining the Strawberry Hill Farm CSA.
