February News: Seeding has Begun!!

February is suddenly upon us! We're another month closer to Spring and things on the farm are steadily progressing; our first plantings of tomatoes, onions and leeks have been seeded. Oh, and we couldn't forget about the pansies! They've been seeded as well, making us dream of warmer days and the flower's sweet yet humble pop of color!
For now, while we patiently wait for the seeds to sprout, check out some photos of our favorite Springtime memories.

Below you'll also find an introduction to another new addition to the Crossroad Family! If you've ever wondered if we have a farm dog, here's your (very adorable) answer! 

Then, don't forget to look into our 2019 CSA sign up! Thanks so much to those who have already joined us! For those that haven't yet, we're still offering the 7% discount, but only until the end of February! You're welcome to mail in a check, or sign up online - all the details are below.

Introducing: Lily of the Valley
Lily is Tim and Janet's new puppy! She'll be alongside all of us here at the farm, exploring the greenhouses this Spring and surely patrolling the fields this Summer. But for right now, she is loving the snow - going for snow-shoe walks and playing with Tim and Janet's grand-kids make her the happiest puppy in the whole Upper Valley!

CSA Sign Up:
Join our 2019 CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program! Many thanks to those of you who supported us last year! For those who are unfamiliar with our program, you can learn more from our CSA page. Now is the best time to purchase your CSA share for the upcoming season – here are some details:
 
·     Sign up before February 28 to receive a 7% discount.
·     All CSA balances from the 2018 season will rollover into this season. We’ve emailed members with balances over $50. If you didn't receive an email but are curious about your balance, just email Sarah (sarah@crossroadfarm.com) and inquire! She'd be happy to help!
·     Crossroad Farm offers a CSA model using credit instead of a bushel basket pickup — it’s the best of both worlds! This system gives you the flexibility of shopping anytime and choosing exactly what you’d like.
 
Visit the CSA page to sign up! You'll find two methods there: a mail-in option paying by check or an online option paying by credit card. We prefer that you sign up with a check and the mail-in application as it avoids the fee our credit card online processor charges us... 


We hope you enjoyed the color and cute photos this week! As always, please feel free to reach out; we welcome any feedback or suggestions you’d like to share as we continue into this new season!
