Dear CSA Members,
One of my favorite places on the farm to visit is our experimental garden which is nestled in-between the rows of citrus and blossoming peaches trees. It’s a calming and inspiring area that provides me with great joy and inspires creativity. All the planning and work the farm team did for the garden last year is now coming in to fruition.
