Newsletter for Week 8 of Spring CSA 2022

Hello FaRmily!

If you liked last week's CSA, you are going to love this one even more! We have been blessed with some very beautiful crops so far this season, the completion of tons of projects on the farm, incredible success in both the Ahavah Farm Nursery & Garden Center and even more success in the Ahavah Farmer's Market and we are so grateful to so many who have had a hand in helping our community!

So much has been happening lately, at the busiest time of the year - no less! Please join us for our events, our tours and classes, our Farmer's Market and our Nursery and Garden Center on-site store. Read below for all the info!

👉There is a new section titled "Around the Farm" this week, there is also a new article, some very important updates and a new video update as well. See below for all the details!





PS. In the coming weeks we will be changing the newsletter entirely. This will become the main communication tool and platform for all communication and Facebook will eventually be completely phased out. We will also be updating and utilizing our website on a broader scale. keep an eye out for those changes in the coming weeks and months.

REMINDER:👉 Every week we will be sending out this newsletter on Monday/Tuesday and every Thursday we post to the blog and to the Ahavah Community Facebook Group all the details of your bag contents, the extras available for purchase and what to expect to be available for Market-Style members. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE AWARE OF CHANGES AND UPDATES DUE TO WEATHER AND CHANGES DUE TO HOLIDAYS OR OTHER UNPREDICTABLE SITUATIONS THAT MAY ARISE (we are a small family farm, not a grocery store, after all😄 )

👉Please see the weekly updates below including a word from Farmer Yosef, some educational articles, announcements, changes, interviews, highlights and more.

📢See below for event updates, new articles and announcements!📢

Enjoy your shares this month and don't forget to join the fun and share your recipes and pictures in the Facebook Community Group!

New Section! - 👩‍🌾Around the Farm👩‍🌾

👈The orchard is doing amazing! Sure, we lost a few trees, and those will be replaced, but so many of them survived the first (harsh) winter and they are ready to set their roots deep to start to flourish before the next harsh winter! We are so excited! Last year we planted Cherry, Apple, Plum, Pear, Maple, Oak, Paw-Paw, Poplar and a bunch more!

👉The "Cool Crop House" is completed for this year! The walls are up, the cabbages, cauliflower and broccoli are all planted and the roof just got put on yesterday! This shade cloth will keep the plants cool, keep the bugs and hail out, reduce the exposure to the sun and reduce the need to water. Fantastic!

👈Just look at this amazing head of lettuce that Tess is holding! Wow! There are hundreds of them just like this, both green and red that were harvested this week. The lettuce this week is INCREDIBLE!

👉We always celebrate our team members on their birthdays! Sometimes we take them off the farm to go golfing or fishing. Other times we hook them up with a gift and a cookout. Happy birthday Casey, it was a yummy one!😋

👈Scapes are like art! We will have a ton of amazing scapes for the next few weeks. DO NOT MISS THEM!

👉The flowers are now starting to bloom and no newsletter is complete without atleast one cute picture🥰!

☝The Ahavah Farmer's Market has been a great success and a TON of fun! Come out every Friday from 9am to 12pm!

👉 Painting with Tess was SOOOO much fun this week at the Ahavah Farmers Market!

Check out all the amazing art the children made!👇
