2015 CSA members are all invited to attend our farm events. These events are a great chance to meet your farmers, see where your food is grown, and to celebrate the local harvest. Specific dates are yet to be determined.
May 2015 – Market and ‘Maters Come meet Mike, Cassie, Zea, and Edie at our farmer’s market stand a few weeks before the CSA season begins. You’ll get to pick out your very own tomato seedling to take home and plant. The market is located ACROSS from Hilldale Mall in the D.O.T. parking lot on the corner of Segoe and Sheboygan on Madison’s west side. It starts at 7a.m. and winds down around noon. Honey Bee Bakery vends at this market, so it will be a great chance to try Mary’s bread and see if you want to join her bread CSA!
June 2015- Strawberries & Silk screens Pick strawberries and silk screen your own t-shirt at the farm! This should be fun for the whole family, as everyone will get a chance to pick some berries (quantity is dependent on the crop and weather) and make a Crossroads t-shirt. We’ll have a couple of different design options, and you’ll be able to silk screen a t-shirt right onto one of your favorite tees. Farm tours will also be available. The fun starts at 1p.m. and goes until 3:30p.m.
August 2015- Corn Boil and Member Potluck We’ll have a tour of the farm and then we’ll all share in a feast together! Members are asked to bring a dish to pass and we’ll boil up some sweet corn. We’ll share a meal family style in the barn! Starts at 5:30 pm.
September 2015 – Annual Harvest Party Come celebrate the end of a wonderful season. We’ll party in the blue barn at our farm in Cross Plains. We’ll provide local cider and live music. A catered taco bar featuring our veggies will offer tacos for sale. Feel free to bring a picnic dinner if you prefer. BYOB. Starts at 5:00 pm.
