Contrary to popular belief Spring is really here. Today is opening day of the Bainbridge Island Farmers Market. Join in the celebration. We hear there will be the traditional goat cheese toss and free horse & wagon rides through town. Of course we’ll be there today and every Saturday through out the season, ending October 29. The market is located at Town Square at City Hall (map) 9 a.m – 1 p.m. Please come by and visit us. Remember CSA subscribers get receive a 10% discount when buying from us at the Bainbridge market.
Great news for smartphone users! We’ve created special versions of the Persephone Farm and The Season websites just for mobile phone users. If you have an iPhone, a Blackberry or an Android based smartphone and visit either site on your mobile device you’ll find that both websites have been optimized for viewing and navigating on your small screens. Why go to all this trouble? So that CSA subscribers and Bainbridge Farmers Market customers can easily find out about the latest weekly Persephone offerings, follow Bill’s “The Season” blog, and quickly access recipes for your fresh fruit and veggies.
All of our subscribers are requested to attend our CSA orientation on Wednesday, June 2 from 5:30 until 7:30 at our farm in Indianola. Important information regarding how our CSA operates and how to pick up your veggies will be covered in a presentation. You will be asked to pay the balance of your share, and will be given the opportunity to sign up for add on shares on a first come first serve basis. You will pick up your bag of delicious food at our farm orientation, note, no pick up at the Johnson farm the first week. You have an opportunity to look around the farm and meet our new interns. To make the whole thing even more enjoyable, we will provide farm fresh appetizers. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Monday the lambs arrived! This year, from Ann Morse, who bred our little herd of seven Suffolks on her Bainbridge Island farm. They are beautiful animals. Read about their arrival on Bill’s blog, The Season.
Louisa and Rebecca welcomed the 2010 apprentices, Joel, Mondrian aka “Moe”, Caitlin and Greg. The weather was fine for their first week at Persephone. Welcome to Indianola!
