Honoring Mothers
Asparagus Mother's Day

   The annual celebration of moms is this weekend, and we'll be offering chocolate-dipped strawberries to all the moms who spend part of their special day at the farm. The asparagus harvest kicks into full swing this weekend as well, so we'll have bouquet-like bundles of asparagus available in the market, and we'll be featuring delicious roasted asparagus and red onion flatbread pizza in the Roosteraunt.

   By the way, if you've noticed how great the Roosteraunt looks this year, that's thanks to Holly Walker, who has made that space delightfully her own. From the decor to the pizza recipes, it's all Holly this year!

   CSA members, if your summer vacation plans are already set, please log into your account and make your vacation hold requests. If you've forgotten your log-in codes, let us know and we'll re-set you. 

No you-picking this week. Strawberries should start in the middle of May.

Delivery days for group sites and and home delivery members will be determined at the end of May, after we've sold most of our shares. Watch Crop Talk for that information and other news.
Audley Farms CSA Add-on

   If you made it to the Members Open House on Saturday, you had a chance to sample some of the extraordinary beef that comes from Audley Farm . We're carrying that beef in our market this year, and we're offering a special CSA beef add-on for pick-up here at the farm. More information about the add-on program is available on our blog .
