Pickups at The Urban Farm (31 Hazel Street, Morristown) Thursdays 3 pm-5 pm and Saturdays 10 am - 1 pm
Farming at The Urban Farm is about more than growing food. It is about stewarding the land. Our agricultural practices are deeply rooted in lessons learned from indigenous peoples. We are grateful for those that have shared ways to care for the plants, the soil, the water, air and the animals. Over the past 11 years we have used these methods to care for the soil to grow the healthiest, nutrient dense produce. Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares offer our customers a unique experience in town where you get to know the farmers and see where your food comes from.
The funds from the CSA are spent early in the season to buy the seeds, nutrients and implements essential for that season. Regardless of the weather, you are an important part of the local food system and the weekly harvest. You are a part of the farm- its highs and lows, as there are many inputs to growing food that are not in the farmers' control. In the past few years, we transitioned to a build your own share system, where you choose what goes in your bag from 30 different varieties of vegetables over the course of the growing season to reduce food waste.
Some new items this year are: leafy cabbage, sugar snap peas, bush beans, a larger crop of delicata squash, and ground cherries.
'Pick your own flowers' returns! We will keep you updated on fresh herbs. The herb garden is in need of renewal, and this year we are replanting this area hoping to introduce new ethnic varieties coming into production in 2021.
