Thanks to our CSA shareholders, this year, we were able to plant our first blueberry field here at Hunts Brook Farm!
On our CSA program application, there are always two opportunities for our members to contribute in other ways to the HBF community. One option is to make a donation to our community fund, which provides healthful, nutritious food to individuals or families who otherwise would not able to afford membership. The second donation option is an investment in the farm’s future. Teresa and I (Rob, a.k.a. “Digga”) are the stewards of the farm and have been making this investment for years. We have taken the farm from an old, burnt down 1760s farmhouse with overgrown fields to what you see today.
The new blueberries represent a sense of ownership that we hope all of our CSA members feel, not just in the share of each year’s production, but also in future bounties. This speaks to the heart of the CSA model and the backbone that it provides for the longevity of Hunts Brook Farm.
Many thanks to all of our shareholders for your continued support, and here’s to watching the blueberries grow and a fruitful season ahead!
On behalf of all of us at Hunts Brook Farm,
Rob (a.k.a. “Digga”)
