2017 CSA – Week 1

Hello Folks!

Welcome to the 2017 Pekarek’s Produce Weekly Vegetable Subscription (CSA)! We appreciate your support and look forward to sharing our yummy, fresh vegetables with you through the coming year – THANK YOU!

You can pick up your box every Wednesday at:

 

  • Winter Wonderland in Seward from 3 – 7 pm
  • Schillingbridge Tap and Cork in Lincoln from 3 – 7 pm
  • On the Farm after 1pm

If for some reason you are unable to pick up your weekly produce share during a given week of the season, you are welcome to have a friend pick it up and enjoy.  Otherwise, let us know and we will donate that week’s produce.

How does it work??

Each week you will go to your CSA pick up location (farm, Seward, or Lincoln) and find the Pekarek’s Produce wax box labeled with your name.  We have multiple people with the same last name, so you may have to look for your first initial as well.  The following Wednesday, you will bring back (RETURN) your empty box and leave it at the site in an empty black crate.  You will then pick up a new box, with your name on it, full of new, fresh vegetables.

For those of you who are new to the CSA, Pekarek’s Produce is run by my husband Ryan, and me, Katie.  Ryan earned a Master’s degree from North Carolina State University in Vegetable Production and began raising vegetables in 2004, while in college.  In 2009, we began vegetable farming full time.  All of the produce is grown on family land just 14 miles north of Seward.  Pekarek’s Produce now raises over 50 varieties of crops on approximately 18 acres.  With the help of a small local crew, we tackle the many aspects of farming: seeding, transplanting, watering, hoeing, weeding, harvesting and much more.   We have three kids (Jacob, Margret, and Michael), who as they get older, help out a little more each year.

Each week, we will have a short newsletter describing some aspect of the farm, from hilling potatoes to building cold frames and more.   Be sure to check out our blog at pekareksproduce.wordpress.com for the weekly newsletter, pictures, recipes and more.

Your Farmers,

Ryan, Katie, and Crew
