Dear CSA members and farm friends, 

Welcome to Week 20 of our spring and summer season. Can you believe this is the last week of the CSA season? 

We have grown a lot of food over the last twenty weeks and have covered a lot of culinary ground, from the delicious spring salads of strawberries, turnips, carrots, and lettuce to plates of roasted okra, sliced tomatoes and sweet onions. I have enjoyed many delicious meals from our farm this year, and I hope that you have enjoyed sharing in the experience. 

With working infrastructure, a large, well-experienced crew and favorable weather conditions, 2017 has been the year of coalescence at Native Son, and I could not be more proud of what our farm community has done and the CSA shares that we have put out. Thanks to everyone that has participated this season. We can not do this without you. 

After a brief period of summertime burnout, I have found myself re-inspired by fall and the promise of a new season’s abundance. If you have not signed up for the fall share, please take a few minutes to visit our website at nativesonfarm.com and complete the online sign up form. If you have any trouble just email, and we will get you signed up. 

For many, fall is the best time to be a CSA member, and we have plans and plants in place to make it a truly spectacular season full of salad greens, cooking greens, root crops and mammoth heads of broccoli and cauliflower. 

Thanks for eating with us. We love growing for you. 

Will and the farm crew
