Here's to hoping that these slightly less hot temps, interspersed with bouts of refreshing cold, are treating everyone well as Summer transitions into Fall.
Here at Echollective, production is still flowing! Market stands and CSA boxes remain full. Tomatoes are still coming out of our high-tunnels, plump and fresh, while we continue awaiting a new round of delicious, delectable greens for Fall - such as arugula, kale, and bok choy!
Winter squash is ripening slowly on the vine, and it's become the time to prepare our Garlic seed for yet another Garlic planting season. Machines, deft hands, and quick eyes are quickly cleaning and comparing bulbs we've spent the last few months pulling and hoisting in from the field.
As the seasons come and go, so do our CSA's! We want to thank everyone who has participated in our Summer CSA season, and extend an invite to anyone who doesn't want to see an end to our veggie goodness, to sign up for Fall.
Interested in Signing Up? Contact us soon, space is limited and our Fall CSA begins next week! Feel free to email or call, and find Farmer Derek's contact info on our "Contact Us" page above.
Pick ups will continue to be at the Downtown Iowa City's Farmer's Markets for a time, Saturdays and Wednesdays right at the Echollective Farms Market booth- up until Market season is over. Then, pickups will most likely be moving to another location, once market ends.
Cost for the Fall CSA Season (8 weeks) is $170. Our Fall CSA Seasons always end with a special, end-of-the-season Thanksgiving box...so keep that in mind!
We hope to be hearing from you soon. Enjoy the last vestiges of Summer!
