Dear CSA community,
It is with a very heavy heart that we would like to inform you that Our Little Farm (Notre petite ferme) will no longer be offering CSA boxes, at least not for the 2024 season. It is a decision that has not been taken lightly, and we understand that it may be disappointing news for you.
The reasons for stopping our organic CSA box program are strictly personal. As farmers, we have always been so proud of the farm that we’ve built, of the the high-quality local organic veggies we’ve been able to grow, but more importantly, of the amazing support we’ve received from you! We’ve said it time and time again, we would never have been able to grow healthy local food for a living without you! We are eternally grateful to you!
However, over the past few months, it became increasingly clear to us that while we still love farming, we would like to dedicate even more time to work in the wider issues facing our agricultural community. While we are both involved in various organizations over the past decade or so, we have realized that when we farm full-time, we do not have the time to dedicate to them as much as we would like.
Right now, we unfortunately cannot confirm what we will be growing or how we will be selling our products, so for those of you who wish to receive a CSA box, we wanted to let you know that there are many other farms in the area that offer such a service. As far as farms we can recommend, we have known the folks at Ferme Lève-tôt for years and we can recommend them without hesitation. For those that do not have drop-off near them, you can find a CSA farm that services your area online here.
Over the years, many of you have commented at how much you appreciate the recipes that Gen has been putting out on a weekly basis – please note that most of our recipes will continue to be on the Bakespace website. And if you remember a recipe that you can’t seem to find, just let us know, and we’ll point you in the right direction. Our farm is still in business, albeit part-time, and we will respond to phone calls, texts or emails as usual. And we might even send out a newsletter from time to time!
Again, we want to thank all our clients and all those who have supported us over the years. You are all amazing people, and we deeply appreciated your incredible support! Whether you have been a client with us for 1 year or 13 years, we can’t thank you enough – you helped us live our farm dream! Growing local organic veggies for you has been a real pleasure!
Much love to you, from our family to yours & may our paths cross again,
Jim & Gen (and our kids – Nico, Thomas & Frédéric)
