1st CSA Delivery Thursday, June 8th 2016
Pick-up sites will be open from 1-6 pm every Thursday
Pizza Nights at Stoney Acres Farm May 5th- October 27th 2015
Fridays 4:30pm-8pm. The pizza is made with ingredients from our farm including the wheat, vegetables, meats and with local and Wisconsin organic cheeses. These events are not included in the cost of the CSA but are a nice excuse to come visit us. There will be one CSA cooking class and u-pick opportunities during several Friday Nights for CSA members. We will have 3-5 choices each week including a cheese/margarita and seasonal rotations (look forward to the “scape goat” garlic scape, and goat cheese and hundreds of others). Bring a blanket to sit on and your own drinks and enjoy and evening on the farm.
Cooking Classes- Dates TBA 2-3 classes on the farm. Additionally through some net online networks we hope the CSA community will help organize some neighborhood cooking classes or projects.
Upick and Gleaning- upick is a bonus (not part of the calculated cost) of a CSA share but is something some people really enjoy. We will still offer traditional upick for tomatoes (every family gets at least 1/2 bushel free) and pumpkins (at the pumpkin pick or by appointment if you cant make it out for that event) and may offer berries or other crops if there is a specific glut.
This season we will expand options by offering gleaning times (times to come out and pick beds of vegetables once we are done harvesting). This food can be picked for individual use or as part of a group donation to local food pantries (or both). These times will be announced in weekly newsletters. Some gleaning options will involve helping us harvest something like sweet potatoes (you take small extras) and some will be more self guided (you pick the remaining peas or beans). There is no cost associated with gleaning but it is a great way to stock your pantries, to pick for fun or experience with your kids, or as a way to eliminate food waste and to provide food for lower income families in the region.
CSA Member Only Pizza Night TBA pizzas made 5-7pm. This is like a regular pizza night (you buy your pizzas) but without crowds and is on a Saturday night. Includes time to mingle with fellow CSA members, a kids (and adults) farm tour to harvest and make your own salad, a preview of the first CSA box with tips on storage, a cooking class, cooking resources and much more. Come hang out with your farm family! You can bring a friend,
All Local Pancake Brunch - Sunday June 25th 2017, 9am-1pm
Tony's amazing pancake recipe with as many other local foods as possible. Pancakes will be served with our maple syrup, homemade applesauce, there will also be homegrown pork sausage, scrambled eggs, local, yogurt and milk and locally roasted coffee. Due to variability in the seasons we will offer a upick tour of the farm where you can harvest veggies, berries and herbs with your family based on what is available.
