CSA Kickoff Party – Tuesday, Jan 5

Posted by on 30 Dec 2009 | Tagged as: CSA, Farm News

You’re invited to welcome in the new year with the Stranger’s Hill CSA kickoff party!  This will be a great chance to learn about Stranger’s Hill, meet others interested in sustainable food, and become part of the CSA.  There will be free hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and lots of good company.  The party will be held in the FARMBloomington root cellar (108 E Kirkwood) on Tuesday, January 5th from 8 to 10pm.  It’s an informal gathering, so feel free to show up and leave any time you like.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Announcing the Stranger’s Hill Organics CSA!

Posted by on 14 Dec 2009 | Tagged as: CSA, Farm News

We are pleased to announce that we will be kicking off a new CSA (community supported agriculture) project in 2010! Some of you might remember that we ran the first CSA in Monroe County during the 1990s. Now we are back, and with an expanded farm operation and many more people involved, the Stranger’s Hill CSA promises to be better than ever!

Members will receive shares of fresh, organic vegetables every week for an extended season of 24 weeks, running from May through October. We will also host many activities out at the farm, including potlucks, you-pick days, and workshops on food preservation. For more information, including a list of planned CSA crops and instructions on how to become a member, visit our CSA page. You can also contact our new CSA manager Alex Smith ( to learn more.
