A sustainable farm that provides for the land, the farmers, and a community committed to connecting to their source of food and eachother.
Although we will no longer be producing vegetables for weekly deliveries, we are busy dreaming up ways to connect with Spring Hill Members around this farm and the food grown here including:
- Spring Plant Sale;
- Occasional Pop-up Markets throughout the season with offerings
like an early spring bag, maple syrup, garlic, food for preserving,
a fall bag of storage vegetables and more;
- On-Farm Events;
- Supporting food accessibility by growing for two local food shelves
We’ll be sharing our new vision for Spring Hill soon. Stay tuned!
You can go to www.landstewardshipproject.org for a listing of Community Supported Farms in our area that may be offering weekly shares.
- Share in the work to create a farm that is economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable
- Share the risk and share the bounty
- Make decisions together
- Ensure that the size of the farm holds in balance considerations of land, community, and farm viability
- Work together to nurture a friendly and creative community
How is Spring Hill Adjusting for Covid-19?
After talking with the Core Group, participating in several national and regional on-line sessions with fellow farmers and food system experts, and reading the CDC guidelines, we believe we can safely and reliably grow food for Spring Hill members. As of now, the CDC has concluded that “food is not a likely vector” of the corona virus. Paying attention to already established food safety recommendations with extra care in sanitizing surfaces will guide us in producing safe, healthy food.
For the time-being, we are cancelling on-farm community activities.
As we care for ourselves and each other in this time of COVID-19, we ask you to observe the following:
1) Read all e-mails from the farm so you are aware of any updates.
2) If you are sick, STAY HOME!! Some options if you are sick: cancel your order, re-schedule the delivery, or request that a Spring Hill volunteer make a contact-free vegetable delivery to your home.
3) Wear a mask while you are picking up vegetables.
4) Sanitize your hands with the provided sanitizer.
5) If at all possible, we ask that only ONE person from a household pick up veggies.
6) Practice social distancing while at the site, including one person at a time in the area, and allow for a minimum of six feet between people while waiting.
7) Bring your own pencil/pen if you’ll need one.
8) If you touch it, please take it! Only touch and take one bag.
9) We ask that this year, only Spring Hill members pick up orders. If you are unable to pick up your order, e-mail the farm to cancel.
