Welcome to the end of 2020. It has been a strange year for all of us. At GI Acres, we had a good year for the farm. We sold/traded all 10 full season shares and sold 3 of 6 short season shares. The weather cooperated and production was good. We did have issues with rabbits this year. They really liked the beets and the Swiss chard this year so we had less of those.
We plan to offer both the Full Season (weekly from June through September) and the Short Season (6 shares between mid-July and mid-September when production is at its highest). Our CSA management platform Small Farm Central is no longer providing the same service. They have grown into a larger and hopefully more successful version. Unfortunately for us their new product is priced at a level that we cannot afford.
At this point we plan to use Google Forms for sign up. Our son Will has added some scripting that will automatically limit choices as shares are spoken for and so it will only let you sign up for what we have available. Former members have priority and are invited to sign up by December 31, 2020. On January 1 we will publish the link to the form publicly and open membership up to everyone.
If you are interested in what you get in each share look at the galleries below. We have 18 weeks of the full season from last year and five of the six weeks of the short season. Week 3 of the short season everyone showed up early or on time and we did not get a picture of the share.[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”109″ gal_title=”2020 Weekly Shares (Full Season)”] [Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”110″ gal_title=”2020 Shares (Short Season)”]
