We are looking forward to our 2023 season. This will be the eighth year for GI Acres.
We have been recognized by the Department of Agriculture. They sent us the 2017 Census of Agriculture and we did our part by filling it out and letting them know that corn, soybeans, beef, and pork are not the only agricultural products from Nebraska. Again we were recognized with the 2022 Census of Agriculture we reported that we have more property and a more diversified group of crops.
Kathy and I are already looking at seed catalogs and figuring out what we need to order. If there is something that you think we should try send us an email, Facebook message, text or tweet.
Do you want fresh vegetables all summer long but don’t have the time, inclination, or space to grow your own? Let us grow them for you. In 2023 we are offering 10 shares to our CSA (Community Supported Agricultural Operation). The price of a share is $475 due and payable by March 31, 2022. The growing season will begin toward the end of May or beginning of June and last through the first hard freeze or September. We are anticipating that the full season members will pick up on Monday’s again this year. There are 18 Mondays between June 5 and October 2nd. We are expecting a total of 15 weeks of shares during this time. We expect that most weeks it will only be vegetables but some weeks we will have eggs or value added products like Asian pepper paste, fermented pickles or prepared horseradish.
Again this year we are offering a short season share from July to early September with 6 weeks of pickups on the weekend for $225. This is perfect for someone that isn’t sure they want to commit to a full share or for someone that just likes those summer veggies (Tomatoes, Peppers, Egg Plant etc…) It will also help us keep things picked and monitor the garden between regular weekly pickup. We will have 6 short season shares available.
