Well, looks like we are not going to get away from this one folks so regretfully we will not be attending the Oneida County Public Market tomorrow Sat Feb 9th from 9-2!
The good news is that we would LOVE to fire up the bread oven and bake for all our sourdough bread lovers that can’t wait until another market. If you are interested in traveling to the farm to pick up your loaves we do still have shallots, carrots, and beets that you can stock up on while your here! If you are “game” email Amy at email@example.com to place your order and we will bake your loaves for pick up next Saturday Feb. 16th! Please place your orders no later than 2pm on Wed. Feb 13th. Remember the loaves freeze wonderfully. All you need to do is put them in your preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes and ENJOY!
100% local Organic Sourdough $6.50

Thanks for the Thanksgiving orders everyone. As of this morning(Mon) we have sold out of greens!
Happy Thanksgiving to all. May your table be graced with abundance in many forms… family, friends, love, peace, and lots of tasty local food!!
How about that snow! It just keeps coming doesnt it?
We hope to begin our planting outdoors around April 15th. Time will tell.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that we will be attempting to replace our plastic cover on our hoophouse that was damaged in the high winds we experienced a week ago this upcoming week. Any and all volunteers that are interested in helping hold a corner would be appreciated! It’s 110′ x 46′ and can become quite a sail quickly with wind and not enough hands. We are hoping for a day that is calm with not much wind so please stay posted and we will let you know the day.
Thank you to all that helped donate towards our plastic replacement cover. It was so kind of you and you will be the first in line for our spring greens from the hoophouses! Thanks again.
We currently have 12 shares left for our 2011 season. If you have friends or family who have been considering joining please let them know as we may book our csa before the season begins.
We were having some difficulty with our blog notification but we believe we have corrected the problem. Please visit our blog for postings you may have missed as well as our Alambria Springs Farm facebook fan page.
Here’s hoping for spring!

It is memorial day evening and the much needed rain is pounding our metal roof overhead! We are so grateful. With all this hot weather and now this wonderful rain we are ready!!
The following are the commencement dates of our 2010 CSA season at our various locations:
On Farm Saturday June 5th from 10-4pm.
On Farm Tuesday June 8th from 3:30pm-7:30
Norwich, at Cafe Connection Saturday June 5th pick up from 10-2pm
Morrisville, at The Copper Turret Thursday June 10th pick up from 3pm-6pm.
Syracuse, at members home located at 6180 Hemingway Road Jamesville pick up on Thursday June 10th from 2pm-6pm.
We are asking that all On-Farm pick up members please bring your own baskets and bags to collect your vegetables this year!! We will not be providing waxed boxes as it is wasteful and it adds unnecessary extra cost. Let’s all work together to recycle as many plastic bags as we can so bring them with you to use.
This weeks offerings should include Head Lettuce, Spinach, Rhubarb, Radishes, Cooking greens(kale/chard), Gourmet Salad mix, and Herbs.
We will be providing some items for sale such as eggs, goats milk soap, and coffee at our farm store.
Finally, our farm store is not complete and we are asking you to work with us as we complete it over the next month. We ran into some difficulties and we apologize for the delay, but anticipate having a lovely space for all of you to gather your fresh local vegetables and other products. Once again we thank you for your understanding and support!

A quick update today May 26. We are working diligently sun up to sun down to provide you with beautiful local vegetables in June. Due to the extreme weather conditions over the past month,(2″ of snow mid-May with 60mph wind storms and now very hot and dry conditions coupled with our limited ability to irrigate) some of the crops are behind schedule just a bit. We will continue to do our very best to hit the start up date of June 5th. Worst case scenerio, we will delay start up by one week and begin first pick up June 12th. We will update this post on Monday(memorial day) to comfirm start up date and what you can expect in your share for the week. If we need to delay for one week, we will make up for this and extend the season an extra week in November.
Thank you for your understanding as we are working with mother nature and the unpredicability of each growing season.
For those members waiting for a matching partner, we will be communicating with you by this weekend with your partner’s contact information. If anyone has an issue with Alambria sharing that information please email us before Saturday May 29th.
Here’s hoping for rain!!
See you all soon.
