What's going on with Penn's Corner?
Posted 1/7/2008 8:54am by Penn's Corner Farm Alliance.

The Penn's Corner CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) sign up is here! Fresh fruit, vegetables, and farm products are right around the corner. Please click on the link below to sign up now.

 

 

 

Sign up for a ten, 20, or 30 week CSA season. While many CSA's and farmer's markets don't begin until May or June, Penn's Corner CSA begins the first week of April and continues until the end of October.

Penn's Corner delivers weekly boxes of farm fresh produce to neighborhoods all around Pittsburgh. With a CSA membership, you will also receive a weekly e-newsletter with recipes, cooking information, and a list of what will be in the box that coming week.

Penn's Corner is expanding for 2008. There will be more pickup locations offered in 2008, so please let us know if you are willing to be a new site.

Thanks again for supporting your local farmers at Penn's Corner!

Fresh Christmas wreaths made by Goose Creek Garden

From all of us at Penn's Corner, have a wonderful holiday season!  We are excited about what lies ahead in 2008, and we hope you will join us for another great year of the best in fresh, local foods!

Posted 12/10/2007 9:30pm by Penn's Corner Farm Alliance.

Lest anyone begin to think that we have slowed down for the winter, we are ready to announce our next CSA Yard Sale!  Just in time for holiday dinners--why not serve something local?  It's a great way to introduce the CSA to friends and family--and you know it will taste great!   We have beef, pork, lamb; winter squash, potatoes, and apple cider; holiday wreaths; eggs and cheese; pancake mix, and tofu....

We did learn a few lesson from our first Yard Sale, so please read carefully about the changes:

1. Orders are due this Friday December 14 by noon.  So don't delay, the window for ordering is short!

2. We are only delivering to two locations: EEFC/Point Breeze & Goose Creek Gardens/Oakdale.  Hopefully we'll be able to add more locations in the future.

3. Pickup times are as follows: EEFC/Point Breeze = 4-630pm on Wednesday December 19; Goose Creek/Oakdale = all day Thursday December 20.

4. Please bring a check along for payment when you pickup your order.  You can only place an order if we've received all outstanding payments from previous Yard Sale.

5. Due to winter weather possibilities, we reserve the right to postpone or cancel Yard Sale deliveries (we really hope this doesn't happen!).


6. You don't have to be a Penn's Corner CSA member to order.  So feel free to get to know Penn's Corner products through our Yard Sale.  

Thanks so much.  We look forward to hearing from you.

It's not too early to start thinking about a CSA share for 2008!  Penn's Corner is really excited about the upcoming CSA season.  2007 was a great success, thanks to our wonderful CSA members.  And, we're looking for more members next year.  So, please email us at pennscorner@gmail.com.  We're taking the names and email addresses of all interested persons.  Then, in January, we will contact you and begin accepting deposits for the new season.

We are now accepting orders for large quantity tomatoes: 1/2 bushel increments.  Great for canning and preserving.  Roma, regular, and heirloom varieties of tomatoes.  We can deliver them to CSA members at the normal pickup locations.  Please call or email for prices.
