This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.
You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.
Week of March 28 2021
Welcome back friends of Old 99 Farm, here we are going heading into Spring full force.
We have two beeves back from butcher and were stocked up on plenty of your favourite cuts. This time we have special cuts based on advice of master butcher, Jamie Waldron. We have special steaks and recipes for best flavour. Ground beef and stew is packaged in 1kg bags.
Old 99 CSA option starting this season
CSA means community shared agriculture and it’s all the rage, most local CSA farms are booked up, so we decided to offer this way of buying local. You pay a fixed amount in advance and get a box of our vegetables every week. We are charging $25/week x 24 weeks, so $600 for a small share, enough to supply most adults with their vegetables. Plus we will put a dozen eggs in the box. Limited to the first 10 families to sign up. Also have medium and large share options. See the item in The Market under CSA Harvest Share. If you can get four neighbours on your block to sign up, we will deliver to your house as the drop-off local, each thursday. Sign up soon, simplify your local harvest!
We have a great selection of lettuces and leafy greens tis week choose from green leaf lettuce, Rouge d’Hiver red leaf lettuce, red kale, green kale, collard greens, swiss chard, spinach, arugula, parsley and a few more.
We also have our composted cattle/pig/chicken manure available for pickup by the bushel or cubic yard. Its great fuel for your garden beds at home.
We will have a few of many different garden vegetables and varieties available for sale. Advance orders are on best effort basis. Available mid May onwards while supply lasts. Lots of heritage tomatoes this year.
Please remember to place your orders BEFORE 7 AM Thursday morning. orders placed after this time may not be processed. Market pickup times are 4 PM to 6 PM Thursday & Friday.
We look forward to seeing everyone again this week.
