This page contains news, event information, and other items added by Ian and Adam, the resident farmers at Old 99. We 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.
Old 99 Farm, week of Sept 10 2023
Here’s what the harvest table looked like last week:
Here’s a customer’s CSA basket.
We’ve got some super fennel bulbs this week. Haven’t cooked with fennel? You can slice like an onion and eat it raw. You can steam it whole or sliced as a vegetable. The fronds make a nice garnish or topping on a salad.
The new season crops are going in, some already to the harvestable size, like young kale, lettuce and arugula.
The subscription plan “Let Me Be Your Farmer” is up and running. Pay in advance for 3 months purchases of veg, fruit, eggs, meats and ___, and get 10% off. The farm benefits from a more secure customer commitment and has cashflow to buy inputs like seed and nutrient. You get the choicest items for your basket, a la carte. Typically I’d expect $1500 to $2000 per quarter.
