Local Farmer's Woes

From the smallest new organic farmer, to the larger established family farmer, all have expressed that this is is the worst season they have been dealt in more than a decade. Average annual rainfall for our region is normally 41 inches. Already in 2018, we have been drenched with 56 inched of rain – a whopping 25% increase – and there’s still weeks to go to the end of the year.

No one knows for sure whether or not this aberration will become the new normal our local growers will have to try to manage. Despite the relentless rain, muddy fields, and massive crop loss, their commitment to growing great food for all of us has not been dampened.

Please help us support our local food producers at this critical time by signing up or renewing your CSA share, shopping at your local farm market, Wrightstown Indoor Winter Farmers Market, and supporting restaurants that prioritize sourcing locally. We can show them all some love and keep them thriving in spite of whatever Mother Nature has in store!
