Hi friend,

We are busy with lots of babies right now!  Our goats decided the coldest days in January would be the PERFECT time to start dropping kids!  We have had over 18 babies born this month and two bottle babies.  It feels like we are taking care of a newborn again...thank goodness they are so darn cute!!! 

We are pretty excited about our 2020 season.  One of the biggest complaints we hear is receiving too much of a certain veggie - and it varies from family to family.  Some folks can't get enough summer squash and others feel like it is coming out their ears.  Some only want a few ears of corn and others want it every week.  This season we are able to offer our members the best of both worlds!  

Are you ready to learn more? See how Farmhouse Nashville fits your life! 

We now offer CUSTOMIZABLE shares through Harvie, our online farm share management software.

Once you sign up for a share, you’ll be asked to rate all the products we have to offer on a scale of “not for me” to “I love it.” Your share will be built based on those preferences and what we have available in season at the time. Don’t like beets? Rate them a “not for me” and you won’t ever see them! Love carrots? Give them an “I love it” and we’ll try to get that to you every time they are available! Read about preferences HERE

Swap your veggies!  

Prior to your delivery, you’ll have the option to swap out items if you want! Already have enough radishes this week? Just swap them out for something else we have available that week.  And don’t worry, if you love the surprise of not knowing what is in your share, you can simply skip setting preferences and customizing and we’ll pack a regular ole share for you to pick up!  Read about how to swap items HERE

Going on vacation? 

Traveling? No problem. Harvie has a built in tool that will allow you to place your share on “hold” or reschedule it for a future date within your season. Read about how to reschedule or hold your share HERE

New Payment Plans!

We know paying up front for a share can be tough on the budget. With our shares, you’ll have two different payment options. We’ll review them here: Pay in Full Payment Plan:  You’ll pay 25% down at sign up.  You’ll pay an additional 25% + 1st share delivery the first week of deliveries.  Then, the additional 50% balance will be split evenly throughout the remainder of the season. This will be charged to your card on file.

Sign Up early and receive 10% off!!!  

Join us this season and we’ll deliver shares of farm-fresh produce customized to your personal preferences!  It doesn't get any better than that!

Dear %%user-name%%,

We just made an exciting change to our farm share program! Ready to hear about it? Introducing customizable farm shares!  We are so excited! 

How does it work?We partnered with Harvie, an online farm share management program, that will allow members to be able to:

*Customize what vegetables you receive in your share!

*Flexible payment options.

*Easily reschedule your share or change delivery dates if you aren’t able to pick up!

*Built in cooking and recipe tips plus connect with farm share members all over the world (literally!)

*Swap items: Add “extra” products! 

When you join our customizable farm share, you will get the same quality ingredients and farm-to-table connection you’ve come to expect from us over the years, but with the addition of making it easier for you to use and enjoy all your items. You’ll see less food waste and enjoy a more convenient and personalized farm share program! In the next couple of weeks we are going to go through all these changes in detail for you so expect a few more emails from us as we show you how our new program will work. 

Ready to sign up now?

Hi Friends,

We hope you had a wonderful weekend and were able to enjoy the beautiful fall weather!  Seeing the CSA season come to an end is always a bittersweet feeling.  Many of you have contacted me to say how much you enjoyed the season and how much you will miss the veggies!  I must say that I believe this was our best season yet.  I, too, will miss the all the fresh picked veggies.  Thinking about going to the grocery store to pick up produce is not something I look forward to doing!  

Thank you for your support and encouragement over the past 24 weeks.  I am convinced, we have the BEST CSA members in Middle TN!  In case you haven't heard, we were voted the Best CSA in Nashville for the fourth straight year.  I'm still just giddy over the shock of winning...again!  There are so many amazing CSA's in Nashville and  for us to even be mentioned - is unbelievable, but to win, well, knock me over with a feather!  Never in a million years would I have believed this would happen!  Just Pinch Me!!  Without all of you - none of this would be possible.  I am forever grateful for your support, year after year and for trusting us to bring your family the very best local food available!  Thank you!!

We need to change the date of our Family Farm Day.  Our partnering farm, Golden Rule Garden, had a prior commitment that they had over-looked and needed to honor.  We have pushed the date out to Saturday November 9th.  The weather may be cooler by that point - but we will have hot drinks on hand and lots of fun!  The kids will love to see all of the farm animals and take rides on the pony carts.  We should still have greens coming in, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and maybe broccoli and cabbage.  We would love to send you home with some fall veggies!  Pack a lunch and plan to come to the farm!  We would love the opportunity to show you where your food is grown and get to know you better!  Please let us know if you plan to attend!

Our Winter Pastured Meat CSA will begin the second week of November.  We are so excited to partner with Whitaker Farms in Cottontown.  We still have a few more shares available and would love for you to SIGN UP

Don't forget to grab your Holiday Turkey in our Farm Store.  We only have a few of these gobblers left, so be sure and put a deposit on one today.  Just a side note, we receive more compliments on our Turkeys.  They are so good, your family will flip out of their chairs!  Really - they're that good!

We hope to see many of you at our Family Farm day, but for those of you that we miss - we hope to see you in the spring!  We will start taking early bird sign ups in January and plan to try and offer a farm share that you can customize to better meet your family's needs.  More about that soon!  

Thanks again for a great season!  It was a pleasure to feed your family!

 

Cheers to Healthy Eating,

Hi Friends,

We are just weeks away from our 2019 Pastured Meat CSA starting.  Have you Signed Up?  We are super excited to be offering pastured beef that is grass fed and grass finished...something that is harder and harder to find these days!  Our chickens are on pasture 24/7 and supplemented with a locally sourced GMO-free, Soy-free feed - and are just plain happy little hens! Our hogs are on a rotational grazing scheduled, finished in the woods on acorns and supplemented with a GMO free, locally sourced feed.  Our animals are healthy and happy....it doesn't get much better than that!    

You can Sign Up here:  Winter Meats 2019

We also have our delicious, pasture raised, Turkeys available for the holidays!  These birds are so succulent and delicious!  Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a little over a month away?  We always receive amazing feedback on our Turkeys!  We only have 10 left, so be sure and get your order in today!  Reserve your bird: HERE

Have a wonderful Wednesday and be sure to stay tuned  - Best of Nashville is happening tonight and we are super excited to see who the winners will be!

 

Cheers to Healthy Eating,

Good Morning!

We are feeling exceptionally thankful for this cool, wet Monday morning!  Our prayers have been heard -we are praising the Lord for this much needed rain!

We hope you have enjoyed the Zipper Cream peas that we've sent over the last several weeks.  They are easy to shell and cook up so quickly in stock. Our family has enjoyed zipper creams, turnip greens, slaw and green beans the past several weeks.  I believe I could live off these yummy plants! We love to cook the turnip greens in stock - cook them down to where they are dark green.  They are delicious with mashed potatoes too!  Eat the greens we are sending - they are chopped full of nutrients your body needs!  

The hibiscus roselles are also a favorite around here.  Have you tried making this delicious tea?  If not, you are missing out!  You can read more about this beautiful, healthy tea here:  Hibiscus tea

Our Harvest Report for Week 23 looks something like this:  Mustard Greens, sweet potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, onions, spaghetti squash or butternut squash, hot peppers, zucchini, micro-greens and cherry tomatoes.  Please remember this is our best guess and may look different once we start picking!

 

Our CSA season begins in May and runs for 24 weeks....it is hard to believe that we are down to the last two weeks of the season.  The final deliveries for our weekly and bi-weekly B folks will be Tuesday October 15th and Thursday October 17th.

Please make plans to attend our end of the season Family Farm Day on October 26th.  It will be a wonderful day to meet the Brubaker family and see where your food is grown.  The Brubakers are a Mennonite family and do not use electricity or modern conveniences.  The community where they live is a wonderful place to visit.  We will enjoy wagon rides around the farm, pony cart rides and more.  There will also be more veggies available for you to pick and take home.  Pack a lunch and join us!  The address is 612 Shores Road, Scottsville KY.  

 

Cheers to Healthy Eating,

We are now accepting deposits on our Pastured Turkeys.  We received so many raving reviews last year and SOLD OUT pretty quickly!  Several people called and emailed to tell us that our turkeys were the best they had ever had!  You can reserve your Thanksgiving Turkey, HERE!  Don't worry about the pick up location, we will announce pick up spots once the turkeys are back from the processor in mid November!
