Dear CSA Members,
As I walk through the orchards this time of year, I am reminded of the past but also the future of Red Jacket Orchards. 2010 has truly been the year of innovation for Red Jacket; we have implemented a new environmental-friendly juicing facility, launched our Fresh Bodegas program, and welcomed on board Farmer Mike who has just this year begun to transition Red Jacket Orchards into being organically certified. The CSA program, which consists of over 150 households throughout New York City, has grown to three distribution sites and we now provide workplace CSAs – the first orchard to do so in New York City. Our ability to grow as a farm is all due to your support. More specifically, the CSA program in its first year has provided us with the support to expand our pear production, which we are very excited about.
For us, the most important aspect of CSA is the community; we feel honored to become a staple in your home and welcome you into our own lives. Thank you for making Red Jacket Orchards a part of your community. We hope you can all visit us on the farm next CSA season.
From our family to yours, happy holidays!
President of Red Jacket Orchards
