Welcome to Fall Ya'llby Farmer MattWith the start of our Fall CSA the farm is buzzing with activity! Earlier this month we enjoyed a wonderful Fall Fest and Kickoff Party with music from Staci Gray. It was a real treat to see so many familiar faces, and to get to know some of our new CSA members and volunteers. The Farm Stand is officially open for business during our regular hours: Tues 3-6, Fri 10-2, and Saturday 10-2. This season we are working with our landlord to build a bigger, better farm stand and will be increasing our hours, so stay tuned. Be sure to mark your calendars for our next celebration: Spot's Birthday. Yes, our great big boar will be eight on October 27. Another event you don't want to miss: October 5th, you're invited to a chef-led tasting at 602 on Main in Downtown Bastrop as we team up with Locavore Bastrop to celebrate the wonderful local food our area has to offer! Get Your Tickets TodayOne of the best things about cooler temperatures is volunteers start to emerge. We’ve been delighted at the number of enthusiastic folks showing up each Saturday to take a tour and get their hands dirty as a part of our team. If you’d like to join our crew of helpers growing the freshest organic produce around, fill out a Volunteer Form, and we’ll see you at an upcoming Saturday orientation at our urban farm. Volunteers and work shares are welcome to help at either of our farm locations.Our Fall veggie, egg and flower CSAs still have room for more, so please tell your friends. Check out several new pickup locations in both Austin and Bastrop here: CSA Sign-up Page.Fall is a special time at Green Gate Farms, and we can’t wait to provide you and your family with the veggies, eggs, meat and flowers for all of your holiday gatherings. We look forward to seeing you around the farm! Thanks for your support.
