Shady Apple Goats

2014 Summer/Fall Member Information

Introduction to the CSA

Welcome to all of you who are a part of the Shady Apple Goats CSA for the 2014 season. I just want to take a moment to thank you for your support of what we are doing here and to give you all some basic information about the 2014 CSA. I am making a lot of cheese here in preparation for the CSA and am excited to share it all with you. We have five goats pregnant and expect the first kids to arrive at the end of April. We will keep everyone posted with updates as the babies arrive. Or, friend Shady Apple Goats on Facebook for news and baby pictures. Also check out the latest Deep Winter 2014 newsletter for updates.

When will the CSA start?

The CSA will begin in June. The first scheduled distribution for those in Group A will be Saturday June 21st and for those in Group B will be Saturday June 28th.
