Sunshine House CSA Shares

Jennifer and I are delighted to announce we are offering shares in our first Sunshine House CSA!  Our son James has been spearheading the transformation  with the help of many of our friends, and a few WWOOFERS (stay tuned for more on WWOOF), to expand our modest permaculture homestead to a small market farm (small being the operative word).

Over the next couple of  months we expect to harvest cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, green beans, peas, carrots, beets, radishes, lettuce, chard, cocozella squash, peppers, okra, rhubarb and several varieties of tomatoes.  Additionally our herb garden is full of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme  ( I could not resist) and second lesser known verse; marjoram, tarragon, mint, and chives.  We will also share at least once: honey, seasonal fruit, and farm fresh eggs.

We anticipate our harvest to begin Monday July 9th and continue weekly through September 24th.  We are offering our twelve week share for a modest investment of $300.00.  Pickup will be available Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning at the Sunshine House in Cromwell.  James is willing to offer delivery. Please call to discuss.

Sustainable Sharing

Over the past five years we have enjoyed sharing our abundance with family, friends, and neighbors. Recently we have realized how important it is for us to do what we love as a lifestyle! We invite you to join us in making an investment in this healthy lifestyle and grow the Sunshine House Farm infrastructure, capabilities and offerings. We will use the rest of the the proceeds of this share and continue to give fresh fruit, produce and eggs to our local Food Pantries.

4th Annual Seedling Swap at the Sunshine House!

We are pleased to open up our Urban Homestead for the 4th Annual Seedling Swap and Plant Share. This is always an exciting pre-planting weekend for us.
Bring any “extra” seedlings you want to share with others. Take some seedlings home you have never tried before. Bring any abundant perennials you want to share, and take some home!

We love sharing time on our urban permaculture site, teaching others how to make the most of their properties – both ecologically and economically. Wear farm boots. We have bees, if you are allergic bring your own epi-pen.
There is generally a ridiculous amount of food too. Bring something yummy to share if you want. I will have coffee percolating.
