About Thanksgiving Farms
Thanksgiving Farms is a 56 acre family-owned farming operation where we specialize in growing a large selection of fruits from our orchards and vegetables of all varieties, lots of which are heirlooms.
About the CSA
Thanksgiving Farms CSA is a community-supported agriculture farm south of Frederick on Route 85 (Buckeystown Pike). Our emphasis will be on tasting and trying many different vegetables and fruits throughout the 20-week season beginning in mid-June and running through the end of October. We intend to have different vegetables and fruits each week.
The fee for the 2010 Season is $550.00 for a whole share, which should accommodate households of four (4) persons each week for the 20-week season. For those not needing as much, we offer a half share for $300.00, which is plenty to accommodate households of 1 or 2 persons for the season.
We offer weekly pick-ups at our farm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Each participant will receive 2 boxes, one that will be full to go home and one that will remain for the following week’s pick-up. In our farm market, we also offer additional fruits and vegetables, as well as a wide variety of annual and perennial plants and cut flower bouquets to complement your weekly selections.
If interested in the Thanksgiving Farms CSA, please commit by paying a deposit of ½ of the season fee or the full monetary amount by December 31, 2009 with the remainder due by May 31, 2010. We “grow our own” plants from seed and most are started in late January or early February for the spring and summer season.
We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express for payment.
We would greatly appreciate your help in distributing this information so that you may pass it on to your friends, family, or coworkers who may be interested in our CSA and buying locally grown fruits and vegetables.
Questions, please call me, Darby Zimmermann, at 301.662.1291 or 240.409.9100, or stop by our Farm Market any day of the week; we’re open 9am to 5pm. We look forward to meeting your family and a prosperous 2010 Season!
