As you already know, our marketing season at Sheridan and Chevy Chase ended last weekend (Sundays at Dupont continue to March 31), so you won’t see us for a little while, and I’ll stop writing this blog, “Jim’s Notes”, every week, until we reopen markets in June.
BUT—we are planning our new “news letter” to go out by email probably once a week or so during the spring and on. The big difference from the blog is that the news letter will come to your inbox, and you won’t have to remember to go to our website. (And we promise not to harass you with much-too-frequent emails, as so many businesses do these days.).
But what this means, of course, is that if you want to get our news letter we’ll need your email address. Many of you gave us your addresses on those clipboards at market, but if you missed that chance, and you want to hear from us, please send your address, or just email one word (make it a good one!), to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll automatically have your address! And then you’ll be one of our first subscribers! In the club!
One more subject: if you’ve been reading my Notes you know about the changes at the farm, with ten-year NMFer Jenni Glenister becoming the “operator”, while Jim and Moie stay on as Senior Kibitzers (semi-retired).
But you may or may not have heard about our “Turnip Note” program, a great opportunity to become an investor in the farm, and help Jenni with the financial transition. If you’d like to hear more about this chance to be in on the ground floor of the next phase of your favorite family farm, just email or call and we’ll gladly send out the info packet, or give you a verbal explanation in person.
Our last-day-of-the-season market was a huge success, and we hope you’ve put a few of our things in your fridge or freezer to remember us by.
See you on June 1 with organic strawberries and rhubarb (in or out of a pie.). Also: asparagus, snap peas, spinach and much more, as you know.
Thanks, as always, for your devoted and valued patronage!
