2019 CSA PRODUCE SHARES

Blacksburg, Radford, and Pulaski customers!  We are pleased to announce that we have expanded our produce shares to 40 spots (we’ll have a waiting list, too, so don’t despair)!

Added to this website, you will see just above this post a navigation area that now has link to “CSA Produce Share.” Click that link and head over to our CSA page for details and breakdown of the program or just click here and go directly to our CSA page.

In brief, we will ofter freshly picked, high quality produce each week to our share members over a 20 week season.  Members will be emailed (so be sure to fill out the contact form) the Sunday before the Pulaski and Blacksburg distribution (Radford may be added) days.  The email will contain a list of available produce, and share members will choose what items they would like in their bags.

Pick-ups will be in Pulaski (Tuesdays from 4 to 7PM at the Marketplace) and Blacksburg (day, time, and location TBD).  Bring your empty bag back and get a full one in return.  No fuss no muss, in and out and ready to eat…it’s just that easy!

We have three payment options: you can pay for the full 20 weeks and receive a discount, you can pay for each month, or you can pay by the week.

Signup today!  Harvest season is just around the corner!  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some super fresh vegetables!

First farmer’s market of the season – 5/19 from 4-8, Pulaski

Farmer’s start thinking about a market’s opening day on the last day of the market! And here it comes….opening night at the historic train depot in downtown Pulaski, VA. Join us at the Marketplace farmer’s market, May 19th from 4-8. This market has a lot to offer including many new vendors, featured food preparers, music, beverages and activities for young and old. Here is what is planned for tomorrow evening (visit the Marketplace website for a whole calendar):

We had a work-filled weekend, and we got much accomplished…yet we are still behind in our production. However, we have every intention of being at opening night. We may not have much…but here is what I plan to bring:

  • asparagus
  • loose leaf lettuce mix
  • braising mix (may have some flea beetle damage)

I’ll provide an update on harvests tomorrow…check our Facebook page for details. Hope to see you there! A

Farm to table

Blackstone Grill is promoting a farm-to-table culinary experience at the restaurant by supporting local growers. Here are some photos of produce possibilities and of collaborators. A Channel 10 WSLS news segment at 5:30 will feature Ashish (General Manager) and Ben Harder (Den Hill Permaculture). We also made a new friend, Ellen from Sickle Moon Farm in Riner.
