Field Notes:

We received about 3 inches of rain during the last storm. The soil has absorbed the rainfall quickly so we are hoping for more this week. There has been a steady cloud cover that helps the soil retain the moisture and keeps the plants hydrated longer. The greenhouse is filled to the brim with fennel, kale, chard, and napa cabbage starts. The plants are sizing up and getting close to being big enough for transplanting. We will do the transplanting during a window of dryness before the end of January. Visit the farms Instagram account to view our winter projects including the very full greenhouse here: riverdogfarm.


Egg Subscriptions Now Available!

At long last, we are beginning to see the light, literally. We have been suffering a shortage of eggs here at the farm for some months now. Because of the lengthening light hours in the day our egg layers are beginning to produce more eggs!  We are happy to announce that we now have enough eggs to offer our csa members the option of adding eggs to your CSA subscription. Instructions below.

  • If you would like to add eggs to your weekly or bi-weekly CSA delivery follow this link to log on to your member page: https://csa.farmigo.com/account/riverdogfarmcsa
  • Once signed on, click the “Change” text next to your current Subscription located inside the Summary Box near the top right of your member page.
  • Next click the “Options” tab (at the top next to Shares) and select the number of egg dozens desired and your corresponding csa delivery schedule.

Eggs will be located in a box at your pick up location separate from your veggie box. Please only take eggs if they are listed next to your name on the sign in sheet. Each egg dozen will be labeled with the member’s name that they belong to. Please pay attention at pick up and do not take eggs unless they have your name on them. If there is a problem with your subscription, or there has been some kind of mix up contact the office right away. Enjoy!
