Hello to all at Urban Grains!

July 15th, 2012 by Admin

A new season is underway and we send greetings from Cedar Isle Farm in Agassiz.

We thank each of you for your patience and continued interest in Urban Grains CSA. It was great to hear from those of you who emailed us. We are pleased to provide a short update on the season so far.

Once again this year, we planted the wheat fields in the sunny days of April. Since then, however, the weather has been cool and wet, creating some challenges for the growing crops.
While we remain confident that the weather will eventually turn more favourable, we’ve decided to delay the share offer until harvest. Once the grain is safely in the bin and we know how much is available, we’ll give you a chance to buy a share. In the meantime, we’ll keep working hard and try to keep you informed as the season progresses.

Thanks to everyone who has asked about shares for 2012. We really appreciate your interest in local, organic grain and are sorry it has taken us so long to decide how to handle this soggy season.

We look forward to contacting you all in early September … with news of a good harvest!
All the best for a happy summer,
Jim and Diane
Cedar Isle Farm
