IMPORTANT UPDATE - 2012/2013 SEASON
Our inaugural (2011/2012) Winter Sun Farms Greater Philadelphia season was a wonderful experience for us however, we will not be undertaking a second season of distributions of the Winter CSA. Whilst we truly believed in and enjoyed what we were trying to create, there were just too many challenges involved in bringing the concept to fruition in the Philadelphia area quickly enough for us to succeed. Not all the barriers were professional or financial and some of our own personal circumstances have contributed to us having to re-evaluate our priorities. Regardless we have, regrettably, decided that it does not make sense for us to continue.
In terms of this coming season, we do not unfortunately have an immediate solution to offer at this stage other than of course to make sure you are doing your own produce preserving right now! If you, or any one you know, out there is looking for a chance to take over and expand the opportunity we created then please do get in touch with Jim Hyland (Tel: 845-255-1699) or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) who started the Winter Sun Farms concept in New York. Although Jim’s resources are focused on the New York marketplace right now, there will undoubtedly be future possibilities developing in other regional markets including the Greater Philadelphia area.
We truly enjoyed our experience with Winter Sun Farms. It reiterated to us in so many ways that there are people out there that care about the food they eat and as such are willing to put in the extra effort to obtain it. For that we thank all our members and interested friends from the bottom of our hearts.
We send you our best wishes for the future and until our paths cross may again.
