Hello Friends of Robinette!
It's almost June and we've had a busy year so far! We welcomed twin girls to our family in early April, as well as 22 lambs and our 2013 Farm Crew! We are excited about the 2013 season and changes we have made to our CSA, with our animals, our irrigation, our apprenticeship program and so on...read on for an update!
This year was our first offering a Spring CSA and despite the cold start we had plenty of greens and roots to offer each week. We are thrilled that our Summer CSA is sold out, with 150 families joining us this year! Because of the cold, wet weather we have delayed our Summer CSA start date by 2 weeks to June 12th. Our season will still be 20 weeks long, extending the extra 2 weeks into October. This year we will once again offer our Fall CSA, for the weeks running up to mid-December, so stay tuned for details about that this summer!
We are excited for our 2nd Annual Robinette Solstice Party on Saturday, June 15th from 3-10pm! Join us for the best of soul, funk and R&B with Josh Hoyer and the Shadowboxers and opening act Jack Hotel, both from right here in Lincoln! We'll have Robinette food artfully prepared by Rolling Fire Catering, locally made dessert from Gelato to Go, local beer from Blue Blood Brewing and wine from WunderRosa Winery just down the road!
TICKETS ARE ON SALE MONDAY MAY, 27TH! Check out our website for more details...
Old Cheney Road Farmers' Market
Each Sunday through October we are at the Old Cheney Road Farmers' Market from 10am to 2pm! This is a fantastic producers only market, offering lots of fresh veggies, cheeses, flowers, bread and baked goods, jams, honey, pasta, and more! Our stand is at the very West end of the market, so be sure to walk the whole loop and say hello!
*NEW this year at the Old Cheney Road Farmers' Market--our very own grassfed lamb! Each week we've got chops, leg of lamb, ground, and shoulder roast. And don't forget to grab some bacon or other pork cuts from our hormone and antibiotic-free pigs!
Good Life Fitness Market and CSA
This year, we offered a second Summer CSA pick up at Good Life Fitness on 3rd and Van Dorn. Along with our CSA pick up we will be bringing extra veggies and eggs for a mini-market on Saturday mornings from 9-11am. Check our Facebook page regularly for updates and info on what we'll have at the mini-market. It's a great opportunity to get an early morning workout in and then grab your veggies for the weekend!
As always, thanks for your support, we are thrilled to be your Farmers!
