We asked you to hold the date of September 8th for the annual meeting of The Intervale Community Farm Cooperative. We like to give you the “state of the farm,” highlight farming techniques we’ve developed, update you on farm production, donations to food banks, and of course introduce the staff.
This year, in addition to conducting the usual business of board member elections and the annual update, we’re having a party! We’ll be celebrating 30 years of being a CSA and we’ll be celebrating our members since we couldn’t be successful without you!
Thirty years in business, any kind of business, is something to celebrate and acknowledge. From our modest start with a few acres and a few members we’ve grown to more than 50 acres and more than 600 families (or roughly 1500 people being fed per week in the summer.) We were grateful and thankful to be voted Best CSA by the readers of Seven Days and the annual Seven Daysies. We’ve had hard working staff for the 30 years, abundant community support, but most of all we’ve had devoted members. Our party will be a celebration of our members as much as a celebration of our farm.
The party itself? We’ll have Woodbelly Pizza, Full Barrel Cooperative Brewery (the adult beverage part of the festivities), and lots of ICF produced snacks and melons. Other surprises are to come…and may remain as surprises! Hint: there will be music.
