Everdale Farm’s CSA is celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2008. Since we started, we’ve benefited from having a solid support from our shareholders.
Here at Everdale Farm, squash works very well as a pioneer crop. We use it at the beginning of our crop rotation when we’re breaking new ground, such as old hay fields, or when we’re tackling fields with heavy weed pressure including twitchgrass (i.e. quackgrass) and other perennial weeds.
