About Us / Blue Spoon Farm History: Summer is almost over. The basil was plentiful this year and there are still a few days left to make pesto before the frost kills it all off. Green beans went nutz this year. On September 13 we are hoping to have a crop mob bean pick. We have plenty of zinnias this year too. Artichokes were tasty too. We are hoping to have all of our subscription sales completed by November 1 for the next year. Please see our CSA information At this time we are asking $500 for a share. This includes a 1/2 of a goat, eggs of various kinds as they are available, a turkey, a duck, and veggies while they are in season. We haven't had a good year for turkeys we had some predator issues. However, we won a fencing grant and will start installing a 48" high woven wire perimeter fence after the hay has been cut. Soon! It's a bit late to pre-order a Christmas Goose for this year or a Thanksgiving Turkey but call to see if we haven anything available. We are accepting preorders for next year. You order it and I'll grow it. It takes almost a year to get a bird to full size. Thank you to everyone who ordered in 2012. A farm cannot be sustainable without customers. The Blue Spoon Farm is a small family farm in central New York. Utilizing 16 acres of flat open pasture land. Like many farms, this one was once 150 acres raising dairy cattle and later beef cattle. We have an English style drive through barn built in the 1890's. We are working to build a diverse and sustainable farm using permaculture principles and holistic management practices. Established in 2009, the Blue Spoon Farm is young. Each year we try out new ideas and document what works and what does not. We offer shares in our farm products. Each share will get 1/2 a goat, a turkey, a duck, and a dozen eggs a week as they are available. CSA members are also allowed to come star gazing or bird watching on the property by appointment. At the Blue Spoon Farm we do not use chemical pesticides or fungicides on our vegetables or in our animal feeds. We are not a certified organic farm. All of our animals are treated humanely and are all allowed access to pasture when it is available and green. We practice rotational grazing with our goats in an effort to provide the animals with the cleanest pasture. We strive for all of our hay to be produced on the farm, organically.
