True to the spirit of PB Inc's mission of "raising the barn" together, we are sending you a call out to help Common Hands Farm Project, longtime farmer vendor at the Philmont Farmers' Market, meet their CSA shares goal. 
Dan and Tess have 10 CSA shares offered this month to supporters and shoppers at our market.  We hope this will be of interest to you!
Why does this make sense?  Because buying a CSA share with Common Hands Farm Project does lots of things all at the same time with one CSA share purchase!
  • It significantly helps Common Hands finance the seeding and planting of their farm located on 23B in Claverack for the 2013 season
  • It supports local farming
  • It supports the Philmont Farmers' Market as a weekly pick up venue for CSA which is good for other vendors and market activity
  • It brings you to our market which is always good
  • It puts a face to food by talking with Dan & Tess every Sunday about the food you would be eating!
  • It supports our market's Free vegetable EBT choice table donated by Common Hands Farm Project every week - thank you guys!
  • You're not only buying food but buying into the seasonal journey
  • You're buying into food grown with love and a farm full of creativity
  • And because, if you can support a CSA farm, it's the right thing to do in Columbia County!
Here's a sampling of Common Hands Farm Project at the Philmont Farmers' Market since 2010.

Unforeseen circumstances have made our 2013 CSA memberships very important this year. Our expenses have become somewhat greater than we had planned for this year slightly compromising our ability to resume our operations to their proper capacity, and are therefore much more dependent on the dedication and support of the community in pursuing a lifestyle dedicated to eating fresh and local all the time. We are asking for your help at a time of need; the early spring when most of our pre season expenses occur. We currently have a goal of 15 more local memberships this month, including some late returning signups. This is totally do-able, and if we can do this we can cover our initial costs and its all smooth sailing from there.

Now that we have started planting for the season, it helps to have as much community support as possible. If this is something for you, then don't wait, help us launch another successful season of tasty fresh vegetables for the community!

Thank you so much for your support. It affects us immensely

Dan and Tess
