MCFC CSA 2019: Delivery 4 Proposed Produce

A note from our farmers:

Hello from Hepworth Farms!

As predicted the weather took a turn this week-and it was HOT!! There were many challenges on the farm in regards to dealing with the heat, and thankfully experience and precaution helped us immensely this week. We have in place an intricate irrigation system with a highly experienced team to maintain and troubleshoot water issues. Our nutrient rich, healthy soil, also aids in supporting plant health during heat waves. In addition we always take the utmost precaution with our beloved workers to ensure their safety in the field, providing sufficient water, breaks, and scheduling picking early in the morning to avoid heat stroke and dehydration during the hottest hours.
Needless to say, we got through it and are happy for the cool down these past 2 days- it’s been a relief!
