March 19, 2020 – What People Have to Say…
A huge THANK YOU to you, Maydene and Gerald! How reassuring your email is to us. I’ve been thinking of you two, as you get ready for another busy season. Of, how hardworking you are, and share the gifts of your labor. I joined your CSA several years ago, for a myriad of reasons. We love fresh vegetables, and feel supporting those businesses in our little community is vital to all of us. At this time, I am reminded of something my brother said to me, as Mitch and I became members of McDougal’s CSA. Nick said, “you are going to find it invaluable to be a part of something, where you get your products locally.” Right now, this could not be more true. The times are unprecedented, and frightening, but we are ALL connected. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of your CSA. Now, come on Summer!!
Love to you guys,
ABOUT OUR CSA FARM
McDougal’s Farm is an Earth friendly, people friendly farm located just north of Antigo Wis.. We grow a diversified selection of quality produce grown with organic fertilizer, compost, water and sunshine! We do not use synthetic fertilizers, chemicals, herbicides or GMO’s…ever. We use sound sustainable growing practices and pay close attention to our soil health because we know healthy soil grows healthy vegetables and healthy vegetables grow healthy families.
We love catering to our CSA members through our 17 week vegetable program (mid June to mid October). Click here for more information on CSA. McDougal’s Farm has several CSA drop sites conveniently located in Antigo, Rhinelander, Pickerel, Deerbrook and Summit Lake.
Our unique greenhouse is open to the public briefly in early spring. Click here for greenhouse hours. It is filled with earthy mossy delights, hanging baskets and (noncertified) organically grown garden transplants including vegetables, herbs and flowers…..many heirlooms, especially tomatoes. Our carefully selected varieties have been field tested and found to be grower friendly in our northern climate. Looking for unique? Love earthy? Come see us in the Spring.
McDougal’s Farm also host several educational workshops for children, as well as adults. These are usually held in our big sunny greenhouse. Click here for workshops. They vary every year on theme and time, so check back often not to miss the fun.
Peace and good health
Jerry and Maydene McDougal
To Our Current & Future Members:
Dear Members, Our commitment to you and to the land is this: we will grow your food using no chemicals or synthetic pesticides or fertilizers; we will offer a variety of vegetables in suitable quantities for you and your family. In turn, you make a commitment to us, to the environment, and to a healthier lifestyle by purchasing a share in our harvest. By sharing some of the risk (and all of the bounty) associated with growing crops in the north, you are buying shares in all of our futures. Peace and Good Health, Jerry and Maydene McDougal
