Siena Farms' 2014 Sweet Corn & Fruit
Farm-Share F.A.Q.'s
(Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What will my eight-week Sweet Corn & Fruit Farm-Share consist of?

A: Your weekly Corn & Fruit share will be a half-bushel box (same size box as Siena Farms' vegetable shares) and will be approximately half full of Brookdale Farm sweet corn (one dozen ears on average, depending on ear-size) topped with a seasonal selection of local orchard fruit from Brookdale Farm and other area orchards. Your fruit selection will showcase New England favorites such as peaches, white peaches, nectarines, pears, plums, and a variety of late summer and early autumn apples.

Q: Where is Brookdale Fruit Farm, and what is their connection to Siena Farms?

A: Brookdale Fruit Farm (brookdalefarms.com) is a 7th generation family farm in Hollis, NH. Farmer Chris of Siena Farms has come to know Brookdale through his daughter Siena's close friendship with eight-year-old Hollis, a member of Brookdale's 7th generation. The Hardy family, who owns and farms this large, beautiful orchard in southern NH, really know their craft, and grow some of the most beautiful local fruit – and sweet corn – we've seen and tasted. We are excited to nurture a relationship between our two farms and provide you, our CSA members, with access to these sweet crops that we don't currently grow at Siena Farms.

Q: Does Brookdale Farm grow its produce organically?

A: Some, but not all. As you probably know, sweet corn and fruits are much harder to grow organically with consistent quality than the wide variety of diversified vegetables we grow here at Siena Farms. Brookdale practices IPM (Integrated Pest Management) in the farming of their corn and their orchard fruit, and was one of the first orchards in New Hampshire to adopt IPM strategies. The Hardys are very talented, experienced farmers who care a great deal about their farmland, their customers, and the quality of their product.

Other questions? Please check out the F.A.Q. links here on our website for our other Farm-Share options, find us in person at Copley or Siena Farms South End, and/or call the farm at (978) 261-5365. Cheers, and Happy Eating!
