Due to circumstances which greatly affect SunSmile Farms, we have decided to cancel the CSA and Debit Partnership for the 2012 season.
We have not had irrigation water since August 2011 because of a leak in the pipe under the Rough and Ready Highway. It has not yet been determined who is responsible for repairing this water pipe and, as such, a repair has not yet been scheduled. The repair and maintenance of a 185 gpm water supply is not an easy endeavor. As a result of the water supply problem, we are unable to proceed with our planting as anticipated. We are hopeful that we will be able to do a later planting, but our season will be a late start at best. Our Fall crops of garlic, onions and potatoes have done very well with the rains and we are able to sustain the irrigation with our domestic water.
In addition to the water dilemma, the Spring frosts hit our peach crop hard. Unfortunately, some things in farming are out of our control.
We would like to thank you for your support of the farm. Your support and encouragement is very much appreciated. We will keep you posted as things develop in the future.
Our Farmstand will be open July through October.
Farmstand Hours are:
Tuesday – Friday 10 am to 6 pm
Saturday 9 am to 5 pm
Sunday 9 am to 4 pm
