Last Week SOOO Exciting . . .
Each week here at the farm just gets more exciting: we have more items we're harvesting; the crew is getting lots of planting done as the weather warms, dries and then rains again; and Farmer Paul and I are getting out. Last week we ate an extravagent, decadent and delicious meal at Letoile, celebrating Tory Miller's ten year anniversary at the helm. A few more fun outings with friends, winning a gift certificate from the library and some pastries from two of my favorite bakeries - it was a great week.
And this week promises to be just as exciting, if not as rushed. The weather is certainly unpredictable, but each day filled with longer hours of daylight and occasional heat and sun certainly beat those cold days in February :) Please find this week's newsletter attached HERE.
We hope you'll do more than simply read the newsletter, but consider signing up for the JenEhr regular season CSA share. We know that you have lots of CSA farm options in Madison, but we think that our experience, incredible soil and keen attention to putting together great boxes with early and late favorites will move us to the top of your CSA farm options list.

Looking For Summer Help
Farmers Market Help - Looking for someone who loves JenEhr produce and poultry. Someone who likes mornings (we start at 6:15AM) and enjoys helping people put together great meals. Basic math skills needed (although we have lots of simple math rules to help with making change), able to lift 20+ pounds and you'll be on your feet for six hours. The pay starts at $9 per hour, with chicken and produce benefits. We DON'T pay in cash nor "under the table", all JenEhr employees fill out timecards and required tax information. Position runs April through November, with work available at both the Madison downtown/Capitol Square Market and the Westside Market at DoT. Email interest to email@example.com
Crew Help - Two more positions needed at the farm:
1. Farm work crew - this is the lifeblood of the farm, where all the action happens. Must be able to withstand the ever changing weather conditions of Wisconsin summer, lift 50 pounds repeatedly, bend/stoop for working and have a great attitude about your love for working outside.
2. Packshed Manager - If the farm crew is the lifeblood, this position is the heart of the farm. All produce comes through the packshed, where it is washed, packed and readied for distribution. Must be able to lift 50 pounds, stand during the work day and really love organization.
