John Crow Farm CSA - What Happened to Them?

l

A few years ago, we got word of a new CSA in Groton, MA: the John Crow Farm. We signed up and enjoyed great produce for several seasons. Then we signed up for their meat CSA about a year ago and we liked that too.

This past November, we signed up for a meat share, a poultry share, and a vegetable share.

Not long afterwards, Blood Farm burned (it being one of two sanctioned slaughterhouses in the state and, presumably, the butchers used by John Crow Farm, among others).

Then our December meat pick-up was cancelled. We did receive our share in January and February ... but then March pick up was cancelled. They sent out an email saying to stay tuned.

Some 40 days and three emails to them later, we've heard nothing. I just tried calling the phone number on their website and it is NOT the farm phone number. Seems like their Facebook presences is gone too.

So what is going on? I'm getting the creepy feeling like they've folded and are not telling the people who bought into their CSA.

Is this happening to anyone else? Does anyone have any information on them?
