Hello! 

 Its been a rainy week on the farm, but we are still able to get to some good veggies for the CSA! The store is now open. You can place your order any time now through Sunday at 5pm. If you forget, we will still send you a farm choice box so you don’t miss out!

 It was very humid this week. If you received any items that wilted last week, feel free to add on an extra item to this week’s order. Don’t forget to leave your bags, boxes and ice packs out for our drivers to pick up.

 Check out the specialty item store to get your hands on some local items! We are still taking new sign ups for our future CSA seasons! Join while we still have spaces. 

Thanks for your support!

Hello!

 We are very excited to announce that the first spring CSA store is open for orders! Its up earlier than normal, but we wanted to give the new folks time to email us if they have any questions. We have some exciting new items on the list! We also have a CSA specialty item store available for you to order from. These items are from our farm and other local vendors. These items have a price listed and will be added to the balance on you account when you order. Invoices will be sent out every Monday for the specialty items. 

 You should have received an email yesterday explaining your delivery day. All deliveries will be made on Wednesday or Thursday each week. Your delivery day will not change. 

 You will receive a box, liner bag, ice pack and other produce bags for your share. Please set these out each week for our drivers to pick up. As the weather gets warmer, it is a good idea to set a cooler outside for our drivers to put your share into. Make sure it is large enough to fit your share! 

 We hope you enjoy this week's list! If you have free time this weekend, our farm stand has opened for the season! We have a variety of veggies and lots of flowers for Mother's Day!

Stand hours:

Friday 10-6pm

Saturday 10-5pm

Sunday 10-4pm

 Thank you all for your support this spring season!

Hello!

 The final CSA store is now open for ordering. We are sad to see the winter CSA end, but we are looking forward to our new Spring CSA! As usual, if you forget to place your order by Monday morning, we will send you a farm choice. 

 This week you will be receiving only a bag. Please leave out any boxes or other bags you may have for us to pick up. Thank you so much for all your support throughout the winter. We have been able to begin purchasing supplies and planting for our upcoming seasons. We cherish and love our CSA members so much. We pack each share with love and hope you have enjoyed your time with us.
