News From the Farm – October 31, 2014

Well, with the prediction of snow today, it is beginning to be obvious that our season is quickly coming to an end. We will have the market tomorrow and our final Saturday will be November 8th. Again, be sure to try and use up the rest of the funds on your CSA cards as we are unfortunately not able to apply those to winter shares or next year’s season.

A few other bits of news…

Organic Apples for Sale – We still have organic apples at the market this weekend for purchase by cash only. We only have the Royal Gala variety available. The cost is very good at $1 a pound.

Honey & Eggs for Sale – We still plan to have eggs and honey available for sale the next two weeks so if you are interested, please bring cash or check to pay for those items.

We are so thankful to have you all as subscribers and hope you have fully enjoyed the produce from our little family farm. We love getting to know each of you and serving you!

We wanted to let you know that we believe the last week will be hosting the market will be Saturday, November 8th. So, be sure to start using up the rest of the funds on your CSA cards as we are unfortunately not able to apply those to winter shares or next year’s season. Stock up on storage veggies like carrots, winter squash, potatoes, and onions or freeze veggies like Brussels sprouts.

A few other bits of news…

Order Quick! Storage Shares – While our regular share season will come to an end around November 8th we always plant extra storage veggies for a one-time winter share delivery in December. The storage share averages 40-50 pounds and has Beets, Carrots, Cabbage, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Onions, Popcorn, Winter Squash, Oranges (Florida-grown/organic), eggs, and possibly a few other items if they store well for us (turnips, pie pumpkins, radishes.) The cost is $50 for the share and it will be delivered to your home about a week or so before Christmas. Please consider the share and let us know as soon as possible how many you would like – we usually run out so get your orders in early!

Organic Apples for Sale – We will have organic apples at the market this weekend for purchase by cash only. We will have Gala and Ida Red varieties available. The cost is very good at $1 a pound.

Cheese Available!

The milk used to make the cheese is sourced from grass-fed cows. Anyone interested, we ask that you place orders by this Saturday at 6pm.
