New this week - muskmelons!

*Harvest list is subject to change weekly. This is our best estimation of the week's shares. Thanks for understanding!

Please note! NO FRUIT SHARES this week! The peaches split due to the heavy rains last week. Should resume next week, and continue to the end of the season.

 

CSA Extras :  2nds tomatoes may be available for purchase in the barn on your pickup day. We have begun picking in the field, where there are more sort-outs. Members can purchase these blemished tomatoes for $1/lb in the barn, as available. We will begin taking orders for those who want bulk amounts for making sauce, etc. when we have greater quantities available.

Tote bags, jarred goods can also be ordered. Otherwise you may ask Heidi if you would like to purchase Good Farm tote bags, or any other extra vegetables in the barn. Certain items may be limited and/or not available. Thank you!
