Fruits of Labor 11/3

Posted 11/3/2016 12:21pm by Chris and Aeros.

Howdy Folks,  

We are excited to start the Autumn/Winter CSA with a delicious and bountiful share.  We got half the members we were hoping for, but several more folks have said they are waiting for the farmers market season to end, and then they will join. So note if you have any friends or family that are still interested in joining we still have more shares available and the price will be prorated!  

Our walkin cooler is almost a ¼ full of carrots. They are delicious and so bright orange.  This is our time of year for carrot eating!  Roasted carrots, steamed carrots, carrots in everything, carrot soup, etc!  

The pick up sites that we have for this and probably next share on the 17th are tentative.  We are currently trying to organize pick up sites that will be able to keep the produce from freezing in the months of December and January.  If you have any suggestions for your neighborhood pick up site, please shoot us an email.  

Coffee: we don’t have our shipment yet, so you’ll be getting double with the next share.  

Maple Syrup orders:  I’m not sure if we’ll have them for next share or not. I have yet to hear back from David Yeany.  I’ll keep you posted!  

Pastured Pork:  Those of you who put in an order for pork cuts. These will accompany your next share.  We ask that you drop a cooler at the pick up site the day before the pick up, so we have somewhere to put it and keep it frozen.  

Bacon:  Those of you who purchased a Bacon Share this is the first of three deliveries. There will be a cooler at your pick up site, please take your bacon out of the cooler and leave the cooler.   Thank you all for joining us for this cool season eating experience.  All feedback is welcome.  We hope that you enjoy.        

Your Farmers,

Chris, Aeros and the Who Gang
