Preview Fall CSA Week 4

Normally this time of year, we are gearing up for Thanksgiving and our box sales, but this year, we have another full week before we have to start prepping.

Have you pre-ordered your Thanksgiving boxes yet? Just 2 more weeks until the box delivery! Click here to reserve your box(es) for your holiday feasting!

Meanwhile, on the farm we are trembling just a bit over this early and very, very cold spell forecasted. We are still growing crops in our fields and our tunnels and hope many of them will survive.

For our fall CSA members, week 4 will bring:

+ Braising Mix greens

+ Winter radishes

+ Garlic

In addition, we will bring another item or two, to be determined.

Check back Thursday for final share contents and items for Farm Stand sales.
