We’re so pumped to be delivering again this week! Thanks for your patience during the Fall transition. There’s alot of news from the farm front – but with the day coming to close I’ll table that discussion for later. And since now the Hunger Strike is over, let’s celebrate seasonality and let the cooking commence. As always, Don’t forget to return your CSA boxes. And here are some pics from around the farm along with a list of what to expect in your share box this week…
