2015 Fall CSA – Week 31

Week 31

This is an odd week.

As for this week we have so many beautiful greens to offer. I hope that your fridges are filling up with yummy greens and that your dreams are filled with sautés, stir fry, soups and many other wonderful meals including these greens.

For all of those lovely creatures that have sent in their RSVP we are delighted to host you on farm. Our staff is whipping up something wonderful for you.

We are in the home stretch and as such we are planning out our 2016 CSA program. I hope that you will join us for another wonderful year of growing and eating.
