This is an even week and the last week of the 2015 season. Thank you for your continued supported throughout the season. If you’re on Facebook, please head on over to the White Oak Pastures page for up-to-date information on the gardens growing’s on. Holiday meats can still be ordered online and picked up at the farm.
I hope you all have received your CSA application by now. There are a few changes that I believe will benefit everyone and all will enjoy immensely. Please email me to request an application if you have not received one. Thank you to the folks who braved the icky weather two weeks ago and were part of the CSA dinner! It was a wonderful event for both the members as well as us farmers.
If you have questions about the 2016 CSA changes please email me at Mary.Bruce@Whiteoakpastures.com
