Week #15 — Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA Member,

We want to say Thank You to all CSA members who made the trip and were able to join us this past weekend for our annual farm visit. The weather was just beautiful, and we enjoyed seeing everyone. Thank you to Big Top Tent for all the tents, tables and chairs, Paradis to Go for the delicious pulled pork and chili, See and Bee kitchen for the buttermilk rolls. Thank you to the vendors who joined us Heather Ridge Farm, and Lewis Waite Farm. Also, a special thanks to the CSA members who brought such delicious potluck items! Check out our Instagram and Facebook page for some farm visit photos.

This week will feel more, and more like fall. Coming in your shares this week is cabbage, potatoes, carrots, onions, winter squash, and more. You will notice your bags are starting to feel a bit heavier as well head into September. We always like to remind everyone that due to the tremendous amounts of rain we had so far this summer please use or freeze your shares up right away. Items will not hod as long due to the excessive rain we have received.
