Mornings are getting cold at the farm. But such a welcomed change. When you eat seasonally their is certain produce that you don’t get until a certain time in the year. At this moment, the perimmons are making their arrival. We grow couple trees of Hachiyas and one Fuyu.

CSA Members and all previous! Its time to come take a walk at the farm. Their has been many changes and it’s worth a tour. This week we are planting our new field of Strawberries, majority in Albion and some Seascapes.

This week in your share is Tomatoes, Radish, Kale, Lettuce, Braising Mix, Winter Squash, Onion, Baby Fennel, Tatsoi.

For the Family, more of Braising Mix, Lettuce, Winter Squash, Lipstick Peppers, Leeks.

(their is always a slight chance for last minute changes.)

Thanks for your support.

HEADS UP! We will be offering a Fall/Winter Extended Season. November 22nd until December 15th.
