December 7 & 9
Did you all find us last week? I meant to tell you - you will find the share in the new retail greenhouse! Sorry if there was some confusion. We've got 2lbs of the best Carrots in this week's share. Here's a little farm Carrot story. For Thanksgiving, we traveled to Cleveland to visit our youngest at college; our oldest flew up from their school. We had a long drive so we didn't want to cart all the extra food home. What did our kids both want? The farm Carrots. I had to peel them and evenly divid them to take back to their dorm and eat on their flight. These carrots are good!!
On to holiday things, have you seen the trees? We have some great choices of Christmas Trees on the farmstand. A brand new load came in on Saturday. CSA members will get $5 off this week! Stop by when you are picking up or at another time in the week when you can gather the family. Just let the Farmstand staff know you are a CSA member when you are paying. ~Jen G
