This week you are getting garlic, white onions, white turnips, radishes and summer squash. The summer deliciousness is just beginning! Some crops are starting to catch up because of the hot weather. Each week we should be seeing something new! Very Exciting!!!
Blog: We need a volunteer to take over posting the blog. I know nothing about computers, so I have to rely on someone within the Membership do this for me. It is the same with Facebook. I don’t have anything to do with it (so please do not “friend” me). Members from the farm took the time to set that up and keep it up and running for your enjoyment. Please call me (do not email) and let me know if you want to do this!
Honey: Clark has advised me that all the beekeepers in America have lost 50% of their bees over the last year; including him. He cannot support the current prices that were charged. Across the board, honey prices are going to soar! The new prices for honey are as follows:
Pint ~ $6.50
Quart ~ $12
½ Gallon ~ $22.75
Gallon ~ $43.50
5 Gallons ~ $195
If you would like to cancel your honey order, please send an email to monroefarm.com and Dani will take care of it over the next month (she only comes in once a week). If you want to continue to get honey, you do not need to do anything; your statements will reflect the new charge. For those of you who have monthly and bi-monthly deliveries, your first delivery will remain at the old price and all other deliveries will be at the new price. Thank you for your consideration in this matter!
Volunteers: If you did not get a chance to visit us on a Saturday or Sunday to Volunteer, we have a new opportunity for you! As it turns out, we are short staffed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Working Members start their day at 7am bagging up produce for non-working members. Then they head out for fieldwork afterwards. If you would like to put in your Volunteer time on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, please call me no later than the Sunday before to let me know. We will take your produce out of your current DC and you will take your produce home with you the day you volunteer!
Thank you for taking the time to read the newsletters, they always seem to have something important in them! We hope your Fourth of July is a Bang! Jacquie, Jerry, Alaina and Kyle
