Dear Friends of the Farm,

This is week 18 and you will receive Yukon Gold potatoes, onions, carrots, leeks, eggplant, cabbage or broccoli, bell peppers, specialty peppers, garlic and tomatoes (red, orange and green).

Honey: Those of you who get monthly and bi-monthly deliveries will be getting your last delivery.

Surveys: We value your opinion very much and look forward to reading all your opinions. If the majority of surveys want a quantity change, we will take a look at the size of our shares and make adjustments accordingly, if we can. Same with suggestions for new crops; if we can grow it, we will consider it! It is imperative you tell us your family size, share size and diet. It makes a difference! (If you haven’t filled yours out yet, you can download it here. You will need to print it out, fill it out, and mail it to the farm.) Continue reading
