The applesauce was made and canned by us.  It is not sweetened.  Enjoy the eggplant - the last of the year.  We have some great sweet long roasting peppers.  They are delicious.  The pumpkin is decorative and also will make great ;pumpkin pie!

 

Next week is the last of the fall session.  Remember if you want to continue to get CSA boxes each week you must go to the website and sign up for the Extended Fall session.  The Extended Fall session runs from October 26 - November 21.  There will be deliveries to all stops, except St. Mark's Episcolpal  All the Friday stops will be delivered on Wednesdays for the Extended Fall session.

 

 

Check out the store for our great fall vegetables and apples.

We are not going to be able to offer the same great deals on bulk apples this year.  Last year there was abundance, but this year the trees took a break so we do not have the extra apples.

We also now have the turkeys ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We grew our own turkeys this year.  We have 70 turkeys who are eating us out of house and home.  order one now on the store for delivery for thanksgiving.  you can choose any pick up spot to pick up your turkey.  please let me know on the store order where and when you will be picking up.  We are also requesting a $15.00 down payment for the turkey orders.  Once the 70 birds are gone, they are gone!  So order and reserve your turkey soon. 

if you have any questions about anything, please let us know.

See you this week!
