Reminder: Tomorrow is the first field night of the season!

Come meet our farmers and see where some of your produce is grown at our first Field Night of 2012.
Our June Field Night will take place at the farm of Lester and Martha Hershberger. Their address is 17570 Tavern Road in Middlefield. You can find a farm map here. We will get started around 6:30 p.m., but show up whenever you are able.
Some of our farmers may have extra produce or other farm items on hand to sell, so you may want to bring some cash. You will also want to make sure you have insect spray, and shoes that are appropriate for walking through the fields. 
Our July Field Night will take place at the warehouse and Red Sled Farm.

New! Upgrade to Family Share from Single Share

Did you purchase the 20-week single share, and then decide that you'd like to get the larger, family sized share instead? We now offer this upgrade option that will kick in to increase your share size for 15 weeks starting the week of July 10. Visit our Web site to upgrade your share. 


Deadline extended to July 1 to sign up for 15-week program

We have openings for membership in our 15-week CSA program that begins July 10. Due to the warm spring and a few openings left after the 20-week season enrollment, we have space for more members. Now your family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers have a chance to start receiving their own delicious, locally grown, organic produce. Feel free to forward this e-mail to everyone.
