This week’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Tomatoes, Sweet Peppers, Kale, Lettuce, Salad Mix, Summer Squash, Chard (on farm) OR Collards (Church Hill)
Sign up is now open for our Fall Farm Share CSA which provides members with a weekly share of vegetables for all of October and November. We are so excited to announce that we have not one but two new pick up locations for our Fall Farm Share, pending enough sign-ups for each spot: Perk! Coffee and Lunchbox in Bon Air will be an additional Wednesday afternoon Farm Share pick up spot and First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond (adjacent to Byrd Park and the Carillon Tower) will be a Farm Share pick up spot for Sunday mornings.
ALSO new for the fall season: Farm Share CSA members that pick up at our farm can sign up for a Dairy Share through Old Church Creamery, picked up at our farm each week. Details on the CSA sign up page.
* Mark your Calendars! *
Our 2015 CSA Member Farm Party will be on Sunday, September 27th, from 2-6 pm.
CSA Members: Please join us on the farm to share food, drink, a members-only farm tour, and a celebration of the 2015 season. Bring some food to share and sit with us for a spell. Drop in for just a bit or stay the whole afternoon. All CSA members should have received an evite. Please RSVP through the evite. Driving directions and information found here.
