We are seriously feeling the "dog days" here; there has been rain all around us but not a drop on the farm. Louis, Ben and Grady have been hard at work in the field getting ready for fall. The sign ups for the produce club are now open however, we do have a few changes.  After much thought, we will not have the Rouses's Southshore delivery location this season; it really stressed both production in the field and processing shed.  We will definitely access this again in the spring and should harvest amounts and membership support come together, we will try again.  In the meantime, many of our core offerings are available through Hollygove market, now open 7 days a week.  For those of you on the Northshore, we will again be at Simplee Gourmet on Wednesdays from 12:30-5:00.  Click on Local Produce Club/CSA for details and to sign up to receive 12 weeks of fresh vegetables from our farm to your table.

Our spring/summer local produce club season is winding down and we are no longer accepting memberships.  We will be rolling out the fall/winter season signups at the end of August with the first deliveries taking place in late September.  The typical share of our produce club entitles you to 6-8 items per week in a quantity sufficient to feed a family of four. The produce you receive will vary each week; we are growing over 30 types of vegetables each season.  Please join our mailing list if you are interested in receiving notices about our program.

We had our first delivery yesterday to Simplee Gourmet in Covington and the harvest was a big hit.  The share consisted of:  broccoli, red mustard, carrots, yellow beets, lettuce mix, spring onions, watermelon radishes and parsley.  We still have shares available at all three locations, so don't miss out on eating fresh.
