CSA Pickup for 9/30/09

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

I am back from spending a week with all my grandkids, and most especially, my newest grandchild, Liam, who is two weeks old today. It was a wonderful week and I want to thank Sarah for shouldering the work singlehandedly!! She did a great job!

There will be a break in the CSA until Wed., Oct. 14. We will be making cider the weekend before so we will have one final pickup that will include cider and fall veggies.

A reminder: We have turkeys for Thanksgiving!! Now is the time reserve the number you want. They will be available, fresh, just before Thanksgiving.

It looks like very few of you can make the Harvest Dinner, so we will not be having it this year. We are sorry for the disappointment for those who could come!

So here goes:

Wolf River apples 3/# (great for baking and sauce) tomatoes 3/# blueberry jam 6.50/12 oz jar blueberry syrup 8/bottle peppers 3./# summer squash 3/# broccoli 3.50/# (limited amount as the the side shoots are just starting) basil 2/bu parsley 1.50/bu dill 2/bu fennel 2/bu Savoy cabbage 2/# red cabbage 2.50/# green cabbage 2,50/ chard 3/# leeks 3.50/bu potatoes 2.50/half # Carrots 2.50/bu. sunchokes 3/# (have a nutty flavor and very high in Vitamin C – cook like potatoes) pesto !.50/oz swope bread $5/loaf

chicken 3.75/# You can order whole chickens, or quarters. smoked chicken 5.00/# (we will smoke these for you by order-so amazingly delicious!!) eggs 3.50/doz

We have other processed products and yarn for sale. Our CSA members, the Muise family, have put some of their own maple syrup in our store for sale.

Any of our farm products can count toward your share. Harmony Mill Farm products and Muise’s Maple are purchased separately.

Of course, our wines are always available, but can’t count toward your share, as wines cannot be prepaid. Jim has some new selections available this season!!

Please don’t hesitate to email me with any questions.

We are looking so forward to seeing you Wed. from 3-5:30PM. Thank you for your patience at pickup if things get a bit hectic!

Thank you, Charlotte
