Hello CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

The rain yesterday was very welcome and it is good to see the sun again today! What a great growing season!! We are fortunate to have Jason and Lily join us – they are WWOOFers and will be here for two weeks.

We are picking up lamb this week and I have listed the prices below. Some of you have asked about lamb and now we have it! It will be frozen when we pick it up from the butcher.
