CSA pickup for Wednesday, 8/4 2010

Sorry – I had the date in the header wrong on the last email!

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

I am sorry to get this out a bit late – I just returned from RI for a much needed visit to my children and grandchildren, whom I haven’t seen in 3 months, due to my surgery, etc. I brought two back with me, Kamaria and Caelan, whom some of you have met.

From Harmony Mill Dairy: John Pierce will drop off orders for Wed. pickup. We do this just as a convenience. If you don’t know Harmony Mill Dairy, it is a small dairy in Waltham. The milk is unpasteurized and comes in returnable 1/2 gal. bottles. John Edwards carries this milk as well as other natural food stores. These products do not count as part of your share, they are paid for separately.

We will look forward to seeing those of you who pick up at the farm between 3:00 to 5:30 PM on Wednesday.

Thank you, Charlotte
