CSA and Farm Sales List for this week

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard, After the cold and wet Spring we are finally starting harvest next week! We look forward to seeing you all again and growing for you this season. Bring the kids to see the lambs and baby turkeys. We look forward to introducing you to our apprentices Chelsea and Caitlin who are great workers and without whom, none of this would happen.

CSA will be picking up on Wednesdays from 3:00 to 5:30 PM. We are promoting more sales from the farm this year, so for those of you who might just like to come by and pick up something that looks interesting, please come anytime. John Pierce of Harmony Mill Dairy in Waltham is willing to fill orders on his delicious products and deliver them here, so please email me if you want me to order from him any week. You don’t have to be in the CSA to order.
