Hello CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

This Wednesday will be BULK BLUEBERRIES PICKUP DAY!! Please email us again with your bulk order. We can package these berries in 5# bags, or they can come in 30# bags. These berries have been individually frozen.

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.

whole milk 2.50/1/2 gal skim 2.50/1/2 gal bottle deposit (one time) 2.75 cream 2.00/1/2 pint ricotta 3.50/#, 2.00/1/2# cheddar (mild or sharp) 6.50/# ricotta-salada 2/1//2 # marscapone (unsweetened) 6.50/#, 3.50/1/2 #

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

Thank you, Charlotte

bulk blueberries

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

As we have been raking in the blueberry barrens, we have found that we have been hit with a late Spring frost, which means that our crop is thin. We have located another source of bulk, frozen blueberries from another organic farm in order to supply your bulk orders.

Please let us know if you have any questions about this. The price will be the same, $3.25/# and they will be packaged in 30# bags.

We will need to arrange specific times for pickup for the bulk berries as we have limited freezer space.

I look forward to hearing from you about this.

Thank you, Charlotte
