Cancellation of Harvest Dinner

Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

It seems that 10/27 is a very busy time for many of you! There were only a very few folks who can attend, soo I have cancelled the dinner with regret.

I will continue to send out emails as we are still harvesting and making cider.. We are taking orders for the chicken and I will let you know when it is ready.

We thank you for all of your support of the farm this season!! We have enjoyed growing organic veggies and fruits, chicken and lamb for you!

We will continue to have eggs, lamb and chicken throughout the winter, as long as it lasts.

Thank you, Charlotte

PS to earlier email re final pickup

Hello CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,

I realized I left a few things out of my previous email. I forgot to include the very important item of fresh cider @ 5/half gall.

Also, please try to give me a good idea of amounts you want on Wed. so we can harvest enough for everyone, without overharvesting things that could stay in the ground like beets, carrots, leeks, brussels sprouts, cabbages. It is very important to give me your lamb orders so I can get them ready ahead of time.

Some of you still have blueberries to pick up. Please tell me how many.

Remember you can use share credit toward chicken which will be ready in several weeks.

See you on Wed.!

Charlotte
