Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard and Winery,
Who can believe it! It is time for sign-up for shares in the 2008 season. We want to thank those of you who signed on early to enable us to take advantage of the Fedco discounts. We were able, thanks to you, to save significantly on sprays and amendments, which are big ticket items.
Now it is time to plan the garden and order seeds, so we hope you can get your payments in as soon as possible and this will help us know who is joining for this season. We also welcome your input on varieties of veggies you want to have available and any other thoughts you might have on how we can improve our CSA.
The price will remain the same for this season: $10, $20 and $30/week shares X 14 weeks. If you have any questions please call me at 565-2312 or email me. Our address is: Shalom Orchard, P.O. Box 4, Franklin, ME 04634.
We are interviewing apprentices now and I will keep you informed. We are happy Khimba and Jessica are still with us and my niece, Sarah Charlotte, will join us again this summer for a few weeks. We hope some other old friends will be with us as well.
We are looking forward to another wonderful season of growing organic vegetables and fruit, chicken, lamb and eggs for you!
Thank you so much for your support of Shalom Orchard and Winery!!
