Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
How quickly the summer is flitting by! We hope all of you are enjoying to the fullest! We are in the “weed stage” of the season. Lots of time is spent pulling weeds, in addition to harvesting. I am so grateful to our dedicated workers here! Alex Scarlotos, the son of one of our CSA families will be with us for the next 3 weeks, while his family is at camp at Abrams’ Pond. He has worked here for a couple of years and we look forward to his help again this year!

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.
