Dear CSA and Friends of Shalom Orchard,
September is here and there are only 5 more CSA pickups! In the past we have skipped a week in order to leave pickups for cider and fall veggies. I will let you know if we are going to do that this year.
I made a mistake on Alice’s departure date – she is with us through this week, so you still have time to say goodbye to her. What a gift she has been this year!
So here goes for this week:

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.

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
