Farm Bounty Update

Farm news: The first week of CSA seems to have gone smoothly at most locations last week, a relief! Soon we will all be in the swing of things. 
New (and unusual) this week is, the extra eggs! We have a lot of chickens and they have been laying like crazy (happy hens) so we are giving ALL the VEGETABLE shares AND the EGG shares a full dozen this week. If you are an egg share member, you will take a full dozen instead of your half dozen (if you have 2 shares, take 2 dozens). If you have a vegetable share and are vegan, just give away the eggs to a friend, it’s an extra, free, item.
On the farm we have been busy with U-pick strawberries, if you’d like to partake come on down! We include one free half pint of U-pick for any CSA member. Also we hope you enjoy the herbs in this week’s share. Generally when we include herbs, it will be a small bunch. If you don’t have a recipe that calls for herbs this week that you are making, we recommend putting it in a small plastic bag in your freezer for later use. All herbs freeze very well – to use, just chop them up while still frozen (while crispy with ice!) and use same as fresh.
