Hi members!  Welcome to our new members this week – we are so glad to have you! Summer holidays are coming up – if you are traveling, don’t forget to put your shares on hold. Just a reminder – we have CSA vacation August 11 and 18 – there will not be any CSA those weeks – please mark your calendar and make arrangements to feed your family if you are not on vacation those weeks. We hope you are loving the glorious abundance of summer fruit!! 

Home Delivery – Richmond home delivery – your delivery day is TUESDAY this week. 

Home Delivery Cooler Bins/Porch Pirates – Please try to have a cooler or bin out with ice for delivery people to leave your share in – some of you still do not have one out for us. With warmer temps, this will preserve your share, especially more delicate items. The bin method tucked away from your door (let us know where you want it) also helps to disguise your share if porch pirates roam your neighborhood looking for opportune booty – we have occasionally have shares stolen and we find this method effective. 

Below is the preview menu, subject to change. If there are changes, we will try to update you.  Reminder – if something is wrong with your share/delivery, let us know right away so we can remedy it for you!

Happy Cooking and Eating!

We are excited to bring a new farm this week – Woodside Farms, Hanover VA.  Woodside Farms is located on a gorgeous 150 year old orchard and farm in the Chickahominy Falls over 50 community . Some old urban farm friends are there, so we are happy to be back working with him. 

Rosa’s Garden is back this week – This woman-owned family operation have a story similiar to the Flores family – they started as migrant workers from Mexico in the fields of California, and have worked their way up to farm owners. We have known and worked with Rosa Nunez and her family for years and now support their growing business. Their farm is right in the heart of Hanover County’s famed sandy soil which is perfect for growing delicious Hanover Tomatoes and other veggies.  Here is more on their story, and you can follow them on Instagram and Facebook. 

Happy Cooking and Eating!
