a week’s worth of bountiful produce just for you…

Greetings friends,

We’ve had an amazing start to the CSA this year and we have you to thank for it’s success!  We hope you’ve been enjoying all the fresh tender goodies that late Spring and early Summer have to offer.  The summer bounty is on it’s way with flowers appearing on all the squash, cukes, peppers and beans and young tomatoes forming on the vine.  If there are any recipes you swear by or have tried for the first time you can email it to us and we can post it on our blog.  Which reminds me, have you been checking in with us on the blog?   We recently posted a recipe for Kale Chips and some lovely photographs from our volunteer day back in May.  Too adorable.


Wolf Carr’s bees are buzzin’ all around the farm these days..

Also, a big thanks for all of you for bringing your crates back last week and of course, for your appreciation and smiles.  We really love what we do and couldn’t be more happy to be able to share it with you!  We appreciate the wonderful communication about pick ups – whether it be a friend picking up for you, or that you will be out of town etc – it really makes our days easier and more efficient when we’re harvesting for those who will be picking up.

That being said, a few people have asked about 4th of July which is a week from Wednesday.  Our pick ups/drop offs won’t be changing that week – everything will be just as it always is.  But, if you will be out of town & would like your box donated or will have someone picking up for you that week, just let us know by Monday, July 2nd.  Normally, if you are taking a vacation or will have other folks picking up your box, 24 hours notice works just fine for us!

Potato-ville it all it’s glory!


Tomatoes!  It’s not too late to plant tomatoes.  We have some beautiful organic, heirloom varieties in 1 gallon pots for sale.  We are saving all our pennies for a doe eyed Jersey cow.  So, we suggest if you love fresh butter, milk or cheese you should buy a tomato or two, if not for you, for a friend!  They are $5 a piece and are perfect for planting out in a garden or potting up into a large container on a patio.  We’ll have them for sale at our SE location (13th & Ankeny) tomorrow and at our farm for the rest of the week.

We look forward to seeing you all in the coming days.  Until then, if you have any questions, feel free to send them our way.  It’s going to be another great week!

Faithfully yours,

your farmers

dirty hands, clean hearts

‘Tis the season… (two for you, one for me, two for you….when we’re picking and filling boxes)

p.s. If anyone has any pint, quart or gallon mason jars lying around (with or without lids) I would gladly accept them for the canning that is about to ensue here on the farm (i.e. jam, pickling, sauce etc)!
