Here we are at the end of our fall shares.  The time has buzzed by so fast.  We all want to sincerely thank you for you support, kindness and friendship.

We are very excited for season 2018 shares as well some new surprises in our locally grown food endeavors.  We can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you!   We now have 2018 share dates listed for your planning.

This weeks shares shares include a great recipe for Acorn Squash Stuffed With Red Quinoa.  We know you’ll enjoy it!

Share produce:
