We are very excited to begin a new season.  We have instituted a few changes this year to increase our efficiency and grow our business.  You may have noticed that we have a new CSA Account Manager, Kendra.  Kendra began as a CSA workshare member and worked diligently to set up our new online ordering system and make our website easier to use and more beautiful.  Kendra is a huge blessing to our business.  She will be your liaison for ordering, payments and overall CSA needs.
We are so excited about our online ordering system.  It is much easier for us to track your orders and accounts and we feel it will also be very user friendly.

Another new official addition to our team is Mike.  He is our new Packhouse/Market Manager.  And he is also my wonderful husband.

I am so happy to have help in accomplishing our mission of providing you with healthy fresh vegetables and great customer service.

With the new management additions to the business I will be able to focus on the most important aspect of agriculture… Farming!  I am also pleased to announce that we have hired a fabulous on-site staff this year.  I am really looking forward to working with this crew.

Featured crop of the week:
Swiss Chard

We are featuring Swiss Chard this week because… we have a lot of it. But, also because after winter it is so great to have some color in your vegetable routine. Swiss Chard is high in Vitamins A and C and also in Magnesium and Iron. Chard is in the beets and spinach family and can be substituted for either spinach or beet greens in any recipe. Here are a few recipes we have found to help you discover why chard is so amazing. Enjoy!
