News from the Farm:  First CSA Pickup -- Wednesday, June 11

The first pickup for the 2014 Season is Wednesday, June 11

Details for the specific locations:

Hawthorne -- 27 Utter Avenue  Hours:  2-7 pm
     There will be a sign that says "Farm Fresh Produce" in the empty lot near the entrance.  There will be a sign-in sheet for members to check their names off.  Member shares are located in the walk-in cooler.  Each black plastic crate is one share.  Members are encouraged to bring a bag to transfer the vegetables to. (We also provide plastic bags to put the vegetables in). 
Shared Shares
     For members splitting shares, the first person arriving can divide the share and place the other share on a table for "Shared Shares" with their partners name on.
Lowland Farm Grass-Fed Meat
   
Anyone may purchase grass-fed beef and pastured pork directly through Lowland Farm.  You may now place your order directly online. We will have your order bagged and ready to go in the freezer. 
Honey & Eggs
     There are also local honey and eggs available to purchase. The price of the eggs is $6 per dozen for pastured, certified organic & kosher eggs and $4 per dozen for farm-fresh brown eggs.  The honey is locally produced by my neighbor and is $6 per 1 lb. jar and $12 per 2 lb. jar.  

For the other pickup locations, the shares will be in plastic bags inside a green canvas bag  or soft-sided cooler (for outdoor locations).  Please ONLY take the plastic bags and leave the green canvas bag or soft-sided cooler behind!!!  Shares must be picked up on Wednesday because there is no overnight refrigeration available!
