Mint Tea (our evening delivery location at 21st & Main St.) is now serving food! They serve food Monday-Saturday from 8am-6pm, Sunday 10am-3pm. Anna Petruolo is chef'ing -- if you don't know Anna, you'll get a chance to meet her at the VFC Harvest Dinner on 9/19th! More info coming on that! Meanwhile, visit Mint Tea for some yummy foods, made with many local foods -- be sure to request DCF cheese ;-)

The "CSA" discount pricing options are for people who pre-pay for the month, and pick up weekly. Ask for details! You’ll find us this week in our brown/grey minivan. ~S

To order, click here and specify what you would like.

All checks go to "Dee Creek Farm", or bring cash.


We fill pre-orders first, then it’s first come, first served! We do mostly pre-orders at deliveries, rather than Farmers Market style.

Please help us in this by pre-ordering what you can!

This means that your last CSA date will be 10/25 instead. For folks who get PRODUCE, we are taking this week off, and will see you next, through 10/31! For all CSA'ers, this week and next are when the second half of your CSA payment is DUE.
