Farm Connect Delivery - 8/21/08

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

We'll be at the Vancouver Farmers Market on Saturday!

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!
