Farm Connect Delivery - 9/4/2008

This cool weather is reminding me of what's coming. The sunshine is expected back for the rest of the week, and through the weekend. Though the summer has been short, I'm looking forward to the season of "slowing down". But it also reminds me of much that needs to be done on the farm to prepare for winter!

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

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!

Aged Feta, $5.50/container retail, $5.00/container CSA
Creamy crumbles of unpasteurized aged feta from DCF to top your salad, pasta, or olive ciabatta from Julia Bakery (yum!). The perfect treat for a warm summer day!

Fresh Feta & Tomato Salad, $
Made with NW Organic heirloom tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers, and topped with DCF's feta cheese, this salad makes a scrumptious lunch-on-the-go.
