Farm Connect Order List - 9/18/2008

Here's a link to more information for those of you not familiar with the Farm Connect/Locavore delivery service:

Farm Connect/Locavore Deliveries

And now, on to this week's delivery info. from Summer @ Dee Creek Farms!

I want to start this out by saying that anyone and everyone can order from our deliveries! Some folks have asked in the past couple of weeks if it was only for people with a CSA, and it's not! CSA's have prior commitment to our veggie boxes, pre-ordered eggs and cheese, and weekly chicken. You still can order produce, eggs, and chicken when available (and anything else!), so please don't hesitate to join in on our community-focused deliveries!

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. ~S

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

Vancouver Food Co-op Harvest Dinner Tickets, $50/each
With lots of information on Dee Creek Farms "Calendar" page, you'll find out quickly that you want to be here! The dinner is made with 98% locally produced foods (think Clark County). There will be a silent auction, wine, and a lovely slideshow presentation of contributing farms, and of course great company! I will have some on Thursday evening, but few!

Aged Feta, $5.50/container retail, $5.00/container
CSACreamy 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!

Eggs, $4/dozen retail, $3.75/dozen CSA
We will fill DCF egg CSA's first. We may have more Greyfield Farm eggs with us, too, so should have plenty to go around! Also recycle your DCF egg cartons with us! If you are hoping to sign up for the egg CSA in September, be sure to let me know! If you're hoping to start a new egg commitment this week, could you email me to refresh my memory?
