This Week's Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery - 9/25/2008

Here's the latest Farm Connect/Locavore delivery list from Summer @ Dee Creek Farm.
What?! You've never heard of Farm Connect??? Well when the farmers' market is closed, it's the BEST way to get the freshest, tastiest locally grown/raised food in Clark County! I am one of the most particular individuals you will ever meet with regards to the quality of the food I buy...especially produce. You will not be disappointed with the quality of your order from Farm Connect. Now go give the folks at Dee Creek Farm a holler, place your order, support local agriculture, and treat your family to some of the best food that money can buy.

Here's a link to more info.

I want to start this out by saying that anyone and everyone can order from our deliveries, not just "subscribers"! I also wanted to address the fact that it's getting dark much earlier, leaving us in the dim by the end of deliveries. We may need to make some time adjustments soon... Please be on the watch! Also rest assured that all farms contributing to our deliveries all meet our standards: chemical-free, sustainable, natural, family farming... If you have questions about any of them, don't hesitate to ask, or to seek them out! ~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!

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!
