Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery - 10.30.08

Another week, another delivery of farm fresh goodies thanks to the hard working folks @ Dee Creek Farm!

Our Backup, Second, couldn't-be-happy-without-another Autumn Food Preservation class will be November 9th, 2pm, in Orchards/Vancouver (thanks everyone who offered to host!). If you'd like more information on the class, or would like to register, please contact me, and confirm with $25/person, which can be mailed to the farm, or brought to deliveries Thursday eve! If you think you're signed up, and haven't paid, be sure to contact me immediately. This class is almost full!

This Saturday there is a cheesemaking class out in Brush Prairie. It starts at 11am, and goes until 2pm, with a lunch and cheese "spread" included. You can find detailed info on the Calendar on our website.

Anyone and everyone can order from our deliveries, not just "subscribers"! To any newcomers on the e-list, welcome! Also rest assured that all farms contributing to our deliveries all meet several standards: chemical-free, sustainable, natural, family farming... If you have questions about any of them, don't hesitate to ask, or check them out! ~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!

Aged Feta, $5.50/container retail, $5.00/container CSA - block or crumble
Creamy block or crumbles of unpasteurized aged feta from DCF to top your salad, pasta, or olive ciabatta. Try it in scrambled eggs, lasagna, in a bowl of beans, or top a pizza!

$4/dozen retail, $3.75/dozen CSA
We will fill DCF egg CSA's first. Extra's only available first come, first served. Please recycle your DCF egg cartons with us! While eggs may slow down for winter, our next batch will begin late-December, so the lull should be short!

Raw Honey,
Gallon/$32, Half-gallon/$18, Quart/$12, Pint/$7
Taking orders NOW to be picked up for deliveries next week (not this Thursday). Raw honey in glass (sometimes plastic) jars form Honey House Farm in Brush Prairie - super local! Great for allergies!

Not Available At Deliveries, but great local folks joining efforts:

Organic Chicken Feed,
There is a farmer who would like to start a co-op for monthly buying of certified organic layer feed from Concentrates at a 15% discount (which would make it $20.74 per bag at todays price). If you're interested, let me know. There needs to be enough folks to make it worthwhile. We're about a quarter of the way!
