Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery - 10/9/2008

As the weather changes, so do our offerings. You'll notice there will be fewer vegetables, and more "comfort foods". This week will be a smidgen down, but you can pre-order honey for next! It'd be best if orders could get in by late Wednesday night, or early Thursday morning..

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 like 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 - block or crumble
Creamy block or 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!

$4/dozen retail, $3.75/dozen CSA
We will fill DCF egg CSA's first, no extra's this week. Please recycle your DCF egg cartons with us!

Raw Honey,
Out this week! You can pre-order for next week: gallon/$32, half-gallon/$18, quart/$12, pint/$7. This honey comes from Honey House Farm in Brush Prairie, in glass (sometimes plastic) jars. Great for allergies!

Heirloom Tomatoes, variety, $2.50/lb -- may only have a week or two left!
Peppers (spicy and sweet), 5 for $1
