Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery List - 10/2/2008

Here's the farm connect/locavore delivery list for this week. Brought to you by Summer @ Dee Creek Farm and the Vancouver Food Co-op. Hurry up and take advantage of this great resource for locally grown, fresh food. Fall is knocking at the door and the growing season will be over before we know it.

To place an order, just e-mail or call Summer.

Remember that 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 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!

$4/dozen retail, $3.75/dozen CSA
We will fill DCF egg CSA's first, and there may not be a lot of extra this week beyond that. Also recycle your DCF egg cartons with us!
