Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery 11.13.2008

This week's Farm Connect/Locavore delivery brought to you by Summer @ Dee Creek Farm:

Remember that in an effort to be more efficient, and less wasteful, we're going to stop writing individual receipts, and instead keep a book. If you specifically want a receipt, please let us know when you place your order, if possible.

Our Soapmaking class filled up rather quickly! Not everyone got in that wanted to participate, so it looks like we'll be doing another one of these soon! I'll keep you all in touch!

We've got some great additions below to gear up for the holiday - and winter crops for preserving!

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 yourself! ~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!

Pastured Turkey for Thanksgiving - SOLD OUT
For those who have ordered turkey, I sent a separate email with turkey delivery information, including a "special" one this coming Saturday (with turkeys only), and the usual Thursday deliveries on November 20th (NOT this week). If you think you've paid a deposit for a turkey and haven't heard from me, contact me!

Aged Feta, $5.50/container retail, $5.00/container CSA - block or crumble
Creamy block or crumbles of unpasteurized aged feta from DCF. Try in warm pasta dishes, pear & hazelnut salad, casseroles, bowl of beans. We're still very much hoping to have soft cheeses for holiday specials, and may have to add a special pre-Thanksgiving delivery (will let you know, if so)!

$4/dozen retail, $3.75/dozen CSA
We will fill DCF egg CSA's first (and will get everyone!). 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! Will have extra available through Angie's usual deliciousness & Nature's Choice this week, too - who feeds certified organic feed and kitchen scraps! First come, first served!

Raw Honey,
Gallon/$32, Half-gallon/$18, Quart/$12, Pint/$7
Raw honey in glass (sometimes plastic) jars form Honey House Farm in Brush Prairie - super local! Great for allergies!

Just in time for Holiday meal planning . . . don’t forget mushrooms for your dressing, or huckleberry pie, or berry topped cheesecake (yum!!), the above comes from Nature's Choice, a Vancouver business, operated by a couple who collects & sells wild eats, and prepares naturally preserved foods.

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 1/2+ of the way!
