Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery - 11.20.2008

Here's this week's Farm Connect/Locavore delivery list. Courtesy of Summer @ Dee Creek Farm.

This is the last Thursday delivery before Thanksgiving! Be sure to prepare for your holiday feast sharing! We have a dairy inspection on Friday, and if all goes well *fingers crossed*, will have chevre (and other scrumptious things) and will post a *holiday special* delivery for early next week since we will not be doing Thursday's delivery next week.

This Saturday, from 10am-2pm, Rhonda Ryder of Blue Rose Dairy in Winlock will be having a hands on class on how to make Chevre and Mozzarella (with tips for yogurt and ricotta) for $35 per person. Lunch will be served, along with other cheeses from local farms, and a dairy tour afterwards, where you can buy cheese, if wanted. If you're interested, RSVP here. We'll plan a carpool from Woodland for those who want to drive up together in our 15 person van. Let me know if you're coming aboard! ~S


Grassfed Beef,
We have some Belted Galloway grassfeed beef from Dee Creek Farm available for sale immediately. If you are interested, you will need to pay for your complete order on Thursday at deliveries, minus cut & wrap (you'll pay the butcher shop this). We are guesstimating the following prices: Cow, $400/quarter. Steer, $350/quarter. If you are interested, I will email you more details, and will need a check for full payment on Thursday, so let's get this show on the road!

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.

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!
