Here's the latest locavore delivery list from Dee Creek Farm. And don't forget about the Keri Noble concert taking place out at the farm on Memorial Day! Here's the good word from Summer @ Dee Creek:
The port-a-potty's are here, and the party tent is coming Friday. This concert on Monday's going to be a blast! My Auntie is bringing down her karaoke machine so we can embarrass ourselves when the official show is o'er. Should be quite a hoot!

When: Monday, May 25, 2009, 4:30 p.m.

Bring: a snack or appetizer to share, non-alcoholic beverages (or purchase Hot Lips Sodas at the farm), and a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.

For those of you who have hoped to place an order for our poultry but have not gotten a confirmation back from me, we are not taking any more pre-orders. This does not mean that we may not have extra's down the road this season, but we can't take more pre-orders, just in case. There is a farmer in east Vancouver that I can point you to if you email me your interest. I'm so sorry! I wish we had more hands!! ~S
Dee Creek Farm Cheeses, from start to finish
The containers we've been using have grooves that seem to be stealing all of the cheese (or leave us all licking the containers out instead of being polite and adult-like), so by consumer demand and desire to consume all of the cheese that we can, we're using clear, round tubs now, which are excellent for reusing for food storage as well! They look smaller, but don't let that fool you - they carry the same amount of cheese we've been sharing.

Natural Suds 'n' Stuff,
Both of the soaps below are crafted by Summer at DCF with quality coconut, olive, palm, and essential oils. Handmade & individually cut, these bars are mild on your skin, and amazing to your nose!
Egyptian Geranium, $4.50/bar - Fresh floral scent, similar to rose. Geranium is said to have psychologically balancing effects and some like to use it for skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and shingles. Historically it was used to treat menopausal and other women's problems.
Egyptian Geranium Lotion Bar, $6/bar - this was made with jojoba, sweet almond & emu oil, beeswax, and a few other goodies, this lotion bar is particularly excellent for anyone with skin sensitivities and/or many other issues because of the Egyptian Geranium essential oil & emu oil. It's rather expensive to produce, so this would best be used as a 'medicinal' bar, rather than an every day bar.
