Locavore Delivery & News from Dee Creek Farm - 8.06.2009

I spent today with other local CSA farmers, setting up the Featured Ag exhibit at the Clark County Fair (which starts Friday, btw). Come by and visit! One of our customers with Sunshine Gardenhouse donated a fantastic greenhouse to use. You should swing by and see it, as well as the rest of the display - it's turing out pretty cool!

Don't forget that it's the first of the month, so egg CSA's are due! And returned cartons would be grand.

We'll have several kinds and quantities of produce Thursday evening. Here's what I know, tho' we may end up with more at deliveries (and I'll email order confirmation emails shortly!):

I'm back from an amazingly relaxing trip to Idaho! My grandma said that a glass is heavier the longer you hold it, and suggested that I set mine down for a little bit, that it will feel lighter when I pick it back up. Alas, I feel refreshed and excellent! Since I've only been home a day, I haven't wrapped my mind around everything for deliveries, but will add more to Wednesday nights Quiz Results email. I know we should have several veggie and fruit options.

Anyone up for helping me make an online shopping cart to make delivery stuff easier? ~S

Remember that in an effort to be more efficient, and less wasteful, we do not write individual receipts, but 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!

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!
