Here's a list of all the tasty locally produced and grown goodies you can order from Dee Creek Farm's locavore delivery service this week:
Spring is here! Eggs are coming in like there's no tomorrow, so please be sure to recycle ALL egg cartons at deliveries. Even if they're not ours, several of the other farmers can still use them. Remember, too, that Egg CSA's are due this week. We also have room for more, if interested. Bulk up for the weekend celebrations!
Rainbow Egg Farm would like to start their own egg CSA (reduced rate, committed - not 'sold out', etc) out at their place in East Vancouver. If you're interested, I can forward your interest on to them. Their hens are raised with no soy added to their diet. We'll continue supplying their eggs through deliveries as long as orders are up for them!
Maple syrup still won't be here by Thursday. Sorry for making you wait. The anticipation is killing me, too, as I've licked my pint dry. Literally, with my fingers. I couldn't help myself. Soon, tho'! I had my Maine friend bump the order up a smidgen, too, so there should be a little extra if you missed ordering. Wait for details!
Check out the great deal from Nature's Choice on fresh mushrooms & wild greens. Maybe now would be a good time to enter our recipe photo contest (which includes a pound of shiitakes), as per my most recent blog entry. Please try to e-order befor Thursday at 11am. That's been working really well! ~S
We have LOTS of eggs this week: Dee Creek Farm, Creative Outlet (certified naturally grown) and Rainbow Egg Farm (soy free). Order fast for first dibs. DCF eggs are generally sold out to our "Egg CSA-ers" -- if you want onboard, I can give you more info and get you started!
