I have sold out of pre-ordered chicken CSA's. That said, we have only pre-sold only a portion of what's on the field, 'just in case'. This way we do not over-commit. So there should be extra's, which I'll post in emails. The first batch will not be until the last week of May (and the first week in June). Remember to bring me paper shreds for bedding if you happen to have some!
One of our young lady customers, Lana, is offering tomato starts at $2.50 for a 4" pot, $4.60 for a 6" pot. She can bring them to deliveries on the 23rd, I believe (but order from her directly). There are many great varieties. Check out her website at: http://lanastomatoes.50webs.com/index.HTM
Be sure to mention Dee Creek Farm when registering for the Rainbarrel Workshop on 5/12 - the're leaving us a little extra room for seats! Also, the Clark County Dairy Goat Association is hosting a cheese making class on May 1st at the CASEE Center in Brush Prairie. Mary Rosenblum is an amazing instructor, and a great resource! You will also get to taste a 'fleet' of cheeses! Membership is $15, which gets you into class, or you can pay for class without joining.
Check out our recent blog about the last Herbal Class, too! We're scheduling another, as that one sold out quickly! We're planning on 4/24, possibly at the Farm (preference?) Details coming! Are you interested? ~S

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!
