Important Farm Pick up and Delivery Information
CSABucks Members & Traditional CSA Members Picking Up at Fair Oaks – This week, the farm store will be open on Friday, 3pm -6pm, and Sunday, 10am -2pm.  We are opening and closing the farm store earlier this sunday so we can prepare for our first Field-to-Plate Tasting Dinner this season!  For those of you who haven’t yet signed up, you don’t want to miss Chef Mackenzie Kitburi who will be cooking up a veritable feast which is sure to delight the culinary senses!  There is still room to sign up so we hope to see you there!
Traditional CSA Members —  Please don’t forget to leave an empty bag at your drop site when you come to collect your share each week so we can fill it with the next week’s share!  We wouldn’t want you to have to skip a share because there is no bag for us to fill.
