First CSA pick up of 2015

Hello All I usually like to get these posts up on Monday but this first CSA box has been challenging! Remember all of that rain/hail/tornado warnings that we had last week? Our farmers had them too. Which meant the contents of the boxes and bags changed a few times. This program is so important for our spray free and organic producers. You should have seen the tired but happy and grateful faces when our producers delivered product for this first CSA. Without this program and your support, many of them would be spending much less time farming, and much more time trying desperately to find a home for their beautiful products! So Thank you!
