Welcome to Week 27!

We'll see all Full Shares, ODD-week Half Shares, Mini Shares and Delivered Shares this week.
Even week members, note we were on vacation for your pickup last week, so we will see you next week on October 10th and 11th. If you would like to pick up a share or just come shop this week, come on in during normal pickup hours.

NEW STORE ORDER-TIME DEADLINE FOR WEDNESDAY PICKUP GROUPS! Details below.


 

BYOB = Bring Your Own Bags. Please put your reusable bags in the trunk of your car so you are prepared should you have to do the pickup unexpectedly (or even expectedly, like you do each or every other week). Although we are thankful to Josh Allen at Companion Baking for supplying an ongoing backup of paper bags for everyone, we think you should all do the right thing and advertise for Fair Shares with the reusable bags we gave you! Josh is the only member exempt from this request. Also, if you borrowed a cloth "guilt bag" at pickup, consider this your guilt trip and bring it back in for the next poor soul who forgot their bags. Thanks!
 

 NEW ONLINE ORDERS TIME DEADLINE FOR WED. PICKUP GROUPS! 

We have moved the Wednesday members' ordering deadline up an hour to 11:00a.m. because noon isn't giving us enough time to pull the reports, gather and pack all the food and set up for the pickups. Please wait until your weekly share items have been added to your cart before selecting any items from the store. You don't have to wait until the newsletter is sent, but keep in mind that the store updating will not have been completed yet. If the store is closed by the time you check, you may logout to browse the store and send us an email, but we may not see it before you pick up because we often aren't at our computers all afternoon.

If you send in your trades and orders and wish to add on or make changes, you may safely do so without it messing anything up. The final cart content is what shows up on the report we use to pull orders.

We've been struggling to have everything ready for Wednesday pickups to start om time at 3:30, so if you're able, come a little later, or if you arrive early to pickup and we're scrambling to finish setting up, feel free to jump in--we're happy to have our community participate in on our Community Supported Agriculture!

Orders from the Store

Keeping the inventory in the store accurate is extra difficult with our system and schedule, so if we are out of something you request, we may contact you if time allows, or send an alternative option. You can always trade it and select something different from the swap items available at your pickup site (sorry, this option is not available to Delivery to Groups members). If you're looking for something you don't see, just email/ask because we might have it even if it isn't in the store.

Delivered share members must order by 9:00am on your delivery day.
Wednesday pickup members must order by 11 on Wednesday and Thursday
pickup members must order by noon on Thursday.

Login to your Farmigo account to swap out the tradable items in your cart.

Besides being a source of vitamins A, C, and K, hot peppers supposedly help burn fat deposits in the body. That alone gets me interested, but did you know that hot peppers are also believed to arrest the growth and division of cancer cells, act as an anti-inflammatory to help in the treatment of migraines, arthritis, and muscular pains, help fight colds, sinusitis, and bronchitis, improve blood circulation, have an anti-coagulant effect, be beneficial for stomach ailments, suppress appetite, combat depression, and in a dried state, kill bacteria and hasten the healing process? Sounds like the next wonder drug, right? Here are some suggestions on how to handle, eat and preserve those hot peppers.Read more
​I adapted this recipe from one that called for rice, tomatoes and leftover roasted chicken, versus polenta, tomatillos and ground chicken. You can also make this vegetarian, and feel free to substitute any way you wish. I love poblanos because they pack a little bit of heat and a lot of flavor without rendering your lips numb, like jalapenos tend to do. Although, I do often stuff both jalapenos and poblanos to eat at the same meal, so I guess I kind of like that numb lip thing (no it doesn't shut her up).Read more
This recipe is from the fabulous Jerusalem : A Cookbook - By Yotam Ottolenghi‎ . The photos make you immediately want to be preparing (or at least eating) the recipes you're looking at. This is the first recipe I tried from the book, and probably the closest I've come to following a recipe in a good long time.Read more
Nobody could believe this was carrot tops--yeah, the ones that usually end up in your compost instead of your chicken broth. Use as a dip for veggies (like the carrots whence the greens came), a spread for crackers, or toss over pasta, meat, fish, rice, etc. An easy, basic pesto recipe that replaces the basil with carrot tops. Simply delicious.Read more
According to Jamie, this recipe is a great excuse to eat horseradish! Mmmm.Read more
Once again, member Joanne McAndrew has come through with another winning recipe find, this time from BudgetBytes.com. There are so many Fair Shares ingredients that could be used and/or substituted here, it's almost like it was made for us.Read more
