Welcome to Week 33!

We'll see all Full Shares, ODD-week Half Shares, Mini Shares and Delivered Shares this week.

Thanksgiving Schedule

THANKSGIVING IS NEXT WEEK!  Reserve your fresh, pastured turkey by TOMORROW, Wednesday the 14th. Please let your friends and family know they don't have to be Fair Shares members to purchase a Buttonwood fresh turkey through us! You can share the link below with them.

Pickups will be Monday and Tuesday next week at the Mothership, and UCity and Kirkwood shares will pick up on Tuesday the 20th, regular hours.
Fair Shares pickup members may come either day. If you order a fresh turkey, it will be available for pickup at your regular pickup site.
Delivered Share Members: You will receive a double share next week because we will not be sending a share Thanksgiving week.

Thanksgiving Shares
The Thanksgiving shares will include some items for Thanksgiving, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and applesauce, and we'll attempt to get the lists and newsletter out by end of day Friday the 16th, but no promises, it might be Saturday. Everything that is going out on Monday and Tuesday is coming in this week. Because the farmers were all trying to get everything picked before the freeze, we've got a good amount of extra produce available, first come, first served. You may also find a number of wildcards in the shares next week since we'd like to move through the perishables.

GET MILK? We need to know if you want your regularly scheduled milk for Thanksgiving week because we need to order early. If you would like to order cream or extra milk for the holiday food preparations, tell us at your pickup or send a separate email by noon on Sunday the 11th. 



BYOB = Bring Your Own Bags. We are happy to help you out when you forget or are picking up unexpectedly. If you are sending someone to pick up for you, please let them know to bring bags.

Reminder: 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 before you receive the newsletter. 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.

THIS Week Online Store Order Deadlines:
- 11 a.m. for Wednesday pickup groups
- 9 a.m. for Thursday Delivered shares
- Noon for Thursday pickup groups


Thanksgiving Week Online Store Order Deadlines:
- 11 a.m. either Tuesday or Wednesday. We will pull reports at 11am each day. If you order after 11:00 on the day you are getting your share, we will not have collected your info, so please plan accordingly.



If you send in your trades and orders and wish to add on or make changes, you may safely do so up until your ordering deadline 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 on time at 3:30, so if you're able, please 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 our Community Supported Agriculture!

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.

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

More questions? Check here on our FAQ page. The FAQ is located under the Basics tab on the website, in case you need to look it up later.

Our mother's recipe, which Jamie adapted to perfection with happy, local food. I didn't like it as a child. What a fool. This makes awesome cold leftovers, so be sure to make extra!Read more
This sweet, tart, crunchy and nutty cranberry Jello salad may well become a standard on your Thanksgiving table. It's so easy and so good as leftovers.Read more
