Welcome to Week 37!

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


Fair Shares Holiday Schedule

Happy Hannukah! We will take off the week of Christmas, so there will be no pickups or deliveries December 26 and 27. We will put your shares on hold so all Full, Mini, Delivered and ODD-week half share members will not be charged for the week. If you wish to donate that week to help pay for this year's (seemingly annual) freezer/cooler failure, feel free to login to your account and remove the share hold. Otherwise know that it is supposed to be there. Having said that, we hope you all will come to our Happy Hour Shopping Day on Thursday, December 27th. Details below.

NEED EXTRA MILK? If you would like to order milk for next week to make up for the one you'll miss the week of Christmas, please let us know this week. We'll be ordering on Sunday for delivery the 19th.

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.

Online Store Order Deadlines:
- 11 a.m. for Wednesday pickup groups
- 9 a.m. for Thursday Delivered shares
- 12:00 Noon for Thursday pickup groups

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.

This chili with meat recipe from Jane Brody’s Good Food Book serves up a great one-dish meal. You can prepare ahead and freeze it. We often double or quadruple it and freeze half. It’s good cold too. Consider adding a variety of meats, including bison and lamb as well as ground beef. Substitute any variety or combination of cooked Bellews Creek and Del Carmen beans for the kidney beans.Read more
This is a recycled recipe that can be substituted with any winter squash variety and grain or legume... Desperate times call for desperate measures, and my refrigerator has never felt so lonely and abandoned as it does now. Rather than despair, I pretended it was creativity rather than lack of supplies that led to last night's meal. It did have a bit of the monochrome blues, but all in all, was quite a tasty dish.Read more
A great winter warmer. It was way too stunning a presentation for a weeknight, but we're worth it. The secret to the stunning presentation is in the toppings.Read more
This is like a pie on steroids, with a delicious flaky crust; and it's impressive to look at.Read more
