Some Delivery Days Have Changed!
Check Your Day
Dear CSA Members:

The 2015 CSA season starts tomorrow, June 2. Our routes continue to develop as new members join our program, so some delivery days have changed in the past few days. Please double-check this list to determine which day of the week we'll be serving your zip code or your group site this year. Note that we will serve some group sites on days that don't correspond to their zip code, so if you belong to a group site, look for that site's delivery day.

Dirt Farm Brewing on Tap

   After many months of careful preparation, Dirt Farm Brewing will celebrate its grand opening on July 10.

  " This Fried Rice is intended to have many bold flavors.  The essential ingredient is the Spicy Chili Crisp that gives it rich spicy flavor, but not overpowering.  This is a very popular dried chili paste in China, which inspired me to use it in this application."
