Welcome to Week 7 of your Summer Farm Share. We hope you've been enjoying your subscription so far! Below you'll find the bag contents for this week, for both the Large and Small shares. 

The central item of this week's bag is a roughly 2# pork roast. It benefits from "low & slow" cooking: season it well, give both sides a sear, add an acid-based sauce (like BBQ or another tomato-based sauce) and cook it at a low heat for a few hours and you'll have some delicious pulled pork! Here are some recipes from Fresh Fork Market: Crock Pot Pork Shoulder, Pork Roast with Apples & Sauerkraut & Pork Sugo

You'll also have some red cabbage, broccoli, and onion, some green beans, blueberries, Swiss chard, zucchini and red potatoes. The Large Share will also get a pint of cherries and a BLT upgrade: a pound of nitrate-free, Berkshire bacon, some slicing tomatoes and a head of lettuce. 

About vacations : we know summer time is when many families take a trip, but we don't want you to lose out on your CSA share! You can take up to four weeks off from the program , but you need to let us know at least one full week in advance. If you know your dates earlier, you can let us know so we can all plan ahead. When you return, you can either pick up two bags (please let us know if you want to do this so we can adjust our numbers), or you will have your bag's value in credit to spend at the shop ($25 for a Small share or $40 for a Large.) You also can always just send a friend or neighbor to get your share for you.

If you miss a week and did not schedule a vacation, we're really sorry but we're not able to refund it. If there is still time on a Saturday but you know you won't make it, try to send a friend or neighbor, or call the barn.

If you need to make your monthly payment for July, please call or stop in at the barn, or you can send us a check via snail mail:
