New Field Farm's Online Market:  Almost over


Greetings,

Between last week’s bulk order and our last market today in Newton there’s not too much left in the field or barn.

We still have carrots, red and green cabbage, leeks, Winterbor and Lacinato kale, and a few Ailsa Craig, Tropea, and Copra onions. The prices given are for any amount.

We’ll have an order this week. Next week I’m away. After that, if we still have some produce, I’ll offer it as long as it lasts or until there’s no more interest. Any orders placed week after next or later would have to be picked up at the farm.

We went from the hot March to the May freeze, from the July drought to the torrential rain and hail of early August, through the gauntlet of pests and diseases, and throughout the season, wild turkeys. In the end, thanks to your support, we had the best online market yet, and our best season overall. Thank you for trusting us to provide fresh, organic vegetables and blueberries for another season.

Gratefully,
Tim

ALFN Local Food Club:  One More Day o' Orderin'


Hey ya’ll,
One more day to get your week’s market order in !
We’ve got bulk green beans from Crimmins.
We’ve got a colorful variety of root vegetables, including beautiful radishes and turnips.
We’ve got such a festivity of fresh greens you’d think we were ruminants.
Here’s a thought: fresh salad greens, honey-roasted pecans, Kent Walker cheese. Now THAT’S a good salad.
One order of business: if you choose Monday for your pickup day, please note that Monday’s pickup runs from 4:30-6pm. We can’t guarantee that anyone will be available to help you with your order before or after that time.
Thanks!
Sincerely,
Sam Hedges
