Cedar Grove Farm:  CSA Availability for 11-21


Hi folks,

I recently heard an episode of This American Life on NPR about a woman who had a list of seven things you’re not supposed to talk about because nobody cares. It included things like the weather, your health, and your diet. I’m pretty sure she’s not an organic farmer because it’s almost impossible not to mention one of those three things on a regular basis.

Anyhow, here’s this week’s list of produce. I won’t go into any details about the weather or how good kale is for you…this time.

Remember, pickups are now at Lindsey’s on Thursdays from 4-6.

Have a happy & a healthy,
Caitlyn and the CGF team

StPete.LocallyGrown.Net:  Market NOW Open - Nov. 18, 2013


Message from Your Market Manager

PRE-HOLIDAY VOLUME
Since we are closed next week, I have pre-ordered a bit less this week from Geraldson Community Farm. HOWEVER, please order an item even if the count remaining is less than zero and I will place a final order in hopes of getting the additional veggies you have ordered. There is a very good chance I will be able to fill all of your orders because abundance is “growing” weekly! I hope you will feel free to stock up this week. Remember that much of the produce we sell keeps for several weeks when properly stored because it is harvested within 24 hours of delivery to you.

YOUR RESPONSES REQUESTED ASAP
For me to make a commitment to support the following request, I am “taking the pulse” on customer commitment to purchase these (possible) items in the future. Here’s the scoop! Jim Kuntzelman of Sunset Farms, our provider of USDA facility inspected lamb, emailed me today with the following message: “I am tracking down a possible lead on USDA inspected sausages/hotdogs/hams/bacon etc. Would you be able to put some feelers out and see what the demand would be? We would be able to provide lamb, beef, and pork sausage along with bacon and ham if the demand is there. This would be a good bit of extra leg work for us but we are more than willing to do so if the demand is there. It would be gluten/msg/filler free and 100% grass-fed beef and lamb and pastured pork.” Given Jim’s willingness to provide these items: Please email me ASAP if you believe that you would buy these products if available on our Market and PLEASE BE SPECIFIC on which ones interest you. I have taste tested the all-beef “sweet Italian sausage”, “bratwurst”, and “HOT Italian sausage”. It is HOT. I have truly enjoyed putting the leftovers in spaghetti sauce. Not sure which ones he will move forward with.

MARKET WILL BE CLOSED DURING THANKSGIVING WEEK
Our online Market will not open during the week of Thanksgiving (Monday, 11/25th) and Christmas (Monday, 12/23rd). Most everything you order this week will last a minimum of two weeks, including the micro-greens. Don’t let holidays mess up your healthy eating ritual. We are here to deliver freshly harvested, locally grown, chemical-free produce and high quality products that will keep you on track. Please contact Market Manager at 727-515-9469 if you need any help planning your selections this week.

HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS AND GIFTS
It is that time of year to mention the great abundance of specialized, healthy foods and products to keep you vibrant during the upcoming holidays and to share with friends and family. Check out our gift ideas that are bound to be unique, many that are LOCALLY produced, and available through our online Market. Remember, we deliver purchases to your home or office! How about a Gift Certificate from St. Pete Locally Grown?

WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CUSTOMERS! Once you have submitted your order, if in doubt about what you owe, you can always confirm what you have been charged for by checking your account history and viewing your most current invoice. Instructions on how to do that are on our Q&A page under the question entitled Since you don’t provide an invoice with delivery, how do I know what I owe? . Also, since your vegetables are picked fresh within 24 hours of delivery, they should be lasting for WEEKS in your refrigerator. When you accept delivery, please take a few minutes to inspect your order to protect your vegetables from unnecessary spoilage. Lastly, it is imperative that you understand our policy on Unclaimed Orders found on our Q&A page. When you make a purchase you are agreeing to abide by this policy.
