Due to a lack of water this year we have a small corn maze.

We are doing a scavanger hunt and also have pumpkins available.

Spring is on its way!!!

Wow!  This weather is awesome!!  Not sure what the summer will bring but we are sure enjoying it now.

The website is ready for CSA signups.  Also the spring and summer egg shares are open for sign up.  We are still working on the fruit shares and will let you know when it is ready.

We are going to do a give and take box this year at your CSA pickup site.  If there is something in your box that you can't use that week you may put it in the give and take box and or if there

is something in the box that you would like you may take it.  That will give everyone a little more flexibility.  We will try it and see how it goes.  If you have any other suggestions or ideas be sure and let me know.

If you have any problems navigating the website please let us know.

To show our appreciation for our returning CSA members there is an added discount at checkout!!

We have had several requests for another CSA option so here it is!!!

Market Share

For those of you who need more flexibility and can't commit to a weekly box we are offering a market share.  You will purchase a share in $100, $200, or $300 increments and then get a credit which you can use at Farmers Market, Vals Veggies Stand, or for call in orders for canning, etc.

$100 equals $105 credit

$200 equals $210 credit

$300 equals $330 credit

These shares will need to be purchased by June 1 just like the regular shares.  To sign up go to the website and sign up under CSA shares.  Any questions just call or email.

Thanks much,

Rod and Valerie

This is a friendly reminder that the Early Bird signup ends March 1.

The winter is speeding by and spring is fast approaching and the veggie grower is chomping at the bit to get out there and do some planting!! She told me this morning that she wanted to go and plant some peas.. but it looks a little bit to damp to get into the garden just yet.

It has been just like it is for you customers that have gotten a CSA box from us every week, kinda like christmas,  the box comes in the mail or the UPS or FEX and we can hardly wait to open it and see what's inside, of course we know that it is seed but there still is that feeling of not knowing just what is in there.  Well you know what those boxes mean???  Work and more work,  got to get them all planted in the trays or ground so that they will grow into productive plants. 

We saved some corn from the corn maze and it is drying out so that we can run it through the mill for corn meal. I will let you know when it is available.

Have a great day.
