Newsletters from the Farm

Every week we are at market, we put together a one-page newsletter and give a copy to anyone who wants one. It lists what we have available that week, tells what happened at the farm that week, highlights one of the heirloom vegetables currently in season (including the history of the variety, information about that type of vegetable, and basic growing and cooking tips), and a recipe or two that uses the featured item and other in-season produce.

Each week's newsletter is available here for free, in Adobe PDF and MS Word format. All rights are reserved, but if you'd like to reproduce anything here, just contact us.
