Vacation and "Life Happens" Policy
Please send Sara an email by Monday at 5pm of the week that you want to hold delivery. You may double up another week in the season. However, if you are going out of town please consider having a friend our house sitter pick up your share. It's a great way to introduce the CSA concept to a friend!
"In this winter of prolonged frost, I really enjoyed participating in your winter CSA as well as the fruitbowl CSA. I've long been a member of a summer CSA, but this was my first winter CSA. The surprise additions to the boxes were really fun and even the standard veggies were a great treat for our meals (tonight, we're having a carrot, parsnip and sweet potato sauté with spices and raisins). So, thanks for all of your efforts."
