Week 23 – Hurricane Sandy is no match for the power of Organic!

We have heard from many of you, and we hope that you all fared well through the storm.  The farm was relatively unaffected, with only a tree limb down here and there.  So no complaints!  We did postpone the Tuesday distribution ahead of time, so the new schedule is: Garrison – pickup on Wednesday as normal, Gardiner – pick-up is Friday from 2:30 to 7 pm.  We have emailed you all, but to reiterate: please let us know if this schedule doesn’t work and we will work something out.

And now, here we are at the last week of the regular distribution season!  (not including the Thanksgiving share in a few weeks.)  What a great season it’s been – Mother Nature gave us a fantastic growing season and we were pleased to be able to offer bonus weeks at the beginning and the end of the season.  We are already planning next year, and are excited to continue to be your farm for 2013.  Details will be on the website soon.

In the mean time, enjoy this week’s share!  And for those picking up tomorrow, no costumes are necessary for these treats (although we certainly won’t turn you away)!
