It's Time for Produce!

Are you a 2009 Summer CSA shareholder?

Well, we have good news! The CGB / Heaven's Harvest Farm CSA kicks off on Thursday, June 18!

Details are noted below:

*Pick-up is on Thursdays from 3:00 - 6:30 pm. If you cannot make it during this time or are traveling, please find friends or neighbors who would be willing to pick up produce. If you cannot find anyone to pick up your share, please notify CGB in advance so we may donate it to a Salem charity.

*There are two pick-up checklists: full and half shares. When picking up your share, please check off your name. Additionally, there is a registration form that needs to be completed during the first CSA pickup.

*Please Note! When picking up your share, please take produce from the box with your name! Additionally, you will need your own tote bag to carry home your share since the farm re-uses the boxes each week.

*CGB tries to be as accommodating as possible, but please remember that we are still just retail shop that is not capable of storing produce.

*If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact Jennie or Amy at 978.741.0800 or crunchygranolababy@verizon.net

And we're introducing a few new concepts this time:

1.) Word of mouth isn't reliable. Paper wastes trees. The Google Group crashed and burned.

So we're kickin' off our Crunchy Granola Baby CSA Blog!

Visit our blog to view recipes, photos, ideas and anything else related to our weekly yummy produce! And if you're really interested in what we've got to say, subscribe to our blog and share your own produce stories!
Also, we hope to introduce the "Bamboo Spoon Award", check the blog often for all the details!

3. Egg Share, Anyone?

A local company is now offering a certified organic egg share! The eggs would be delivered for 15 weeks, right alongside your regular produce share.

And did we mention the price is great? A 1/2 dozen organic eggs cost just $45 and a dozen cost $90.

If you are interested in participating in our new egg share, please contact Amy or Jennie by Sunday, June 7!
