Check out some new additions to the farm. 26 chickens and 5 turkeys!!! All chickens will be dedicated to laying eggs for our CSA and we plan to expand our population as soon as we figure it all out!! Check out some pictures of the happy birds in their temporary housing! (Sorry! I’m still working on my photo skills.)
The heritage turkeys will be kept for breeding for now, but we will eventually be able to introduce 100% organic free range turkeys onto the menu. The turkeys are kept under a red heat lamp to keep them warm until they come of age.

I ran across a really cool, local business last week that I felt a need to share. I’m big into refilling my old bottles as it obviously uses a ton less energy than recycling. I recently bumped into Refill to You’s owner and learned more about what they do like offering 15 different products for replenishing.
You don’t have to use your bottles just once…
That’s the mantra behind Refill to You, a service that helps reduce waste by replenishing empty containers with organic, cruelty & paraben-free detergents, soaps, lotions, and sprays for the kitchen, bath, and laundry. And, like Something Good Organics, they do the lugging for you!
Products are delivered to your home or office in a choice of environmentally responsible containers including repurposed jars and bottles. Check them out on their Facebook or find out more by visiting their web site — I think you’ll be glad you did!

**Cherry tomatoes and strawberries are coming from Ellwood Canyon Farms this week. **,
* We are adding one extra item into the box this week for some squishy spinach that went out on 8/21. That means you should hang at home one extra night this week, and cook at home with loved ones and/or animals 🙂
