Week of December 12th – The last boxes until the New Year

We are raising money for the Santa Barbara Food Bank. We already have a CSA customer who has generously donated $100. And she said for every $125 donated she will add another $25. I had to match that offer. So for every $125 donated (it doesn’t need to be from a single person), $175 worth of produce will be delivered to the SB Food Bank on December 17th. WE LOVE GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY. You can donate ANY amount from $5 and up. Just shoot me a quick email if you want to have it deducted from your account.
This will be the last CSA box until 2019. The next boxes we will be making will be on January 2nd. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. We’ve planted new trees and look forward to tons of fruit when the weather warms up. We’ve purchased new chickens (lots of them!!) and look forward to fresh eggs in the new year. I bought new seed like cauliflower and other special things to bring variety into our boxes (I’m always taking suggestions if you want to see something). We’ve formed relationships with the community and had the opportunity to bring fresh produce to your table with minimal packaging and very little gasoline. I am beyond grateful for this program and the people who support it and am looking forward to 2019 in a big way. A million thanks and the happiest holidays to you and your families.
Never eaten kohlrabi? Well I’m so glad you are here. It’s one of my favorite vegetables. You can eat it simply by peeling the outter layer, chopping them into sticks and dipping them in your favorite dip. They are so crunchy and satisfying. They can be subbed as a lower carb for potatoes or made into home fries (shown below). Your welcome 😀

Week of December 5th

It’s the time of giving! And wouldn’t it be awesome for your friends and loved ones to open their door and find a box of local, organic veggies sitting on their doorstep. You don’t have to shop around, stand in lines and throw away a bunch of plastic bags. Instead just shoot me an email and lets get some holiday gift certificates out. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE COOKIES. But I’d rather have something to help inspire me to be a healthier person, to feel better on every level of my being and to help the environment and support the community while doing it. That’s all wrapped up in a Gift Certificate from our CSA program. And now through Dec 18th, when you purchase a gift of 6 weeks or more for a new member, we will add a 7th box on FOR FREE. We won’t tell the giftee…go ahead and take all the credit 😀
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: WE ARE CLOSED DECEMBER 18th-27th. We will be back up and running to kick off the first week of the year.
