Thanksgiving CSA box

PLEASE NOTE WE WILL BE CLOSED DECEMBER 19-26. You do not need to put your account on hold, we’ve already done it for you. We will back the first week of January to kick off the New Year right.
This year we are raising money for the Lompoc Homeless shelter. Living here in Buellton I’ve realized there is plenty of need for fresh vegetables for our neighbors up in Lompoc. Your donation will help bring them fresh salads through the end of the year. AND we will match any amount of money you’d like to contribute dollar for dollar.
It’s been an odd growing season around the holidays this year. Our beans frosted, our parsley didn’t come up and it’s too warm on the other side to start Brussels sprouts this early. I know those are things we like to have on our holidays tables. But we have PLENTY of fresh, vibrant veggies and will keep you stocked with everything that is good from the farm. I am so thankful for our community and support we receive year round that continues to let us thrive.
