Week of March 25th

Hello dear community members,

As you can imagine, our little CSA business has tripled in the past two weeks. Providing the freshest, local organic produce to you keeps my heart full. We our doing our best to make sure every order is filled as we adapt to logistical and staffing challenges. Please note that I am packing and delivering on Wednesdays, so won’t be available to answer questions that day. I come straight home to my two little boys, a bunch of brand new baby chicks and wake up to another round of deliveries on Thursday. I will respond as soon as I am able.

In response to the overwhelming home delivery requests which we are unable to accommodate, we are thrilled to offer a new pick-up site at Third Window Brewing Co. on the Eastside. They are offering curb side delivery from their fridge, as well as their own craft beer.

Lastly, please make sure to collapse your boxes whether you are coming to the farm, receiving home delivery or picking up at one of our locations. It helps us expedite, plus they are easier to store! If you’re unsure of how to flatten your box, see our Instagram video story @somethinggoodorganics.

Stay healthy and safe!
