Week of July 21st

My dear community,

Corn is back in the CSA boxes! Just a sweet reminder that our organic corn is something that all of nature wants to partake in so it usually comes with a bonus worm or two at the top. That’s a good thing! The worm(s) can just be discarded into your backyard as a snack for a delighted creature. You may not find a worm, but normally the tops are a little mushy and/or even black. Please discard any part that doesn’t look edible and enjoy the rest. Also, if you find anything in your box that is inedible we will replace it in your next box. Please let us know as soon as you can.

We’re having a flash sale on our Ojai Jalapeño and Apricot Habeñero Jams for just $5 each to make way for…our own strawberry jam! It’s made from our favorite strawberries on the farm and will be in our online store soon. We are also selling San Julian ground beef by the pound. It’s frozen until it goes into your box so please make sure you are available to properly transfer it to your fridge or freezer.

Be good to each other.

My dear community,

We’ve started harvesting our peaches in a big way. We do our best to pick them slightly underripe so they aren’t bruised during transport. Thank you for understanding this is a learning curve for all of us and our aim is to get you the best tasting produce whole and intact. With extremely hot temperatures in Buellton where most of our tree fruit is grown it can be difficult to get things just right. With that said – kindly notify us if something happened to your fruit to render it inedible upon receiving it. We are happy to replace the item(s) with something else available in a future box.

Be good to each other.

My dear community,

I’ve added a few new things to our CSA store. Ground beef from Rancho San Julian, sweet corn, navel oranges, peaches and small chicken eggs while they last. We’re currently working on a big strawberry jam project so we’ve reduced the price of the Ojai Jellies to make room for our incoming jam. We still have lots of avocados, local olive oil, bone broth and more in our store. Place your order before midnight tonight to have it included in with your share this week. If there’s anything else you’d like to see in the store please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Be good to each other.
