CSA Comes to a Close…

business-card

It happens every year:  The CSA comes to a close.  This week was the end for 60 members, and next week will be the end for 36 members.  Last week we said ‘good bye’ to 24 members.  I hope it has been a wonderful experience for EVERYONE–lots of good vegetables with lots of variety.  I hope EVERYONE has experienced the beauty of FRESH produce–the heightened taste, nutrition, and its ability to last longer than what we get through conventional means.  I hope EVERYONE has taken advantage of recipes on the internet and those we’ve posted on http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com.   And rest assured, once we have a little down time we will be at it again for 2019!

What now?  We will be stocking our vegetables at Bee Healthy for Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday.  After we finish the CSA next week, with the start of the last week in October, we will stock Friday through Wednesday.  This runs up to Christmas.  The Buyer’s Group starts up in January.  If you are looking for something specific (cabbage or pie pumpkins, for example) send me a text and I will be sure to send those specific items to Bee Healthy.

What is the Buyer’s Group?  With most of our stored vegetables coming to an end, but still a need for organically raised veggies through the winter into the spring, we hold Buyer’s Group/Walk-in’s Welcome every Thursday in the back room at Bee Healthy!  Produce is as fresh as possible in the middle of the winter, and sales last all day Thursday–10:00 to 5:30.  40 folks commit to a Special Box of veggies two times a month (Buyer’s Group Members), and we provide those Special Boxes and Extra’s for the members of the Buyer’s Group AND each and every Walk-in.  Buyer’s Group is not closed to members only– the core of members cover the minimum cost with Spokane Produce so we can provide the program for the community at-large (Walk-in’s).

Sign up ‘to follow’ us at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com so you will know when to sign-up in December for the Buyer’s Group/Walk-in’s Welcome.  In the meantime, shop and support Bee Healthy.  In fact, shop Bee Healthy all year round–Janet has been a key player in supporting our garden and values Fresh and Local!
