CANNER’S SHARES

SUMMER PROGRAM–

In this day and age of growing knowledge of food and its importance in our diet for our well-being, and a growing awareness of contamination and chemicals in our foods, why not preserve your OWN? Set it aside when it is at its peak, for the winter or a time when fresh food is not abundant.  Our produce is vibrant and fresh, and not laced with chemical additives or pesticides, hand-picked at its peak– usually the day you need it.

You do not have to be a CSA member to have a Canner’s Share. (If you pre-order in May for pick up during the summer you will have first priority when the produce is ready.)  Order by sending an email to craftterri@rtconnect.net.  Payment due at pick up-Prices will be updated in May before the sign-up’s.
