Week 26 of 2012 Season – Final Week

This is the last week of the 2012 CSA season.  Thank you all for participating in our community supported agriculture program this year.  It has been great getting to know you all at the pick-ups, sharing new varieties of produce, exchanging recipes and cooking tips.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the produce you’ve received this season and will consider joining us again next year.  We will have brochures at the pick-up with information about the 2013 season.  You can also sign up through our website.

We will continue attending the Chestertown Farmers’ market with what we have remaining in our fields.  We hope you continue to stop by and visit.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
