Fathers Day is next week and we have a great BBQ and farm walk planned. If you are planning on joining us, please do e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many to expect, and how much food to have. You can also just come to the field walk, after your own fathers day activities.
In keeping with providing the CSA with a varied and useful selection of vegetables in your shares we bought carrots from a local farm (we've been out of our carrots for a few months now). These carrots are super sweet and delicious, we hope you like them! We have a few extra and have them offered as add on's until they run out.

Field Walk with your TapRoot Farmers
Sunday, June 18th, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Join us for our third field walk with Patricia and Josh of TapRoot farms. Join us as we wander through the fields, tunnels, greenhouses, and animals at 1736 Church Street. Come back throughout the year and see how much the farm changes, season to season.
Guided tour starts at 1:30 PM. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking through fields. We will walk rain or shine. Large wheeled stroller or backpacks are best. For our on farm food safety it's best to leave the four legged friends at home.
Tickets are now available for the THREE Jamaican Jerk Pig Roasts this summer.
