New for 2014 - Organically Grown CSA

2013 blew by us like, well, I can't think of an appropriate cliché to describe it.  But with time to reflect over our first Northwoods winter (we sure picked a doozie, eh?), Warren and I have decided to offer a CSA to a limited number of folks interested in a full or half share of weekly, organically grown produce.

We have often had spring fever planting, only to find that there's not much point in going to market with bok choy, turnips, Swiss chard, green onions and other early summer produce without our main product: garlic.

But with folks signed up to receive our produce from the beginning of growing season to the end and beyond (hearty root vegetables and storage crops for the winter), we don't need to stand behind our market table in late June to sell $60 of produce - we can get it directly to you.

Subscriptions, paid in full, are $525 for a full share and $285 for a half, with options to continue receiving storage crops and root vegetables through the winter.  That will include not only your typical produce, but unique heirlooms, apples, possibly mushrooms if our logs produce this year, local hand harvested wild rice, and the garlic we're famous for.

Drop Warren a line at warrenalto@yahoo.com or at (218)259-9740 to sign up or for more information.  All subscriptions must be placed NO LATER THAN APRIL 15.
