Vegetable Co-op

A friend sent this to me a few days ago. I have not used this company before, but it sounds very interesting! The way our CSA will work is that roughly a bushel of vegetables averaging 8 different vegetables (with hopes of being more on most offerings with fresh herbs added in occasionally) will be delivered to a pre-set drop point per week or bi-weekly at a pre-set time. There will be a two hour window as to when you can pick your vegetables up. The cost is $25 per offering (every week or every other week depending on your requests) with all vegetables offered being grown following all USDA national organic program rules. Most offerings are priced well below grocery store organic pricing with most being below conventional pricing as well. If you are still interested in our CSA, could you please e-mail me your contact information so that I may contact you when we are closer to the opening with the exact details of times, payment, drop days, etc. If you know of anyone else that may want to participate, could you please ask them to contact me so that I may contact them before the actual start date also? Thanks, Matt Matt Sheffield SilverWood Farm (229) 254-9391
