order local food from farmer?

Hi Folks,

Are you eating well? We sure are! Chef salads tonight with toasted
local hazel and heartnuts. YUM!

I'm trying really hard to not sell local food this Winter. I will
resist... A farmer asked if I'd tell you how you can buy directly from
him. Sure. Here's their info:

Farmers Sam and Ellen Bowman are offering to deliver the following
certified organic foods to you on Nov. 18 (between 3:30 and 4:30pm)
and Dec 23 after 7pm. To order, phone them at 519-698-2960 (not on
Sunday). They live near Wallenstein with their two children and have
been leaders in the move toward organic farming in that area. There is
a $5 delivery charge per order. I'm not sure what that means if 5 of
you neighbours get together and order and pick it up at one house. You
can ask.
