Items that you have placed in your shopping cart will be ordered on your behalf on Tuesday at 8:00pm. There is no checkout button. If you do not intend to order, please ensure that your shopping cart is empty.
***** Be sure to order enough for 3 weeks! *****
We have changed our May pickup to FRIDAY May 11th so that you will have fresh, local food for Mother's Day weekend! (formerly the pickup was scheduled for Monday May 15th).
In June we will have pickups on Friday June 1 and 15th and if the strawberries are ready we may have a June 8th pickup! (Can you believe we're already talking about berries?). Starting June 15th we will run every Friday until Thanksgiving! We will not run on the Fridays before long weekends in the summer.

Welcome to all our new members, especially those from Breslau who are ordering for pickup at our satellite location!

If you are interested in picking up your order in Breslau, please let us know and we'll make sure that you are added to our Breslau list!
If you're new here and want to read more, check out our past emails at It's a great way to learn about the local foods to expect all year long!

A Message from Rachael:

Where is the asparagus? I called a couple asparagus farmers yesterday and they say that the asparagus is trying to come up. It really is. It grows during the day and gets frozen at night. Come on Spring! I'm adding asparagus to the order form anyway because if it's ready on May 11th the farmers will be very happy to sell to us!

There are seedlings for you to buy also. You get first dibs on the seedlings grown by Sarah's Kitchen Gardens. If you want to know more about any of the varieties she has set up a super cool catalog of her plants online at Nith Valley Organics also has seedlings for us. Stay tuned for a link to more info on Nathan's varieties!

You have until Wednesday May 2 at noon to order your Gordon's Goat Dairy cheese for the month! Also, we recently got this update from Monforte that I had to share:
  • the Waltzing Matilda (ash ripened water buffalo) is incredibly beautiful this week.
  • this batch of Bliss (triple creme, sheep/cow) has a slight shading of blue/green mold on the bloomy rind that does not affect the flavor
  • the Pepato (soft ripened sheep with olive oil and black pepper) is available again! We have lots to go around
  • Daniel is very very proud of this batch of Paradiso (washed rind, buttery, sheeps' milk). The rind is just perfect.
In the mean time, some order form highlights:

  • Rounds Beans back on the order form! These will be offered approximately once per month.
  • Soiled Reputation back on the order form (I missed their salad mixes and their Asian braising greens!)
  • Rhubarb! So yummy stewed and in pies... (in the 'vegetables' section)
  • Tasty spinach! So many farmers to choose from! Get one from each!
  • New Moon Cookies. We'll have a fresh batch!
  • Pear-Apple Sauce for breakfast, cooking, freezer pops...
  • Wieners (beef or turkey) from Stemmler's for your long weekend BBQs
  • Relish, ketchup and buns for the wieners!
  • Chocolates from Anna Tolazzi for Mother's Day!
  • Does Mom like to garden? How about edging tiles or plant supports from Traditional Gardener?
