A message from Rachael:

More strawberries

I'm a pushover. There's no doubt about it. When the farmers say they'll have more strawberries on Tuesday and they'd prefer to sell to us than to others I loose all ability to say no. These berries are luscious and only here for such a short time. I'm going to be thankful in January that I have a few extra bags in my freezer. Also hopefully I have a couple of strawberry daiquiris this weekend to enjoy the berries we got on Friday.

Order by Monday at 9am and pick up in uptown Waterloo on Tuesday afternoon! ***If you get this email this weekend but have no access to our order form you can email me with the number of flats you want and I can add them on your behalf***

I'm so glad that I can pay farmers more. On Friday I felt rich with so many amazing strawberries on my porch. I related this to one of our farmers (who had just gotten a lovely cheque for these berries) and she was a bit humbled, but thankful that we appreciated all her hard work.

Incidentally, I was at Brenda Knechtel's farm on Wednesday visiting and picking some berries (the kids and I are hardcore... we came home with a whole 9 pints). It was absolutely lovely. As an organic farmer she only leaves strawberry plants in the ground for 2 years before ploughing them under due to the weeds, which are a big job to pull (as an organic farmer she doesn't have sprays for them). This ensures that crops are rotated as well. My son had the time of his life helping to plant a row of tomatoes and the carrots that Brenda picked while we watched barely made it home for all the snacking. Such a lovely day.

We'll be back to our regular pickup on July 5th with all the regular good things offered
  • The Nutty Bakers will be delivering monthly in the summer. July 5th August 9th, September 6th and October 4th we'll go back to weekly. If you love her amazing frozen meals stock up!
  • Gordon's Goat Dairy has their on-farm GMO free goat cheese available again. We get this at the beginning of each month, so stock up!
  • Rounds Beans - Some of the freshest dried beans available. We offer these approximately monthly also, so be sure to stock up on lentils too!
  • McKechnie tortillas. We'll be ordering all their items this week!
  • J&D Peters Pasta and noodles
Enjoy your weekend,
