Welcome Autumn! Time to start thinking about Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away! Will you be hosting or bringing a side dish? Have you got a hostess gift in mind for the person who is preparing the meal you will eat? Do you need a turkey and all the fixings? Start planning! 
This week is Organic Week! We're so happy to offer so many certified organic foods that are local. Thank you for supporting our farmers each week.
I need to apologize for the incorrect dates in the last email. They are right this time!
This is a great time to add the bread from Grainharvest and Circle of Life. We will send the order Wednesday morning.
Amazing local goodness this week:

Fruit from Niagara

We continue to have amazing Peaches, Pears Grapes and Raspberries, we also have lovely Plums including Damson (great for jam!) and Italian Prune Plums.
Our BULK 10 and 20 pound boxes of fruit are a great value!

A note about peaches!

We have some of the most amazing peaches coming from Warrner's Fruit Farm in Niagara.
  • Warner's practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which means that they only spray when there is a problem to be solved. This uses less pesticides and often solutions allowed in organic farming
  • The fruit is TREE RUN which means that we are avoiding the fungicidal baths that occur at the sorting stations. The advantage, no extra fungicidal baths, fruit ripens longer on the tree since the shipping time is only 2 hours! 
  • Caring for these peaches is a bit different, but definitely worth it.
Here are some tips:
  1. When you get home, remove the peaches from their box. Some will be ripe and ready to eat. Eat them!
  2. Peaches that are not ripe should be set out on newspaper, not touching and with the stem end up.
  3. Keep an eye on them and eat or process your peaches when they are perfect. You won't be waiting long! Peaches can go in the fridge, but please note that the texture can change, especially if they are not yet ripe.
