The Land of Milk and Honey

Unfortunately, government regulations prevent us from selling (or even giving away) our milk — which is a moot point at the moment since our milk cow is dry anyways. However, the honey operation that Johnny set up last summer is now up and running and the cup runneth over with fresh, delicious honey. Our members got a taste of the honey about a month ago, and we are pleased to announce that we are now able to sell to anyone who would like some more. We will have 1 kg pails of honey available at fall pick-up for $12/kg. If you would like 3 or more kg and provide your own container, the price drops to $8.50/kg. Bulk honey is also available (again with your own container) for $8/kg. We are also happy to sell to people who are not part of our CSA. We can arrange delivery to Saskatoon or the Battlefords. Please contact us at (306) 481-5654 or (306) 386-2601 or post a comment to this blog or our facebook page if you are interested in ordering!

In other news, the last order of summer vegetables has now gone out (except for a few locals who will be picking up tomorrow). Although the cucumbers and zucchini slowed down considerably, they hung in there right till the end, along with lots of tomatoes, hot peppers, and a few sweet peppers. As always, there were potatoes, carrots, onions, and beets, as well as parsley, celery, and cooking greens (kale, perpetual spinach, and swiss chard). But the highlight of the order (in my humble opinion), was the gorgeous fall lettuce we were able to send. Sometimes fall lettuce is bitter, but conditions this year have produced a perfectly delectable crop. Winter members will be treated to more at fall pick up on Sunday, September 25th. We look forward to seeing you then!
