Hi there 

Can't believe it's already Week 19.

There are only 4 weeks left of the Summer Share! Fall certainly seems to have set in-- cooler nights and still some sunny days. We have a wonderful bag for you this week-- lots of foods that will make a variety of different dishes, like cornmeal for making polenta and muffins, squash for making soups and side dishes, pears for snacking or desserts. Fall in Ohio can be really spectacular.

Our Farm Tour has already sold out, so for those of you coming on the trip with us, look out for an email in the next few days with more details! If you didn't get a spot but want to get on the wait list, send us an email with the number in your party as well and a contact phone number. 

Feeding calves on the 2014 Farm Tour

We also have a fantastic class with room left coming up next week-- Cabbage Mania with Parker Bosley. Whether you love cabbage already, or you need to learn to love it, this is a tasty class. Hint-- you might want to sign up because you're all getting a glorious, big ole' head of green cabbage in your shares this week!

Also, to everyone who came out to the Customer Appreciation BBQ and made a donation, thank you so much! We raised more than $750 for Urban Community School's student Farm. And for those of you who submitted recipes- we'll be announcing the lucky winner of the Turkey Raffle shortly! When the Recipe Collection is finished, we'll email out the link to see all the recipes for the delicious dishes you brought. 
 



There are only a few weeks left, so we've got some notes to share: 

This week's Medina Stop is moved. 

The church where we normally have our Medina pick up on Wednesdays is refinishing their parking lot this week. So for just this week only, we're shifting the pick up location to just down the street:

Bil-Jac Foods
3337 Medina Road
Medina, Ohio 44256

It's just down the street from the church and Trevor says you'll be able to see the truck from the road. Next week, we'll be back at the church as usual.

Have any questions? Just reply to this email or give Lyn a call at 800-861-8582.


Final Payments for the Summer Season are due. 

We're in the last few weeks of the Summer season, and that means it's time to check into your account and settle up any balance that's owed. You can't sign up for Winter until your balance is fully paid, so make sure you do that soon! If you have any questions, please reply to this email or give Lyn a call at 800-861-8582. 


Please bring back your bag collection.  

Up until that very last bag you collect (which you can return to a Winter Share Stop or bring back next year for Summer 2016), we need your bags back to keep filling them up! They're expensive to replace, so it would be a huge help if you just popped the trunk and un-stuffed that large collection of Fresh Fork Bags you may or may not be stockpiling. 


Featured Product
 
Salmon Pick Up Next Week
 

We had to push back the delivery date of the salmon to the following week. It's arriving in Cleveland this week,but not with enough turn-around time to get it back out to you during the share week. 

The Salmon will be ready for pick up during Week 20: October 14th - 17th

If this changes your location preference, or you've scheduled a vacation that week and need to alter your delivery, just reply to this email or give Lyn a call at 800-861-8582.

We'll also be sending you a "Salmon Order Delivery Confirmation" email next week with a reminder of how much to pick up, when and where.

There are still a few cases and pieces left, so if you want to still get in on the fish, click here to learn more or here to sign into your account and place your order.

Bulk for Preserving
 

This week, we have some bushels and half bushels of Jonathan Apples. We will just keep selling these bulk packs at these prices until their seasons end. 

These apples make GREAT Applesauce. Don't you just love apple season?? We do too. A bunch of us bought this great book all about the Apple-- Apples of Uncommon Character. it's beautiful, and would make a great host/ess gift this Fall. 

Just sign into your account and get started on your sauces and apple butters.
  • Apples- bushel (45-50#) - $40 ($5 refundable crate deposit)
  • Apples - half bushel (20-25#) - $25 ($5 refundable crate deposit)
