Our Most “Local” Share This Year So Far…See Photos!

May 10, 2012

Our team is traveling around Texas today, picking up all kinds of local produce for the co-op style produce shares this weekend.  This will be our most “local” share this year so far!

Here are some of the produce items planned* to be in this weekend’s co-op style produce shares…there are several more items, but this is just a sampling!

  • Pink Radishes from Cleburne, TX
  • Kale from Cleburne, TX
  • Zucchini & Yellow Squash from Cleburne, TX
  • Beets (3 different varieties) from Austin, TX
  • Carrots from Wharton County, TX
  • Cabbage from Wharton County, TX
  • Cucumbers from Wharton County, TX
  • Fennel from Wharton County, TX
  • Green Onions from Wharton County, TX
  • Rainbow Chard from Blooming Grove, TX

*When working with fresh produce, availability can sometimes change last-minute.  We do our best to let you know what’s coming ahead of time, but sometimes things do change, especially when working with local farmers.  Thanks for your understanding!

THIS JUST IN – Here are some photos of our team picking up the produce today…

    Thank you for all your hard work to bring us locally grown, organic produce at a fair price. Because of co-ops, our household is almost 100% organic produce.
