Fresh Local Berries (organic too!)

We are excited to be partnering with Hayton Farms this year to offer an add on of fresh local organic berries!  Hayton Farms is a 5th generation, organic berry farm less than 20 miles from our farm in the fertile Skagit valley.  They specialize in berries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.  They offer multiple varieties of each, meaning lots of variety!  If you’ve been to any of the local farmers markets, you’ve seen them.  They are at over 80 different markets each week!!!

We are going to be offering 1/3 flats, that’s four pints (or two quarts) of berries.  They will be seasonal, so there may be a lot of strawberries at some times, more blueberries at others.  If you really love fresh fruits and berries, you can add on more than one fruit share.  If you select delivery, your berries will come with the rest of your CSA share at no extra charge.  We hope to be able to offer some bulk buys during the season for folks who want to do some canning as well.  The cost for the first share is $204 for 17 weeks.  You can add a second share for an additional $195.  In addition, we will be coordinating bulk buys for canning and preserving for our CSA members.

Flower CSA! From Twig and Vine in Stanwood Washington.

We can’t do it all.  But we also think that shouldn’t mean you shouldn’t have choices, options and some beauty in your life, and we have an opportunity for our CSA customers, to have a fresh local flower arrangement weekly with their CSA vegetables.

While we are growing your veggies, Deanna from Twig and Vine will be putting together some of the best of the seasons flowers to grace your table!  Deanna has been arranging flowers for local brides, offices and other customers for years.  We are excited to have the chance to partner with her to offer a 10 week season of fresh local flowers, grown with the same care as we are growing your food (That means no bee harming sprays or chemicals, and with a mind to the stewardship of the soil).

Your arrangement will be different, every week, and will include some familiar and some unique components.  She describes them as “a flower garden bouquet, with a loose comfortable feel, filled with unique foliages and herbs.  The will have heirloom flowers, types that growers sometimes can’t get, and flowers like sweet peas, dahlias, zinnias and much more!”

The cost for the 10 week season is $250, which is a good deal, and unlike the $30 arrangements in grocery stores, all of your investment will stay in the community.  These flowers aren’t brought in from out of state, these are local.  Like 25 miles local.  Additionally, if you add on delivery for your CSA, your bouquet will show up with your weekly box of local produce at no extra charge!  Deanna expects the season to start in July.
