Posted 5/20/2016 4:24pm by Josie Hart.

 Dearest Supporters,

Next week we'll have a special early pickup for the Supporting Shareholders. Come meet your farmers! We'll have snacks and drinks made with produce from the farm.  This pickup will include bok choy, spinach, chives, mint, tarragon, and lovage.

We're excited to see you again / meet you! Please make sure you know where you will pick up - Tuesday at York St. or Thursday here at Chatfield! 

Tuesday distribution starts at 4p.m. on the south side of the top level of the parking structure. Thursday starts at 3:30 p.m. in the washstand near the historic ranch buildings. At both locations - look for the signs "CSA Distribution".
