Greetings! Another delicious week is ahead! Of course at Harvest Moon, we are all about these cucumbers, which we grow in our green houses. That means we will be having them for some time. McClellan Organics is busy harvesting quite a variety of vegetables; these include yellow squash, zucchini, green beans, eggplant, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes. The greens are coming along as well with kale and collards being picked this week. So you may look for these items to be coming in your boxes. We also add to your boxes certified organic produce from local organic farms and also from a new company called Global Organics out of Florida. These coming weeks from Global you may look for butternut and acorn squash, sweet potatoes, avocados, pears and apples. Harvest Moon strives with pleasure to put together a box each week that has a variety of different fruits and vegetables. If we didn't as you can see by my farm report, if you were to get strictly from us it would be the same items. It is weeks at time that the same types of produce may get harvested. With that being said, this is the reason we add from other organic farms for we all like variety. When choosing the additions to your box, I always take in consideration the seasonal items and most importantly trying our best to keep things as local as we can. So, our first choice is local, then Georgia grown, then surrounding states and so on. There are some items such as apples, potatoes, carrots etc...that may come from the western United States and occasionally some fruit from out of the country. I will not buy from Mexico. For there are different rules applying for certified organic outside of the USA. But you may count on ALL the fruits and vegetables to be USDA certified organic.
Copy and paste the link above for information on Global Organics. This month on their web site they are featuring none other than "your farmer" Bryan and Katie of McClellan Organics. If you have any questions please email us and we will be happy to answer them! We have also connected with Wiregrass Fresh an up and coming CSA being offered in and around Dothan, Alabama. Look on their web site for more information and pick up locations. http://www.wiregrassfresh.com/ .
By joining a CSA you are cutting out distance and time from the farm to your table, resulting in fresher, better tasting and more nutritious organic fruits and vegetables.
Thank you from all of us!
