Sign-up Now! Swier Family Farm CSA’s!

harvest 11 (still missing onions, garlic, edamame, salad mix), 20 pound mark!

Many people have asked me to re-post our 2013 Vegetable CSA Sign-Up, also, our 2013 Mushroom CSA Sign-up. In addition, it’s been suggested that we occasionally re-post to email and to Facebook. Repeated posts have a better chance of being seen in the busy stream.

If you could please help us spread the word that CSA sign-up’s are happening. We are accepting Vegetable, Mushroom, and Honey sign-up’s now. You can find the sign-up forms HERE   Please spread the word of what our CSA has meant for you in the past. Please share your comments with us – we’ll try to pass them on in future posts too!

If you have some contacts to whom you think our CSA might appeal, pass it on! If you’re on a list-serve at work, and you can post, please send it forward. Paste it on your personal Facebook, your email contacts, etc, etc. If you’ve got favorite hang-out’s in town where some of our hardcopy brochures would do well – Let Me Know!
