How to Pick Up Your Share
Some Changes This Season!
If you have a produce basket from last year, or any other basket or reusable bag, please bring it with you. We will have all your items together, ready to be packed up when you arrive. If you don't have a bag or basket, we will have plastic grocery bags as well as produce baskets available. If you take home a basket, please bring it back with you each week to pick up your share.
If you find you can't make it during the pick up time, please let us know and we can arrange a Friday visit. If you are not feeling well, we can bring your share out to your car to facilitate social distancing. Call 330-549-9408 if you need to contact us about your share.

Jungle Jam ~ your choice of flavor
Number of crops ready and amount of harvest of a given crop will vary throughout the season. We will provide at least six items each week. If we have any crop issues, we will
supplement with produce from other local farms. Some weeks will include value added
items, such as Jungle Jam, Zucchini Bread, or Fresh Basil Pesto.
Some recipes we have tried. Some we just want to try...or hope someone else does!
If you use any of the recipes we provide this season, let us know how it goes.
We want to hear the good, the bad, and the delicious!
Great Ways to Use Kale
Farm Fresh Straberries
The second recipe is an unusual way to prepare strawberries, but it sounds exciting and may become a new favorite. Plus, it is an easy one to scale up or down, depending on your strawberry bounty.
