Box Notes: The Fuyu Persimmons are grown by our neighbor Frank Espriella here in Guinda. He has spent over 20 years developing his specialty persimmon orchard. They are not certified organic but are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. This type of persimmon can be eaten when firm, like an apple. No need to peel the skin.

Next week we will be adding extra vegetables to the CSA box as a token of our gratitude to all of our CSA subscribers. We hope this small gift will bring extra abundance to your holiday tables. Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy the holiday.

Thanksgiving hams are nearly sold out (only 2 left!). If you would like to order a Riverdog Ham for the Christmas Holiday, you may do so via the web store after 11/27.

Riverdog hams are smoked over apple and alder wood chips by Roundman’s Smokehouse in Fort Bragg. They range form 3.5-7 lbs. and contain no added nitrates. Our certified organic hogs live on 50 acres of organic pasture and enjoy an all organic diet that consists of our vegetable culls, Cowgirl Creamery whey, Three Twins Ice Cream, foraged black walnuts, acorns, grasses, farm grown grains and certified organic feed. Riverdog Farm hogs are certified organically raised animals by CCOF. Our meat is processed at non-certified organic USDA facilities therefore; the pork is not certified organic.

Limited availability. Hams are $10/lb. We require a $15 deposit per reservation; this cost will be deducted from the total amount due for your ham. You will be charged the reminder due once your ham has been weighed, packaged and delivered. Thanksgiving Ham deliveries will be made the weeks of November 12th and November 19th. Christmas hams will be delivered the week of December 11th and December 18th.

When checking out, please specify your desired delivery date and ham weight. We will get as close as we can to your desired weight, but final weights will not be exact. If you would like to reserve a ham for the Christmas Holliday, they will be available for reservation after November 27th.
