Box Contents

1 lb Yellow Carrots

¾ lb Russian Banana Fingerlings

1 Cantaloupe

1 Yellow Baby Watermelon

1 ½ lbs Early Girl and Heirloom Tomatoes

2 Slicing Cucumbers

¾ lbs Gypsy Peppers

Box Notes: Tomatoes and melons are happening in a big way this week due to the optimal ripening conditions we’ve experienced during the past two weeks. We are including 2 melons in the veggie boxes this week, a cantaloupe and a yellow baby watermelon. The cucumbers and melons combined together with just salt, lemon and chili flakes make a refreshing summer salad.

Field Notes: We are expecting hot weather again this weekend and next week. We will adjust the workdays accordingly by finishing early - by 2 pm most of the triple digit days.

Friendly reminder: For vacation skips, please contact the farm by Monday of the week you need to skip. We need advance notice for skips so that we can program the deliveries and adjust the harvest accordingly. Thank you and we hope you have a great summer!

CSA Special Offer: For the next 6 weeks we are offering CSA members a summer sale price on racks of Spare Ribs: $8/lb. (10lb minimum order)

Please email the farm: csa@riverdogfarm.com to place an order.

Pork Shares are available: The pork shares are a combination of smoked and cured pastured pork sausage and bacon along with cuts such as ribs, chops, and roasts. During the summer months, we also offer a custom BBQ pork share. You can choose from a selection of ribs (country, spare, or baby back), pork cuts and sausage for grilling. The pork shares are $8 per pound and range in total weights of 10 to 19 lbs. Please email the farm: csa@riverdogfarm.com to place an order. Riverdog animals are CCOF certified organic. Riverdog Farm meat is not certified organic due to being processed in an off-farm facility that is not certified organic. Place your order for Riverdog Farm’s pastured meats by emailing: csa@riverdogfarm.com.
