Box Contents:

2 lbs. Blue Heron Navel Oranges

1 lb. Yukon Gold Potatoes

2 hds. Romaine

1 bu. Spinach

½ lb. Arugula

1 lb. Broccoli

1 lb. Leeks

Box Notes:

This time of year, the potatoes start to sprout. They can be cut in half and planted if you have garden! Don’t worry about the sprouts for eating, just rub them or cut them off while washing them. They still taste great fried, steamed, roasted, or in soup.

The navel oranges are from Blue Heron Farm in Rumsey. They are CCOF certified organic. We will include oranges in the weekly veggie boxes through the end of February. Blue Heron Oranges are now available for purchase on the web store: 10 lbs. for $20 or 20 lbs. for $40!

Field Notes:

We are continuing to harvest carrots, greens, leeks, fennel, lettuce, and brassicas. The overcast days help the soil retain moisture. Over the weekend, we had some sub 30 degree mornings. 

Egg Subscriptions Now Available!

At long last, we are beginning to see the light, literally. We have been suffering a shortage of eggs here at the farm for some months now. Because of the lengthening light hours in the day our egg layers are beginning to produce more eggs!  We are happy to announce that we now have enough eggs to offer our csa members the option of adding eggs to your CSA subscription. Instructions below.

  • If you would like to add eggs to your weekly or bi-weekly CSA delivery follow this link to log on to your member page: https://csa.farmigo.com/account/riverdogfarmcsa
  • Once signed on, click the “Change” text next to your current Subscription located inside the Summary Box near the top right of your member page.
  • Next click the “Options” tab (at the top next to Shares) and select the number of egg dozens desired and your corresponding csa delivery schedule.

Eggs will be located in a box at your pick up location separate from your veggie box. Please only take eggs if they are listed next to your name on the sign in sheet. Each egg dozen will be labeled with the member’s name that they belong to. Please pay attention at pick up time and do not take eggs unless they have your name on them. If there is a problem with your subscription, or there has been some kind of mix up contact the office right away. Enjoy!
