The farmer's market season is coming to an end

As the end of September marks the end of farmer's market season we want to thank our community and invite them to stay in touch by coming to get our products at the farm.
The Camas, La Center and Battle Ground farmer's markets have been such an amazing experience for Dan and I this season. We have been able to meet so many people in our community. So many of you have listened to our story, taken our brochure, showed interest, given us great encouragement, and given us support by buying our produce and vegetable seedlings . Of course, some weeks were not as successful and inspiring as others, when rain, other events or simply busy lives caused some farmer's market days to have little customer traffic. Though, we quickly understood that any person's presence at the market could be truly appreciated. We are truly so grateful to have had the chance to reach out to all of you in this way. We've had great conversations and have build some true friendships in this process of attending the markets week after week. 
Now that the last few markets are in sight for the 2011 summer season, we are just getting ripe tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and are still harvesting plenty of great vegetables. We also are just starting to have eggs from our hens. Because of this we are hoping to interest you in coming to our farm on Saturdays between 9am and 1pm when we will sell produce and eggs just like we did at the markets. You could come on other days as well if you call ahead of time top make sure we are available. We expect to have summer produce until October and will continue to produce greens and salad mixes throughout the winter. To keep our vegetables fresh and available when you stop by, we will be buying a walk-in cooler. 
In addition, to selling straight from the farm we will look at the possibility of selling limited products at Pasta Gigi's in Battle Ground on Saturday afternoon and Sunday and will possibly find other outlets. We will make sure to post all this information on our website.
