Hi everyone,

We did it. We’ve made it through a summer full of delicious, locally grown produce. Spring onions, greens, melons, corn, squashes and apples; it really has been a treat.

First, some quick housekeeping. We will deliver the shares Sunday morning sometime between 10 am and 12 pm. This is the last share of the CSA Club, but we are going to ask that you come see us one more time Sunday 11/19. Since we’re doing deliveries for everyone, we will make the rounds so that we’re able to collect totes and containers to close out the season. We’ll even promise a treat for everyone so that you aren’t left empty handed.

Next, we want to make sure to give credit where credit is due, and show appreciation for Nichols Farm who did all of the truly hard work. Without everyone at the farm, Gard Mo could not do the work that we do. We also want to give a quick shoutout to all of the other growers and producers that we have sourced from throughout the season for Larder items and premium add-ons

Gard Mo exists because of our conviction that eating locally grown food is not only better for you, but better for all. In supporting the local food system, we strengthen our own community by reallocating our food dollars away from the consolidated, profit-driven, and high-impact large scale industrial food system. In the words of Todd Nichols (our farmer):

Our team on the farm is top notch and we could not do any of it without them. The farm employs around 45 people so when you purchase a CSA share from us you are supporting 45 local households and nearly every dollar goes right back into our local economy. Choosing to eat local not only ensures you healthier and fresher foods it also is good for every other local business.

Thank you all so much for joining us on the journey of our first season. It really has been an amazing experience for Lisa and me. We hope that you all have enjoyed it as much as we have, and keep an eye out for all of the things we have planned for the winter and next season.

Keep eating local.

Ben & Lisa
