Still working on updating for 2018—please be patient

 

WHAT’S NEW?

There are some exciting changes for 2017!

First, we are offering a promotion to get more shares sold. Here is one offer we have developed: For anyone who gets 3 paying members for us, they will receive a special gift of one of these delightful gift-baskets made by our own Theresa Dahlin and filled full of great locally made items that anyone would enjoy. These are priced over $50 which is already a great price, but you can get it for free just by getting 3 people to sign up for our CSA! Be sure to let us know, or have your friends put your name on the ‘who referred you’ line on their sign up sheet.

Secondly, we are making it easy for you to help others. We want to be a blessing to those less fortunate or those unable to purchase a share but who would love to have one. So, we need to develop a ‘needy’ list…it can be an individual, or a couple or a large family. We just want to get a list together and offer the opportunity for folks to become a sponsor for a needy family.

An entire share can be purchased on their behalf which would provide them with good nutritious food the entire season that they would otherwise not be available to them.  We call this “sponsor a family” Or, if you prefer, you can purchase one extra box that can be given in your name (or anonymous if you prefer.)

Please send us any name that you think ought to make it onto our ‘needy family’ list. An address of where they live, and any little personal information that you’d like to add to help us consider them for the list.

If you decide to sponsor a family and you don’t have one in mind you’d like to chose, you may sponsor one randomly from our list.

Along those same lines, if you plan to be out of town for a week and would like to donate your box for that particular week, you are welcome to do so.

Don’t forget some of our gift items….do you have a friend with a birthday, baby shower, anniversary or whatever? We can deliver this along with your CSA delivery. Just send us a quick e-mail a couple days before that week’s delivery.

My friend and daughter-in-law Theresa has been working on making some gift baskets. I think she has a great idea!

This is one way to promote ‘local’ business as all of her baskets are filled with locally made products and crafts.

The first set she calls Honey Baskets.

Included is a jar of Dahlin Farm 100% pure raw honey gathered right here on our farm, a handsome handmade, fully jointed vintage style teddy bear, a short historical novel by local author about the days of homesteading in the Pacific Northwest, and two pair of hand-dipped beeswax tapered candles. This basket is sure to please everyone in the family from the youngest to the oldest. A great gift idea for that family on your list you’ve been wondering what to give for Christmas.

***PLEASE NOTE – NOT ALL BASKETS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. IF WE ARE OUT OF THE BASKET YOU WISH TO PURCHASE, WE WILL BE HAPPY TO MAKE ONE UP FOR YOU. PLEASE ORDER EARLY IF YOU WANT TO GET IT BY A CERTAIN DATE, HOLIDAY, BIRTHDAY OR WHATEVER.

You might like to browse through some of the other baskets she has: Baskets like ‘Coffee Lovers’ ‘Get Well’ ‘Baking Special’ and more.
