Got Fennel?

Standard

Fennel was a mystery to me until I married the Farmer. Sure, I had read about it in cookbooks, but I don’t think I had ever seen a fennel bulb in person until a few years after the Farmer and I had been married. Fennel can be a little intimidating, but once you learn a few easy tips on how to use it you will fall in love (or at least deep like) with it. I love when fennel is in season and I am making a big batch of my virus-killing chicken noodle soup. Here are two tutorials that go over some fennel basics and tips.

Where do I sign up?

Standard

Sign up now for the 2022 season of our CSA! We deliver weekly to drop locations in Grays River, Naselle, Long Beach, South Bend/Raymond, and Astoria.

If you are from Skamokawa or Cathlamet and interested in getting our CSA, please email me at glorybfarms.csa@gmail.com. If we have enough interest and can secure a drop location, we would love to be able to offer this service to your area. It may be on another day other than Wednesday or Thursday.

Here are the links to our sign up and preference forms. They can be filled out online and will email you a copy of your response automatically. Once I have your forms, I will email you an invoice that can be paid online using debit/credit, or you can mail a check if you prefer. If you sign up in February/March, I will be billing you in early to mid-April. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! The best way to contact me is via email: glorybfarms.csa@gmail.com.

NOTE: Last year we changed our normal delivery day to WEDNESDAY for all locations except Astoria. First boxes will go out on Wednesday, June 15th for Grays River, Naselle, Long Beach and South Bend/Raymond. Astoria deliveries will remain on Thursdays. The first delivery to Astoria this year will be Thursday, June 16th. The season is 23 weeks long. It extends until November 16th/17th.

There are two different size options: Regular Share (8-12 items) and Small Share (4-6 items). Regular Share boxes are $31 each week; Small Share boxes are $19 each week.

You can sign up for either a Full season (23 weeks) or Half season (12 weeks). Full and Half season prices are:
– Regular Share: $713 for Full season, $372 for Half season
– Small Share: $437 for Full season, $228 for Half season
Invoices will be sent through email and must be paid by June 5th. We also accept 6 post-dated checks, one for each month June-November.

We do offer a monthly option at a slightly higher price. However, we encourage you to sign up for our Half Season option instead. This gives you 12 boxes delivered on the dates of your choosing. I will send out a form in mid-May for you to choose your dates, and you can change weeks if something comes up. If you are new to our CSA and unable to commit to a full season, this is an easy, flexible option which is more economical than the monthly plan.
