Andy will make sure it will be a good value. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience and a sense of adventure with these boxes. Enjoy!
Please note: all boxes at a given site have the same items in them. Please do not open them up to check. We are trying to minimize contact for everyone’s health and safety. Please only touch the boxes or items that you have ordered. Thank you for your cooperation and consideration of your fellow farm customers!
Lettuce, Chervil, Spigariello, Green Onions, Chard & Arugula: Remove ties and store loosely in bags in the fridge.
Apples & Carrots: Store in bags in your fridge.
Beets: Separate roots from greens and store each separately in bags in your fridge. Use beet greens within a day or two as a cooking green just like chard.
Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes: These are cured potatoes so store them in a dark cool, well ventilated spot, not necessarily in the fridge. Do not leave them out in the sun on your counter.
Fuyu Persimmons: This is the variety you can eat like an apple when firm. Store in a cool, dry spot, out of the sun. Can also be refrigerated whole in the fruit drawer or coldest part of your fridge and will keep for several weeks, possibly even months.
