NOTES ON THE SHARE
We've received quite a few inquiries over the past week regarding the last week of CSA pick-up for the season. Lucky for you, Long Island has a long growing season, so we actually have a few more weeks to go! Since Thursday and Friday sites started a week earlier in the spring, they will end the week before Thanksgiving. Tuesday and Wednesday sites will receive their last delivery the week of Thanksgiving. Also, please note that the FRUIT SHARE ends this week.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT RENEWING FOR OUR 2015 CSA SEASON COMING SOON!!!!

FRUIT STORAGE TIPS
"The best way to ripen the fruit is to take it out of the plastic bag and let the condensation dry off so the moisture doesn't encourage any spoilage. As soon as it is ripe, eat it right away or put it in the fridge." - Farmer Clark, Briermere Farms
