The share list for next weeks CSA boxes has been posted to the website. You can see it here.

From our perspective the first week of the summer/fall shares went smoothly. Thanks to everyone who made it so!

Josh in the carrot field, doing a check. The report: Lots of carrots!


Some of you may have noticed an increase of traffic on our facebook page this week. It was generated by a post that Josh posted on Wednesday night about the turkeys chicken that we had just picked up. We have since removed the post, but if you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact Josh or Patricia directly at patricia@taprootfarms.ca. Thanks!
