Hello CSA Members! A few notes about ordering cheese & meat.For more info on any of these items please visit our Product Description page.

Cheese & Meat
As soon as you are able, please go to www.earthspringcsa.com/login, type in your email and leave the password blank (unless you are a returning member and remember your password), click on "forgot your password" and continue to follow the instructions, you can create your own password that you can easily remember.  

Cheese & Meat are products that can be ordered week-to-week (i.e., do not have to be ordered for the entire season like fruit, eggs, & milk). New for 2015… meat will be delivered every week, like cheese, rather than every OTHER week, as in years past.

Order by noon Thursday to get these items delivered with your 1st CSA box the week of June 10th!
Order Cheese NOW
Order Meat NOW  (beef is on website now, sausage will be on website tomorrow, and chicken will be there to order in the summer)

 

Fruit, Egg, and Milk Shares

Let me know if you have any questions or problems.      

Thanks, Jamie

Hello friends!
 
This email was sent to Farmer Mike earlier this week.  It is about a Frontline documentary entitled "The Trouble with Chicken" where they investigate the spread of dangerous pathogens in meat, focusing primarily on poultry.
 
This documentary articulates one of the many reasons we love to raise our egg layer and meat chickens as free range and Non-GMO here at Earth Spring Farm.
 

 
Dear Mike,
 
“The strains of Salmonella are tougher, stronger, and many of them are antibiotic-resistant.”

That’s Caroline Smith DeWaal, food safety director here at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, interviewed in an important episode of Frontline airing tomorrow night on PBS stations.

CSPI has twice petitioned the U.S. Department of Agriculture to treat these antibiotic-resistant strains of Salmonella as adulterants—and to keep chicken tainted with those strains out of commerce.  Yet USDA continues to take action only after outbreaks sicken consumers.

Check your local listings and watch a preview for the episode here.


If you’d like to tell USDA to take action before people get sick—and require controls and testing for antibiotic-resistant Salmonella—take action here.

Michael F. Jacobson

Executive Director
Center for Science in the Public Interest

As of now milk can only be purchased for the season, no longer on a weekly basis.
If you sign up between now and Thursday night, weekly and biweekly Milk will begin next week (June 25-26) and monthly Milk Shares will begin July 9-10.

Milk options include half gallons of skim milk, 1.5% milk, whole milk, and chocolate milk in returnable glass bottles.
Delivery options include weekly, biweekly, or monthly (similar to Egg Shares).
For a list of delivery days for the different options please visit our Product Descriptions page.

Note you can sign up for more than one option. For example, weekly skim milk and monthly chocolate milk.

RETURNABLE bottle deposit fees are included in the share prices and are based on $2/bottle (that is the actual amount that we pay per bottle, so unfortunately we have to pass that on to you... but you will get your deposit back for all the bottles you return!)

* We will have 3 "bottle return days" during the CSA season where you can bring your bottles in a cardboard box marked with your name to your drop point and we will refund you $2 for every returned bottle. Bottle Return Days are: 1) Aug 6-7, 2) Sept 24-25, & 3) Nov 19-21.

DO NOT bring bottles to your drop point EXCEPT for the days mentioned or you will not get money back for those.

Visit our Prices page for more info!


If you have any questions or problems please let us know.
