Preliminary Order for Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Summer is here and even though we do see some transition in seasonal items, I think you will enjoy the quantity and variety in this week's box.  Check it out!  As I am out of town for this month, please check directly with your local host to see what extras like honey and oils are available.  If she does not have what you need, place your order for our first delivery in July.  Just checking us out for the first time?  See our list of locations posted in the right column on our blog at 

Summer can get a bit hectic for our members and our hosts.  Please be proactive in communicating with your host about your summer schedule.  It is best if you can find someone to fill in for you if you will be out of town.  Sometimes the host can help with finding someone to fill in for you, but the best way to keep things running smoothly is to communicate!  LOL

Our goal is to provide the best selection year round and to help you get the most for your money in both quantity and quality.  All produce is certified organic.  Substitutions may occur.  We look forward to seeing you this Tuesday!  Don't miss the online payment options available only on our newsletter.  Not getting it?  Email Cyndi to request being added to our mailing list.

Raw Orange Blossom Honey - $30 half gallon, $16 for quart, $9 for pint  ($2 refund on jars)

Organic Oils - Olive oil ($10), Coconut Expeller Pressed ($16 Quart (with $2 refund on jar), $50 gallon ($5 discount if you supply a gallon size container

Our local egg supply has been growing.

Special thanks to Dave and Isabel Schieferly for inviting our community to their farm to see how they are building an organic sustainable farm from the ground up!  We love your eggs!  Dave and Isabel are supplying us in Redlands and Homestead with pastured eggs.  Their chickens are fed all non-GMO, soy free, organic feed in addition to munchies growing on the farm!  These eggs are $6.50 dozen.  Limited supply.  We may have extra available this month.  Contact me directly by text if interested by Monday noon.  Available in Homestead, Redlands and SW Kendall locations only for June.
Our standard option for $4.75 dozen is either local pastured conventional eggs or organic free roaming.  Supply for this organic variety was rather tight when the new year rolled in.  (Higher demand for organics this time of year.)  Things seem to be settling down and supply is more steady so we will order the organic free roaming unless unavailable.  Local pastured conventional is our substitute.  The price for the organic free roaming will be going up next pickup as our costs have gone up again.  Starting June 17 the new price will be $5.10.
Organic Coconut Flour:  Our family eats Gluten Free so I am always looking for good wholesome foods to supplement.  Tropical Traditions has a ton of recipes online using this healthy, high protein flour.  $10 per bag, 2.2 lb each.  7 bags available.

All Natural Insect Bug Repellent 4oz. For $6.50 bottle: ingredients include: purified water, org virgin coconut oil, org jojoba, plant based emulsifying wax, grapefruit seed extract, org virgin palm oil, and org essential oils of citronella, lemongrass, catnip, peppermint and tansy.  8 bottles available

Healthy Coffee and Tea now available

I have some on hand for $30 box (black coffee, late, mocha, hot chocolate) or $35 for organic (green tea, red tea, cafe supreme).
