Take a gander at the photos to check out what's in the box and don't forget to read your CSA News, to get updates on the farm happenings, as well as recipes and storage tips!

Aaand pig pictures, for fun ;) My darling Cecil is very friendly. Not every pig like to snuggle like that! They are surely getting big very fast now.
