Crunching the numbers from 2011
Order forms sent to former members

Almost ready to take your orders

Wondering why you haven't heard from us yet? 

We're chomping at the bit, almost ready to send order forms to all of you who were members last year.  We're just waiting for a couple things.  With some luck, you should be getting an order form by e-mail next week. 

The Dupont Pick-Up

We're hoping to have the pick-up site in the parking lot of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, at 15th & P Streets, NW.  We're waiting for them give us permission.  It's terrific of them to entertain the possibility.  Let's hope they say yes!  Soon!

Credit Card Payments

We're also waiting for the Capital Area Food Bank to give us a web site for credit card payments.  To their great credit, they wanted to take a little extra time to make sure the security on that page is as tight as possible.  

We actually prefer checks

We pay about 2% for the privilege of taking your money by credit card.  It's about $11 per share paid by credit, which came to $1800 last year.  We thought it would relieve us of some of the work of processing your payments, but in the end it didn't.  So if you're willing to pay by check this year, that would be a big help. 

I just went to the post office and rented a box for the spring so we can be confident your checks will arrive, in spite of any snow storms that might come our way.  Our address (for the next six months) is P.O. Box 545, Upper Marlboro MD 20773.  The regular farm address still works (11904 Old Marlboro Pike) but the post office box is more reliable.  The prices are the same as last year.  We'll send you all this information again next week when send you order forms and ask you to sign up. 

For those of you who ask about the farm dog, Cassie, you can see how she's been making herself comfortable while we work in the office...

I would love to visit the farm. Let me know if that is possible.

Years ago I worked at PVF,WVF and Moutoux Orchard in VA. Am back from overseas and reconnecting to farming things.

Have a close friend who does a lot with Capital Food Bank. Maybe there is something I can do to help with that.
