No Shares Next Week! Plus An Announcement for Dupont Pick-up Members

Fireworks

Next week, in recognition of the July 4th holiday, we're giving our farm workers a week off. That means there will be no shares next week: No pick-up on July 4 or on July 7

We'll resume the following week with the Dupont Circle and farm pick-ups on Wednesday, July 11, and the farm pick-up on Saturday, July 14.

Meanwhile, many of you have been asking about the sales of grass-fed beef, especially if you pick up your shares in Dupont Circle. Here's some new information on that:

CLAGETT BEEF AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY AT DUPONT PICK-UP

As we've shared in recent updates, the Clagett Farm Beef sale continues. Garrett, who oversees the Dupont pick-up site, is offering to bring frozen ground beef to those who pick up at Dupont. The ground beef is $10/lb. If you'd like to purchase some beef, please email Garrett at least 24 hours in advance of the next Dupont pick-up. Here's how you can purchase some beef:

1. At least 24 hours in advance of the Wednesday pick-up (that's any Tuesday by 6 pm), email Garrett at gwaters02@gmail.com and provide the following information: 

  • Your name
  • Your telephone number
  • The number of pounds you would like to purchase
  • The Wednesday in which you would like to pick up your beef order 

2. Once at the pick-up, you can pay with cash or check. 

 
Don't worry -- we'll send out a reminder after next week's break about how all this works.
 
Thanks, everyone, and have a happy Fourth!
