Rocky Ridge Ranch Newsletter - Aug 10th

Hello Members and Friends,

    This is the 23rd delivery for the year. One more next week to finish the Summer Quarter session.  If you have not signed up for the Fall Season there is only two weeks left to let us know.


    The last week of August we will be on break and will make the first Fall Delivery on September 3rd.  If you are a half share Member taking deliveries on the 13th of this week, your next delivery will be Sep. 3rd.  If your last delivery is Aug. 20th your next delivery will be Sep. 10th. The Fall Season Quarter still has 12 weeks to end on Nov. 19th, the week prior to Thanksgiving.


Farm News:

    More new baby calves born. Still have more to come this Fall.


    Mixed up 10,000 lbs of hog feed to supplement their forage. Picked up two processed beef and stored in the freezer to provide inventory of beef for the Fall CSA Members. Those who were shorted a little on Beef last week will get a make up on Aug 20th.  As usual SO has been busy planting in the Garden even with this heat wave we're experiencing.
