New this year...
Choose the 20 week program, or 12 week summer break
The season is 20 weeks again this year. We’ve had people really interested in mid summer when their kids are out of school so this year we’re offering a 12 week season option.

Pay in full by April 1, 2010 and receive a free pound of Higher Grounds Fair Trade Coffee or a trio of Florida Gourmet Salad Dressings and BBQ Sauces.
 
New Bonus Packs - Beef and Herbs are now available

We have fresh produce and eggs available. As you make your plans and grocery list for Thanksgiving dinner, please keep us in mind.

Thank you to those who purchased last week. We have extra available so if you weren't available last week, now is a great time.

Offerings include great Thanksgiving essentials like squash, potatoes, parsnips, onions, carrots, brussel sprouts, cranberries, tomatoes and more. Please see the order form for details.

Simply complete and fax the order form to 269-746-4393 or email your order to us at AvalonOrders@ctsmail.net. Within 12-24 hours we can have your order packed and available for pick-up. Or, if you're a visual shopper, give us a call and come browse the cooler to see what looks yummy.

We are pleased to offer fresh produce this winter! This is our first year offering winter produce so it's a work in progress, but our hope is to offer produce once a month to be purchased individually (no committment) with pick-up at the farm.

Here's the plan...
We'll contact those interested once a month with an order form of what's available with pricing. Orders can be faxed or emailed back and we'll pack the orders accordingly. Shares will be available for pick-up at the farm the following week.

We have limited amounts of some items, like salad greens this month, so we'll fill orders in the order until we run out of that item. Send in your order ASAP.

Orders are due Friday, Nov. 13 for pick-up next week and you'll have fresh veggies for Thanksgiving.

This month's offerings and prices are on the order form. (If the link doesn't work, please paste the following web site address into your web browser http://sfc.smallfarmcentral.com/dynamic_content/uploadfiles/258/Avalon%20Nov%20produce%20order.pdf) Offerings include great Thanksgiving veggies like squash, potatoes, parsnips, onions, carrots, brussel sprouts, cranberries, tomatoes and more.

Simply print the order form, complete and fax it to 269-746-4393 or email your order to AvalonOrders@ctsmail.net.
