February 18: A Message from Michael Smolak

Earlier this week, ABC Television Network‘s Good Morning America had a very interesting story about our food source.

They talked about the negative consequences of manufactured and processed food versus fresh food from the farm in terms of health, obesity and the environment.

ABC’s final comment was: “Eat from the farms and not the factory.”

I don’t think it can be put any better or directly than that.

As we get ready to start planting our CSA crops, we are very excited. We have the best plan for this year’s CSA and great people on the CSA team.

We expect a dramatic improvement with our offerings this year.

For those of you who have been past customers, welcome back and for those new customers, you are due for a pleasant surprise.

H Michael Smolak Jr
