CARDINAL APIARIES – Pete Burt
FACSAP and its members are an important component of my customer base and I appreciate you. I'm in the midst of harvesting and bottling this year's honey, which has interesting floral notes. It will be ready soon for distribution into the Summer Shares, and for extra Honey Side Shares.
FOLK CITY SOAP – Heidi Lewis
I have prepared the soap bars made especially for FACSAP members, expected to be distributed in August.
There are 120 bars (in 4 different blends, approx. 30 bars each) plus I added 12 packages of my new zero-waste dish soap bar, in case members are interested in trying this for hand-washing dishes. These are very dense/hard soaps (not super-fatted like the bath bars) that come packaged with two small rounds of soap each—I use a dish sponge or brush with this soap to wash dishes as well as pots and pans, and make sure it dries between uses so it lasts longer.
The Soap is included with the Full Season Shares and will be available for direct purchase for the 10-Week and 4-Week Short Season Shares.
KICKSHAWS GLUTEN-FREE BAKERY – Kathy Craddock
Kickshaw’s Gluten-Free Bakery will not offer Bread Shares this season. We are happy to fill any orders placed for folks for either home delivery or pickup at the farmers markets. Place your order via the website: www.kickshawsfxbg.com.
