What to Expect - Week #8, Season 24
For Week #8, July 30th, of the 2020 FACSAP Summer Harvest, we anticipate the following this Thursday:
GUERRA GARDEN – José Antonio Guerra
Tomatoes (Big Mama & Big Beef)
Zucchini or Magda Squash
HARTLAND NATURAL FARM – Esteban Cabrera, Matz Groschel & Amir Davis
Mixed Potatoes – Yukon Gold & Redskin
BLENHEIM ORGANIC GARDENS – Lawrence & Becky Latané
Assorted Heirloom Tomatoes
ROCK RUN CREEK FARM – Francis Ngoh
Fingerling Potatoes (Moulin Rouge)
Blasquez Gardens – Christien Conniff
Cherry Tomatoes [enough for Large Shares only]
GREEN THUMB GROWERS – Tom Miller
Green Thumb Growers does not have produce for delivery to Fredericksburg CSA Project on July 30, 2020.
Although there may be small amounts of kale available for gleaning over the next several weeks, this crop has succumbed to the usual harlequin bug after four successive harvests. The subsequent, interplanted winter squash are established and under irrigation. I anticipate a mix of acorn, butternut and Seminole squash about the middle of September.
CHARIS FARM & HOMESTEAD – Jen Ferinde & Family
LATE SUMMER EGG SHARES now available! To sign up, go to the FACSAP website Side Share page: 2020 Egg Share
Pastured, organically-produced, soy-free, hand-gathered Chicken Eggs $8 per dozen.
The heat is really taking a toll the hens, resulting in decreased egg production, so I do not anticipate having any surplus eggs for direct purchase this week. Egg Shares will be distributed as usual. Looking forward to another great Thursday!
ALL THINGS FARM – Rebecca Bracewell & Wendy Williams
We will have bouquets this Thursday as usual. Thank you! -Becky

PÄLZER MÄDEL – Nicole Maynard
Prepared baked goods made from organic ingredients. Available this Thursday!
I would like to offer Zucchini Bread, Zucchini Muffins and Ginger/Ayurvedic Cookies for FACSAP members. I am planning on using Zucchini from Guerra Garden, organic all-purpose flour, organic Einkorn flour, organic coconut sugar or Sucanat and--when able to substitute--honey from Cardinal Apiaries, organic coconut oil, non-GMO Walnuts and non-GMO baking powder. In addition, for the Cookies - organic ginger and organic Ayurvedic tea leaves, organic and fair trade chocolate.
Zucchini Bread - loaves are roughly 4x12 for $10
Zucchini Muffins - $2 each
Ginger/Ayervedic Cookies - 8 cookies/bag for $8
I will make the bread and cookies fresh the day of and night before CSA pick-up, therefore I need to know the number of pre-orders by Tuesday 3:00 PM.
My capacity is limited to approximately 20 loaves and 72 muffins.
I can accept cash (if provided in exact change), checks or credit cards (via Square).
Pre-order by Tuesday 3:00 PM, July 28 required.

GOLDEN ACRES ORCHARD – John Thomson & Mrs. Scottie Thomson
We look forward to delivering another Apple Juice Share this Fall, along with the apple harvest for FACSAP members.
THERIANOS FAMILY ORGANIC FARM – Dimitris Therianos & Family
Dimitris has shipped the Olive Oil Shares from the farm in Greece via UPS. The shipment is scheduled to arrive in Fredericksburg this Friday, and expected to be distributed next Thursday, August 6. The Therianos Family is grateful being part of the FACSAP community and for our support!
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.
