The annual Honey harvest will be distributed with this week’s Shares! It is included with the Full Season Shares, both Small and Large, and will be available for direct purchase for the 10-Week and 4-Week Short Season Shares, and for those who would like extra honey.

 

Pete Burt, FACSAP Beekeeper, will be on hand with his local, raw honey for all who wish to purchase some. He will accept orders in two ways: 

  • Anyone may purchase honey in-person at the Fredericksburg pickup location. Pete will accept cash and checks. 

  • Orders placed and pre-paid by Wednesday, Sept. 2, at 8:00 pm will be delivered to you with your regular CSA share (including those who pick up at a satellite location).

  • Orders may be placed by emailing Pete at honey@cardinalapiaries.comPlease indicate your pick up location. Pete will reply with a PayPal invoice.

  • Pete has pint, quart, and half-gallon jars of honey available. The prices are $15 for 1 pint; $30 for 1 quart, and $57 for a half-gallon. ​

FOLK CITY SOAP – Heidi Reszies SOAP WEEK IS HERE!​

 

The annual hand-made Soap distribution will be included with this week’s Shares! The Soap is included with the Full Season Shares. Large Shares receive 2 bars and Small Shares receive 1 bar. The soap will be available for direct purchase for the 10-Week and 4-Week Short Season Shares -- as well as those wishing to purchase extra bars -- on a first come, first served basis.

 

21 bars (about 5 each of the 4 blends) will be available for direct purchase. Also available are 11 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. 

 

Lavender Castile Soap (90% olive oil)

Lavender & Patchouli Soap (this is my regular blend with olive, castor, and coconut oils)

Litsea Soap (this is my regular blend with olive, castor, and coconut oils)

Rosemary, Clary Sage, and Basil Soap (this is my regular blend with olive, castor, and coconut oils)

Litsea and Tea Tree Dish Soap 

 

$7.50 per bar/package

 

A self-serve table will be set up at the Side Share area at the far end of the parking lot for those who wish to purchase the Soap.

  • Soaps may be reserved by emailing Heidi at folkcitystudio@gmail.com.

  • Orders placed and pre-paid by Wednesday, Sept. 2, at 8:00 pm will be delivered to you with your regular CSA share (including those who pick up at a satellite location).

  • Payment by check payable to «Heidi Reszies» or Venmo to @folkcitystudio.

  • Please indicate your pick up location.

  • Indicate 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of fragrance, or dish soap, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

PÄLZER MÄDEL  – Nicole Maynard

 

Prepared baked goods, jams and jellies made from organic ingredients!

  • Organic Pepper Jelly available this Thursday!

I harvested our first peppers last week from the organic seedlings purchased this Spring from Aline Fisher/Seedling Source. They look beautiful!  I grew them in organic soil and used no pesticides on the plants. I only used organic vegetable fertilizer. 

 

I have made them into Pepper Jelly and would like to offer it to FACSAP members. I used apple cider vinegar from Golden Acres Orchard, Peppers from the organic plants that I grew and organic cane sugar (for the canning of jellies, I cannot substitute the regular sugar), and Certo pectin. The Pepper Jelly will be a bit spicy, but I can tolerate it very well, so it's not too spicy. 

 

4-ounce jar  $6

8-ounce jar  $9

Ingredients: organic white cane sugar, organic apple cider vinegar, organic peppers, organic habaneros and jalapenos, and pectin.

 

Cookies available this Thursday!

 

I'll bring gluten-free thumb cookies filled with homemade jam and made with coconut sugar. Also, gluten-free organic coconut macaroons with organic cane sugar, as well as walnut crunch cookes with organic chocolate and einkorn flour. 

 

$8 per bag

 

Delivery is this Thursday and can be offered until I run out. No pre-order necessary. 

I can accept cash (if provided in exact change), checks or credit cards (via Square). 

 

Thank you so much for your support.
Kind regards,

-Nicole
