Thanksgiving Market and Farm Updates

We hope you’re staying warm and know that we miss you already. We want to thank you all again for a wonderful season and all of your support.

Thanksgiving is coming up soon and we wanted to let you know that we are offering a Thanksgiving Basket filled with parsley (1 bunch), parsnips (3), cabbage (1), leeks (4), carrots (6), potatoes (3 pounds), garlic (2), onions (1 red and 2 yellow), mustards (1 bunch), winter squash (1 sugar pie pumpkin, 2 decorative gourds and 1 acorn squash) and celery root (1) for a $70.00 purchase. For folks that are signing up for Vibrant Valley Farm’s 2015 CSA program and paying a $200.00 deposit before Saturday November 22nd, we are offering this Thanksgiving basket for free!

Folks can pick up their holiday basket at our Thanksgiving market the Saturday before the holiday, November 22nd, at Division Wines from 2pm-5pm. If folks aren’t interested in signing up currently or at all, you can come and check out the market and grab items that you are interested in for your dinner. We will have honey from the farm for sale as well!

We also want to let you know we are yet again moving farms. We will be on Sauvie Island next season and are very excited to be closer to you all and to our other customers. Being on Sauvie Island will allow us more space and to begin educational programming with urban youth. We have already been working hard to prepare the new space for next season. We have spread lime and compost, created raised beds and planted garlic and flowers, parked an Avion trailer for our office and a shipping container for our storage and are getting ready to learn a lot and have a great season. We will be inviting you out in the spring to check it out! Here are some pictures from the new spot on Sauvie Island.

We plan to have Division Wines as our pick up site next year as well as expand to North/Northeast Portland and the west side of Portland.

Please forward this email to your friends and family if you are sharing a CSA box to assure they are up to date. And let all your friends and family know about our 2015 CSA program! 

Again, we couldn’t have done this without you and your support.

Thanks for a fabulous year and we look forward to next year.

Your farmers,

Elaine and Kara
