Stock up before the rain

We’re open today- Saturday, and we’d love to see you!

Did you know this is the first year that we’ve stayed open year-round?? Thank you so much for your support! It’s because of our great customers that we were able to make that happen! We’ve got even greater things in store for this upcoming year. Did you know we’re about to install our very first bee box? Yep!!

We’ve got a great variety of fruits and veggies… in fact, it would be a perfect weekend for some homemade chicken soup!

Check out an easy-peasy recipe here: http://coupleberryfarms.com/nourishing-chicken-soup-with-fresh-herbs-vistas-natural-farm-stand/

Veggie Highlight

Collard greens

High in Vitamin A, Potassium, and surprisingly have over one gram of protein in each chopped cup!

Our Newest CSA Pickup Location at Apothecary Off Main | Vista’s Natural Farm

We are incredibly excited to announce our newest partnership with one of our local favorites. We have officially teamed up with Apothecary Off Main in downtown Vista to bring you even more ways to pick up your CSA box.

 

I visited today to get some exclusive photos of all of the incredible products that are offered there and I was blown away by the quality and variety of products available. Besides their selection of amazing smelling and hilariously named candles, they also carry hand crafted beard oils and creams. Apothecary Off Main carries every available product by J.R Watkins, which has been making products since 1868. I can’t wait to share some new recipes using their natural spices! (( P.S. CSA subscribers get a special discount on these spices!))

We are opening signups today for our launch on Thursday, September 18th, 2014. Boxes will be available for pick ups on Thursdays, and there will be a limited amount of extras on hand if you want to try one out! We suggest signing up ahead of time, because the trial boxes will be on a first come, first serve basis!

 

Signup here today!! And remember, if eligible, you may be able to use PayPal Credit to make your purchase of your CSA Subscription for six months, interest free!

 

You can find out more about Apothecary Off Main on their website and say hello on Facebook. When you stop in, tell them we sent you!
