A big hearty thank you to all of you in our community for your support, love of organic vegetables and local agriculture, positivity and friendship! It has been a wonderful year at Red Dog Farm. We were so blessed with the amazing weather as well as all of you! There is much to be thankful for.
Below are just a sampling of thankful thoughts that spring to mind:
Compadres- Getting to work with fabulous people- the 2013 crew was top notch in both attitude, ability and fun. Thanks guys!
Chimacum– Every day I live and farm here I continue to feel surrounded by love, support, and positive vibrations.
Weather– Play it again in 2014! I know every year can’t be a banner year, but this one sure was. And for that I am grateful.
Community– All of you, whether we see you at the markets, the farm stand, or we don’t see you because you pick up your CSA share or shop at the Co-op, you all make this farm work.
Shelter– After six years of living in my trailer, I am graduating to a real abode, complete with foundation and insulation. Hurrah!
Family– Your on-going support and belief in the farm got me started and keeps me going.
Friends– You lift my spirits and offer fun and diversion when I need to take a break from farming. And you don’t mind that that’s only during half the year!
Land- This beautiful land sustains me, and all of you, with its rich soil and generous nature. I’m deeply humbled with gratitude.
I hope you all have much to be thankful for at this time of year. May your holiday be full of good food, friends, and love.

Winter CSA Starts Dec. 4th
There is still room left in our Winter CSA program! Cost is $150 small and $225 large. Winter CSA includes two weeks of regular delivery, then one final week of a huge “storage” share.
December 4th and 11th will be normal-sized shares, then December 18th will be the storage share.
What is a storage share? It will include lots of store-able items like carrots, beets, potatoes, winter squash, shallots, and the like, plus some items to eat within a week or two like Brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, and other green things.
Can I purchase only the storage share? Yes! The cost is $100 small and $150 large. This makes a great gift for the holidays!
