Dines Farm!

Greetings!

If you’re a vegan/vegetarian, consider emailing this email to your meat-eating friends & family.

If you do eat meat, read on, and also consider forwarding this to potentially interested friends and family to support our other local farmer at the CSA, Jay Dines of Dines Farm.

If you’ve never seen it, or it’s been a while, here’s the NY Times article about their Hot Dogs…
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/05/dining/05dog.html

If you didn’t read this NY Times article on the safety of agribusiness Hamburger meat…this is a must read for anyone who eats meat (a good motivation for getting to know where your meat comes from) and for non-meat eaters (for yet another reason to not to)…
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/04/health/04meat.html

The next winter delivery from Dines Farm is this Thursday, March 18th. You must pre-order as they don’t plan on transporting all the meat they do during the CSA season (though they may well have a few things…like Eggs, Hot Dogs, Ground Beef and probably something chickeny …if you stop by and haven’t ordered in advance).

Pickup is in the parking lot in front of the UUFH from 4pm to 7pm. Larry will be in his van (and possibly Jay, too) and I’m sure he’d appreciate if you could pick up your order ASAP J .

You’re more than welcome to stop by and just say hi as I know Larry & Jay would enjoy seeing you all.

The remaining planned delivery dates for this winter season are…
April 1st (no fooling!) & 15th


TO PRE-ORDER FROM DINES FARM…

Please email your order by 12pm, noon, Tuesday, March 16th.. Allow more time for special requests.

Email your order to: dinesfarms@gmail.com
In this email you MUST include:
Your name
Your phone number
Huntington CSA
Otherwise the farm won't know WHO placed the order, WHERE TO CALL in case you're running late or haven't shown up (it happens...people forget) and WHERE the order should end up.

You should get a confirmation email. If you don't, call Larry to check on your order (914-403-5828). Also, call Larry if you have any questions or need help placing your order.

Payment is made when you pick up your order this week. Acceptable for payment are cash, a check, or a debit/credit card.


What:

Prices are per pound or as designated.
Prices are subject to change due to our increased costs for petroleum products and animal feed.

If you don't see something you're looking for...PLEASE ASK!


BEEF
Cocktail Franks - All Beef ($6.50)
Ground Beef ($5.00)
Hot Dogs - All Beef ($6.50)
Steaks:
NY Strip - Boneless ($13.00)
Rib Eye - Boneless ($12.00)

Other cuts are available - PLEASE ASK!

CHICKEN
I notice that there’s no price listing for Wings…give Larry a call (914-403-5828) if you want to find out the price before ordering

2) 2010 CSA Contract Info

Bill will be firming up the details for this year this week. Contracts will be sent out by email next week to existing members first, and then a few weeks afterwards will go out to potential new members.



3) Work deposit checks

They will be going out soon. You will get an email when it’s in the mail. My sincerest apologies for the delay!
