A few housekeeping things!
If you return your green quart and pint boxes we will reuse them! Also Bechard Family Farms will take paper egg cartons back to reuse (not the styrofoam ones please).
It's tomato time! You should expect firm ripe tomatoes from us most of the time. That means the tomatoes you get in your share will need to sit on your counter for a couple of days until they are soft ripe and yummiest. (If we sent riper tomatoes they would become sauce in your box - none of us want that!) Don't store tomatoes in the fridge - they will stop ripening and will get a mealy texture.
Remember, if you can't make it to your pickup, whether it's at the farm or at the market, just shoot us a text or an email, and we'll be glad to put it in the cooler at the farm for you to pick up at your convenience. Unless you have made special arrangements with us, we donate shares left for a week in our cooler to Ozarks Food Harvest, who are always thrilled to get fresh produce into their offerings.
I hope you're enjoying the tomatoes and cucumbers of summer; I know they find their way into every meal on the farm this time of year.
Thanks for choosing us to be your farmers!
Kimby, Curtis and the Farm Crew
