RP-Farm Happenings (Delivery 7 Fall/Winter out of 8)

Posted on February 6th, 2020 by Diane Riehm

Here's Prepping Day at RPfarm! Matt is hard at work packing baby carrots.

Unlike store-bought "baby" carrots, the carrots you get in your veggie box don't lose their beta carotene.

Why? Because carrots lose their beta carotene when the skin is peeled off. According to Jeanna Haggard assistant professor of nutrition at Bluffton University.  However, they still maintain their vitamin A for your eye health.

"Healthy soil makes healthier veggies, which makes a healthier you." - Farmer, Phil Riehm.

We're thinking SPRING! This video shows 1,000 plants that we put into bigger pots. We sowed the seeds for these plants in December.


We are big fans of knowing more about our community of veggie box members. We would like to ask you some quick questions.

It's actually a survey that we put together for all of our Fall/Winter farm share members to answer before we end the fall/winter season on February 28.

It's also an awesome way to add value to what we offer. 

Won't you please take 2 minute to answer the survey here and make a difference!


Do you ever wish you could look more at the "add-on" farm shares in advance of the summer season? Maybe, browse around to see what else you could have placed automatically into your cart (farm share) so that you have the convenience of setting it and forgetting it in advance?

Podcasts are popular these days.  That's because it's easy to learn from a digital audio platform.  Podcasts create opportunities to share experiences or events in your world. 

RPFarm's discussion from our latest webinar can be used similarly to a podcast.  Use the 
FREE webinar recording to listen to again, share with your friends and post on social media.

With the National CSA Day (veggie boxes) coming on February 28 we will be sending you other information to share as well.

P.S. Since you are already telling your friends, why not get them a HUGE bonus too?  Feel free to use your refer-a-friend link (in the menu of your personal profile page at $25.00 value.
