Hey everybody!

The newsletter has a quick rundown of the last month.  It also has details about all the add-on shares.  Right now we have other local farmers offering up honey, eggs, pork, dry beans and grains.

This Saturday, Momma Marcy will be at the Northeast Family YMCA in Loves Park for Healthy Kids Day.  The Healthy Kids event is from 10-1pm and she will be there the whole time talking to everyone about the value of local food for your health.  She will also do a presentation about local food and CSAs around 11 or so.  

Next Saturday is our May Day Celebration! This is our first farm event of the year.  We have a great group of local producers coming to talk about themselves and the importance of local.  We also have the world famous Jon Walker playing live with special guest I Wish I Was. . .  A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Finally, YES!, we do still have shares available for 2014.  Please tell your friends and family, and anyone else.  We are about ⅔ of the way to our goal of 75 shares this year.  There is barely over a month until shares start so do not delay.  Remember we have pickups in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, Arlington Heights, Berwyn, Forest Park, Roselle, Wheaton, Elgin, Huntley, Sycamore, Dekalb, Rockford and of course, the home farm in Poplar Grove.  We know you know someone around one of those places.  Please let them know about us.
