Dear Members,

     We are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday at Laguna Farm by opening up our farm store to the public and encouraging everyone to support locally grown and locally owned this holiday season.  Please note that during Thanksgiving week, we will make your CSA boxes on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Thursday members: Please pick up your CSA box on Wednesday so you can cook it up for the holiday!  The Laguna Farm store will be closed on November, 26th. 
     Are you looking for sustainably produced healthy gifts this holiday season?  Consider a Laguna Farm gift certificate or gift box.  Our online holiday department may have the perfect gift for you to give this season.
     Cookies For A Cause: We are hosting a Cookie Swap Party on December 8th from 2:00 to 4:00.  Please come with a dozen cookies, a $5.00 donation to our “Cash for Veggies” program and your good cheer.  Laguna Farm will provide boxes for you to take your cookies home in as well as refreshments and holiday cheer.  
Be Well,
Jennifer

 About Granny Smith Apples
Granny Smith Apples are a juicer’s favorite.  They are crisp, tart, juicy and blend well with most green juice recipes.  I always suggest that the best apple is the apple that is “in season”, so we are in luck that the Granny Smith from Devoto Orchards is in season now.
Try one of these famous blends:
Carrot, Granny Smith Apple, Ginger Juice
Beet, Carrot, Granny Smith Apple
Cucumber, Lemon, Granny Smith Apple
