Bulk Basil Available

We now have enough basil to sell in bulk.  This offer may not last long, so this is the time to buy in bulk and make pesto for the freezer.  Help us save this crop before it flowers and buy bulk basil today!

Juice or Produce box add-on option
Laguna Fresh Produce
Are you getting a weekly produce box and want another one added on?  Would you like a juice box in addition to your produce box? You can order an additional box here.  The advantage to going this route is that delivered boxes will not have a double delivery fee.
Laguna Farm Juice Box
If you would like to get a juice box instead of a produce box, we can switch your box over.  Just give us a call.  Many members are opting to get a produce box one week and a juice box the next week.

Laguna Farm Happenings!

Dear Members,
Many of you are enjoying the opportunity to buy basil in bulk this week.  The crop is still growing strong, so we are extending the opportunity into next week. This deal depends on the crop’s availability so consider buying bulk basil today!  If ordering online is not your thing, give us a call and we will have it for you in the farm store.
     In addition to bulk basil, we can offer pickling cucumbers in 20 pound boxes for $25.00.  Pickling cucumbers do not necessarily need to be pickled and I enjoy them raw with no processing.  The skin on these cucumbers is thicker, so they are favored for relish, bread and butter pickles and dill pickles. These will come online next week when the availability increases.
     Lastly, please welcome Diego as our new delivery driver.  Diego is Nacho and Victoria’s youngest son.  Many of you know him from the Sebastopol and Santa Rosa farm markets.  We are happy to have Diego take on more responsibilities at the farm and he is excited about this new opportunity.
Be well,
Jennifer Branham
