It’s time for CSA boxes with C&T Produce.

Look at all the shares waiting to be picked up from the Farm Tent Stand in Stafford!  So exciting.

CSA Box #1 from C&T Produce

I picked up my first CSA box and it is packed full of so many goodies.

This weeks share will contain:
Swiss Chard
Spring Onions
I picked up a small box and here’s everything that was in it.  You can’t get any fresher than this.  Straight from the farm to my table.
