Dear Folks,

   The Fairfax Market pre-order list is available now. 

Gregg will be there on Saturday between 10 am and 12 noon to deliver bags of pro-ordered items.

Please send an email ocp@orchardcountryproduce.com  I will send you a price list of items available for pre-order for Saturday.  We are asking folks to please order at least 15.00 worth of items to make the trip worthwhile for us in traveling and preparing orders.

Please consider coming out and supporting our farm on this Saturday in Fairfax.  Thank you so much.  Let me know via email if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you then.

Louise
