Dear %%user-name%%,


We don't mean to bother you, and this is the last note you will receive about this. But, our records show that you have not yet signed up for our Spring/Summer 2015 CSA. And, that's o.k.! But, if you want to and just haven't had the time, this is your friendly reminder with convenient links and phone numbers to make it easy. You can even pay later if you need to.

Richard, Amy and others have been working all winter to plant their best garden ever and will deliver first CSA boxes filled with healthy veggies, eggs and meats on April 30th! There are many options that are more convenient, but none that offer a full box of chemical-free, organically-minded, locally grown food that contributes to your good health.

If you'd like to sign up now, we've provided a link for you below. Or, just call me at 214-914-0323 or email patti_rosenberg@hotmail.com and I will do it for you. You can send a small downpayment anytime before May 15th to Waverly Farms, LC 2345 Lewiston Plank Rd., Burkeville, VA 23922.  And, you are welcome to pay your balance throughout the season.

Click here to begin your renewal process. Or just copy and paste the link below into your browser:

We look forward to having you back this season.

Hi, CSA Members -

Our dear hens have been producing like crazy and we finally have plenty of eggs.  If you'd like to receive eggs, pork sausage, beef, honey, spinach, swiss chard and/or lettuce, let us know how much and we'll add it to your CSA account and drop off your order on Thursday, April 2nd to the pick up location you selected. 

In addition to caring for our hens, goats, cattle, pigs, horses and llama Richard, Amy, Marissa and our newest apprentice, Michael Fraade, have been transplanting like crazy and our gardens are almost full with Spring vegetables.  Your first CSA box arrives April 30th.  

This is a great time to remind friends and family to enroll and receive the same farm fresh delicious food you will be enjoying.  Just send them to our website at www.waverlyfarmsvirginia.com (CSA Enrollment is in our online Farm Store) or have them call Patti at 214-914-03423.  

Happiest of Springs!!!  We earned it this year!

Thank you, Patti

Living the Country Life Magazine published a good article about us this week.  You can see it at: Going Natural.  Thanks nice photographers and writers for making our farm look great! Here is one of the pictures they took but did not publish. Nothing quite as adorable as a happy pig in mud. Lol.  It's not too late to sign up for our CSA.  CSA Member Sign-up

Hi, Everyone!  

CSA members have overwhelmingly requested Waverly Farms free-ranged, soy-free, Certified Organically-fed eggs during these winter months. We happen to have them and would love to sell them to our loyal members. Though we cannot justify the delivery costs to deliver eggs weekly, we can bring them to you monthly. Farm fresh eggs last for up to 6 months as long as they are kept refrigerated, so ordering a month's worth is very safe. 

We charge $6/dozen for our eggs. That's only 50 cents per egg and it costs this much to feed and care for our hens. Free-ranged, soy-free, organically-fed eggs contain more nutrients per calorie than any other food, including protein, all B-vitamins, Vitamins A, D, E and K, selenium and a host of other important nutrients. Free-ranged eggs provide 200% more vitamin E and significantly higher amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids (the healthy ones) than conventional caged eggs. Complete information about pastured eggs can be found in this research paper provided by whfoods.org.  

In response to your requests, we are offering monthly egg deliveries on these first Thursdays of each month:

  • February 5th
  • March 5th
  • April 2nd

We will deliver to our regular pick-up locations on these dates. For Home Delivery subscribers we will add $8 to each delivery and drop them at your door.

If you would like to be included in these special egg deliveries, please reply to this email with your egg order.  We'll add the charges to your Waverly Farms account, send you confirmation and an invoice, and deliver eggs to your designated pick-up location. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us at 214-914-0323.

Thank you!

Hi, Everyone!  

Our CSA delivery for the week including the New Year is scheduled for Thursday, January 1st. But, since that is New Year's Day, we are hoping you can receive your box on Tuesday, instead. You will not have received a box the previous week, because of the Christmas Holiday. Please confirm that you can pick up on Tuesday. Or, if that day is not good for you, let us know that, too, and we will accommodate you on Thursday.

Please reply to this email with confirmation or instructions.  

Your box this Thursday, December 18th will be delivered as usual on Thursday and includes weekly, bi-weekly and monthly subscribers.  

Thank you!  Patti

Hi, Everyone!

Just another reminder that there will be no CSA boxes this week. Your next and last box for Weekly, Bi-Weekly and Monthly (Protein Share) members is September 11.  

Richard and Marissa will be calling each of you for feedback and to help you re-enroll.  If you plan your meals around our box, it's such a bargain at $28 per week (Regular) and $43/week (Large). Where can you possibly buy groceries for $28? Not online, not at Whole Foods, not even at Walmart.

So keep us and you going by Enrolling Now at http://www.waverlyfarmsvirginia.com/members and enjoy a wonderful fall/winter harvest, including:

Butternut Squash
Sweet Potatoes
Leeks
Broccoli
Lettuces
Kale
Arugula
Cabbage
Carrots
Beets
Brussels Sprouts
Turnips

And much, much more!

Hope you had the happiest of Labor Days!  

Patti
