Raccoon Forks Farms newsletter – Nov. 27, 2018

Dear Friends and CSA Partners –

We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! Were you affected by the amazing snow that hit southern Iowa over the weekend? We hope it didn’t complicate your travels.

Well, it’s happened again! This week is the last week of our fall vegetables and summer eggs CSA share seasons. It’s astonishing how fast the time goes! We hope you’ve enjoyed your eggs and your fall vegetables as much as we’ve enjoyed bringing them to you!
