(Friends, our August Farm Share is now sold out. Thank you so much Farm Share Friends for your partnership with our family and the local farm families we work with! To find out first about Farm Share openings coming soon, please email me at email@example.com to get on our waiting list. Thank you so much!)
Friends, we invite you to join us for the August Farm Share! August is going to be a great month for farm-fresh food, please click the link below to reserve your space now! You can still sign up to receive your Farm Share for three weeks in August, beginning next week!
What is the Farm Share?
The Farm Share is a weekly delivery of farm-fresh vegetables, eggs, freshly-baked bread and prepared options by Kayla, local cheeses, and cuts of grass-fed beef, pastured pork, chicken, and lamb. This food is as fresh and good as any food, anywhere.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to eat amazing food. Simply invest some of your current grocery store dollars into local farms and treat yourself to something special.
Mediocre ingredients make mediocre meals. You are extraordinary. Eat food that is extraordinary. You are worth it!
What is Featured in the August Farm Share:
We will have some nice produce in August, despite the summer heat! The Farm Share will include freshly-baked artisan bread and prepared items from Kayla. We will have fewer eggs in Aug due to the heat, but will have a wonderful variety of local cheeses each week plus all our cuts of protein–beef, lamb, pork, and chicken. August will be a great month for the Farm Share!

Baked Goods from Kayla!
We are so excited to offer Kayla’s homemade artisan baked goods in August! Each week, your baked will include one or more the following: freshly baked baguette bread, ciabatta, sourdough, farl, challah, focaccia, crusty cob, whole wheat, dried fruit and nut bread, corn bread, banana bread, or zucchini bread. You may get blueberry, pear, or carrot muffins, cookies, or one of Kayla’s many other wonderful baked goods. The baked depends of the freshness and quality of ingredients we are able to find.
You may recognize Kayla’s creations from The Bend Magazine, where she writes recipe articles each month featuring the best of farm-fresh food. Kayla is a registered and licensed dietitian who cooks mindfully. A lot of love and care is baked into her bread and prepared items!
Prepared Items Too!
Kayla’s prepared items may include: fresh fruit jelly, jam, marinara sauce, salsa, hummus, tzatziki, sweet red onion marmalade, butternut squash soup, homemade butter, lard, and ect. The offering depends on what we harvest or can find locally or organic. Kayla uses only the finest ingredients for her creations.
You may receive freshly baked pies, tarts, or cobbler. Or, even better, we may offer our own nicely packaged raw tart or pie dough with the filling preserved in a mason jar. Kayla will include clear and specific directions on how to finish your tart or pie at home. Our customers have loved this option because it is so easy to bake at home and allows your family to enjoy a pie, tart, or cobbler cooked to its perfection, hot and fresh, in your own kitchen.
A Wonderful Selection of Produce in August!
The hot weather has shut down most of our vegetables for Aug, but thanks to good planning will still have some nice produce for you! The selection will be more limited than most months, but designed to nicely compliment your Farm Share offering!
We will have small personal-sized pumpkins and exotic heirloom winter squash in August! Look for these beautiful heirloom varieties in August: jarralde squash, small rouge vif d’tampe pumpkins, rai Thai tok squash, blue Hokkaido, red kuri, butternut, tatume, and many others.
We will have a nice selection of organic potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, fruit, and other items from Kimmi’s organic produce. We are leaning on some high-quality organic produce to help us in these hot months.
We will also offer a variety of fresh herbs, such as basil, oregano, thyme, stevia, hyssop, rosemary, and sage. We pick these herbs and put them in water just prior to delivery so they arrive fresh, fragrant, and beautiful.
Thompson’s Dairy Farms Cheese every Week in August!
Each week, we will include the fresh run batch of cheese from Thompson’s Dairy Farms. This may be some of the best cheese you ever taste! August will include options for chevre, feta, gouda, fontina, manchego, and more. Soon, they will also offer yogurt which we will be thrilled to deliver to you! This Texas licensed cheese-maker sells their products through HEB, but we offer these excellent local cheeses in the Farm Share at a fabulous discount!
All Our Cuts of Protein will be Available in August!
In August, you will enjoy pastured chicken, grass-fed lamb, grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and fresh eggs. You will have access to every cut of pork, beef, chicken, or lamb we offer! In addition, you can choose from whole chicken or cuts of boneless skinless chicken breasts, packs of wings, packs of leg quarters, or backs for broth and stock. This will be a great month for choices.
These products will come from our farm, Turkey Hollow Farm, Whole Earth Farm, Groundswell Farm, Palo Verde Cattle Co., or Beverly Jacobson, all local family farms. We are thrilled about the amazing quality and variety of protein coming your way!

Hi Justin and Kayla! Always great to read your newsletters, and this was particularly good! “Mediocre ingredients make mediocre meals!” Oh SO TRUE! And I love that “Kayla cooks mindfully with lots of love and care!” I’ve been looking for a good apron, and those would make great slogans! Let me know when they’re available and I’ll buy several in all colors! Kayla’s baked goods sound WONDERFUL, too, even though we’re gluten-free. Oh, it makes me wish we were back down there so we could buy one of your farmshares! We’re not all THAT far away in Slidell, LA, on the north shore of Lake Ponchartrain (New Orleans). You may remember that we bought a second boat here 2 years ago, July, ’15, but still keep S/V Flying Dogs in Georgetown, Bahamas and drive/fly back and forth. Daren thinks we left Rockport much too soon, but he still wants to take this boat to the northern Bahamas. I kind of like the sound of Rhode Island in the summer, since it’s so hot here! We do love Slidell, tho! Louisiana has great food and farmers’ markets, but most everyone’s really large! Thankfully, we’re not fans of fried foods, but I’ve been warned to be careful by formerly thin friends at church, who weren’t from here, either! Food is love, life, and celebrated around here! Thanks for the link to Kimmi’s Fine Foods! I remember attending her opening celebration and it looks like things are going well for her ever-expanding enterprise! What a wonderful outlet for your fabulous farm fresh foods! I’ve really enjoyed following your blog posts and I’m praying for your continuing health and success! It’s so great that you’re educating and providing such a wonderful service! God bless you and your family, and Kimmi and hers, too! Much love from, Nancy, Daren, and Libby Tackis M/V Lagniappe
