Week One

It’s been a productive and busy spring, with plenty of warm sunshine and long, dry days. More than ever we are seeing bees buzzing and birds fluttering around the garden. It’s satisfying to be able to support an environment that is balanced and to contribute to sustaining biodiversity. 

A few weeks ago, our neighbors (the Napa Valley Horseman's Association) hosted their 75th anniversary celebration. Part of the day included rides around BOCA. The scene transported me to a differernt era...

Today we'll launch into our third CSA season, and we couldn't be more thrilled to dive right into a bountiful harvest! We’ll see you from 3:30 to 6pm today. Eggs for both 10 and 20 week subscriptions will be ready for pickup today.
