New CSA in Richmond

April Muniz , the Operations Manager for Horse & Buggy Produce, a Local Natural Foods Cooperative, located in Charlottesville, VA, wrote the other day, letting us know about a new service they will provide with Ellwood Thompson's.

They are expanding their services to the Richmond area (one drop spot per week)

She writes:
Our season in Richmond will run from July 2nd – Nov 19th and we’ll be set up in the parking lot of Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market in Carytown on Thursday evenings from 4pm – 7pm. We offer the following subscriptions:

· Local Fruits & Vegetables
· Pasture-Raised Hens’ Eggs
· Pasture-Raised Meats (Beef, Bison, Pork, Lamb)
· Spring-Raised Trout
· Bread and Granola
· Pasture-Raised Chicken

The farmers that we work with in the Shenandoah Valley and Central Virginia have more produce that we can distribute to our current drop spots and we’ve had numerous request to expand our service area. We know that there is more demand than supply of local foods in the Richmond area and are hoping to work together with some of the existing farm businesses to help address some of this need.
