Milk Lady Markets is excited to lead the way with an organic CSA Farm Share Pickup offered weekly by its new (Organic farm) member, Boxer’s Rest Farm at White Oak and Shady Grove Farmers’ Markets.

To kick-off the CSA to the community, Boxers Rest is offering a contest to win a full CSA share from June to October.  Interested contestants can enter to win at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1350565

“Adding Boxer’s Rest Organic Farm to our lineup of farms fulfills a goal,” announced Milk Lady Markets Founder Gigi Goin who has worked to attract a certified Organic farm, adding to its organically-grown farms at Milk Lady Markets.  “It is by popular requests by market goers and we’re pleased to partner with such a fine Maryland farm as Boxer’s Rest”.  “This is farm-to-table at its best.  As a CSA member, you’ll get weekly local, in-season Certified Organic produce from Boxer’s Rest Farm through a subscription”.  Goin says it won’t take away from shopping at the market because the other farmers grow different varieties so shoppers will have other exciting options of fresh picked fruits and varieties of vegetables, meats, eggs and herbs.

CSA subscribers can opt to pick up at White Oak on Saturdays or Shady Grove on Wednesdays. Starting approximately mid-May 2015, for 26 weeks of fresh Organic produce.  Click here to sign-up now or visit the markets to start your weekly CSA share.
