Dear Tahoe CSA members,
We have been honored to have been your CSA farm for the past 21 years. Bryan started selling at the Tahoe City farmers’ market as a beginning farmer, and without the support of those market customers and the Tahoe CSA members over the many years, Natural Trading Co wouldn’t be the thriving, abundant farm it is today.
The farm has grown in many new directions, and we have an opportunity to run and manage the Tahoe City farmers’ market. With the new responsibility, we realize we don’t have the resources to continue to deliver boxes all around the lake. We will be at the Tahoe City Farmers’ Market on Thursday mornings, with Tahoe City CSA boxes available for pick-up at this market, and we will continue to deliver Truckee CSA boxes. However, we have decided to discontinue delivering directly to Kings Beach, Incline Village, Tahoe Valley, and Squaw Valley. This was a difficult decision for us, as we know that many of you have been loyal and enthusiastic customers for many years.
For those of you who have already subscribed, I will be refunding your credit card in the next few days. If there is interest in a customer-organized pickup (i.e. members take turns picking up boxes from Tahoe City), we’re more than happy to help you out.
Mountain Bounty and other farms offer CSAs in your neighborhood – check out Local Harvest for a directory of farms. And we hope to see you at the Tahoe City Farmers’ Market over the summer. Thanks for your understanding, thanks for your loyal support through the many years, and most importantly, thank you for choosing to eat local and organic. We’re very excited to do everything we can to support local farmers, food, business, and the community with the new Tahoe City Farmers’ Market.
Please don’t hesitate to call or email if you have questions.
Sincerely, the Natural Trading Co
