Bosc pears
You may refridgerate your bosc pears, however if you would like them to continue ripening, we recommend that you keep them on the counter.  Bosc pears do not turn soft - they still have a slightly crunchy texture when fully ripe.  When they are ripe, their skin will turn from a brown to a lighter gold, but they will still have a dark rough russet on their skin.  
 


Honey

Delicious and sweet!  Perfect in yogurt, on top breakfast cereal, and to sweeten tea.  My husband takes a "shot" of honey before and after a long run as it is claimed to be an instant engergy booster and helps to reduce muscle fatigue

Eggs
We purchase eggs from Weikert Egg Farm.  The Weikert family raise free-walking hens which are fed soy beans, corn and alfalfa silage (ground alfalfa).  If you have purchased meat as a CSA add-on, we procure the meat from the Weikerts as well.  
 
Lettuce
Crisp heads of lettuce from Brendt's Berry Farm.  They are a neighbor grower in Fairfield, PA (about nine miles away) and they grow hydroponic lettuce.  The Brendt's grow different varieities of lettuce - Butterhead, Red & Green Leaf "salad' bowls," Mixed Variety, Tropicana, Green Leaf, and more.  You can be sure to try a different variety each time!
