Champaign, OH: A friendly reminder!
Please remember to pick your order up tonight from 4:30-6:30 at the Y so our wonderful volunteers do not have to track you down! We have to jump through a lot if hoops to do that and at our age, it just isn’t pretty. First, the warm-up suit doesn’t fit and sometimes the hoops even get stuck around my middle…geesh, just please pick up your orders!

New Grower: Johnston Family Farm
We are happy to announce that Russell Johnston from Johnston Family Farm will be providing the co-op with raw jersey cow milk labeled for animal consumption. Please see the description of his farm below and check out pictures on their facebook page.
“Our cows are pastured and grass fed (but we do supplement with rye grass silage when grass is in short supply, like now). They are Jerseys and Jersey crossbreeds and our butterfat level
usually runs around 4.5 percent so there is lots of cream. Since we are a licensed “Grade A” dairy, our milk is tested regularly by the state and the bacteria levels constantly meet those set for pasteurized milk and the milk is bottled in a clean, sanitary, inspected facility."

Co-op Resource Directory
Just by chatting with a few of you on pick up day I’ve discovered that many members have their own businesses/services in the local area. I would like to create a Co-op Resource Directory so that we can support each other in the community. If you are an active member and would like to list your service or business, please send me an email with your name, business name, brief description, website address and contact information. I’m looking forward to supporting all our local business owners!
Montage Farm Update:
Last week Montage Farm had 4 does give birth and some more are expected this week. They hope to list their raw goat milk very soon. Keep checking back to see if it’s available.
