Our first box of the 2011 season will be delivered this Wednesday (June 8th)!
The Trempealeau drop site will be located at Don Hellrung’s office downtown (across the street from the Trempealeau Hotel). Pick up will be between 3 and 6pm. The Winona drop site is at Bluff Country Coop on the corner of 2nd and Johnson St. Boxes will be in the produce section and can be picked up between Noon and 8pm. Please keep in mind that if you pick your box up at the end of the day, your produce will not look near as nice as it did when we first packed it!
In addition to all of the amazing mushroom, egg, and herb add-ons we currently offer, this year we are also giving you the opportunity to buy a bread share from Renaissance Breads in Galesville, WI, and/or a coffee share from Fortunata’s Coffee in Fountain City, WI. You will find information for both of these shares in your first box along with a free coffee sample!
We will include a printed newsletter in each box. Newsletters will include an explanation of the contents of the boxes that week, recipes, farm news and stories, and upcoming events. We will also post the information on our blog/website: www.herbalturtlefarms.com so check it often. As an added tool for those of you who enjoy hiking in the woods, we have built a page on our website called “The Adventures of Fungiboy”. This page is dedicated to discussing and identifying mushrooms that are commonly found in our area. We are also very active on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin so be sure to find us on any of these sites if you are on them!
From time to time Herbal Turtle Farms will host different workshops and as a CSA member you will receive a 50% discount if you would like to attend any.
If you are ever interested in getting your hands dirty in the gardens or would just like to visit the farm, please give us a call and we will set up some time for you to come out! Please feel free to contact us anytime at:

We’re looking forward to being your farmers!
