Milk & Wine Next Week

Hello Grand Street CSA Members! As we settle into the season, we wanted to let you know about two upcoming events. The first is that we have once again partnered with Milk Not Jails to have dairy products delivered during the season to our CSA. The first deadline for ordering is July 8th (Tuesday!) for delivery at the July 15th distribution. We will have MNJ deliver to our CSA about once a month this season. Future delivery dates will be: 8/12, 9/9, 9/30, 10/7 and 11/4. The second is a Mead Wine Tasting with Enlightenment Wines at next week's distribution. You will be able to purchase bottles or sign up for their CSA (Community Supported Alcohol!). See detailed information about both events below. We're trying to organize more events and tastings this season, if you have any suggestions please feel free to email the Core. See you Tuesday! Grand Street CSA Core 1. MILK NOT JAILS - DEADLINE FOR ORDER JULY 8th - DELIVERY JULY 15th Hello CSA Member, Place an order today for a special, one-time delivery of any of our dairy products to your CSA. In addition to your dairy share items, Milk Not Jails offers greek and flavored yogurts, kefir, cheese and more from the 7 family farms we serve. Deadline to place your order is July 8th at 8pm. Place your order here, and we'll deliver your farm-fresh dairy to your CSA pick-up the week of July 14th. This year, we've added some Catskill creameries that make beautiful cheeses and ferments you cannot find anywhere else in NYC! And don't forget we have the best price on Ronnybrook yogurt drinks in the city! We'll be adding more items throughout the season, so please let us know what your hungry for and we'll work with our dairy farmer network to find it! Don't see your CSA listed, contact us at milknotjails@gmail.com or (917) 719-6455 with any questions. Thanks, The Milk Not Jails Team MEAD TASTING - JULY 8th Raphael Lyon, head mazer at Enlightenment Wines will conduct tastings of his new seasonal line. Bottles will be available for purchase at retail price, or as part of a "share" of his Community Supported Alcohol membership which includes a mixed case of all the bottles at a significant discount. Individual bottles will be $25-35 each and will be limited to two per member. The 2014 spring share is a seasonal batch devoted to the bursting of life into the landscape, and are ready to drink now. All the wines are made by hand from New York State ingredients in editions of under 500 bottles, without pumps or filters and generally unsulfited and alive. Like all wine they do not need refrigeration unless opened, but must be kept out of direct sunlight. The full share (250$) is 12 bottles, three each of the above wines.
