Note on our procedures: we are strictly sanitizing ourselves and our work area and cutting entire wheels of cheese into substantial (1/2#-2/3#) pieces and wrapping them. We don't custom cut cheese, but know what you are receiving is super clean! Jot down what you'd like and add it to the comments box. We will do our best to pick just the right thing. JARS: 16oz jars (mozzarella, olives) we would gladly have those and any like them back!! Trying to keep plastic out of your Wine Shop experience

Organic fresh vegetables:  Milkweed Farm has a Tues-Fri afternoons farmstand on our porch. Bring cash or a check when you come to pick up your box. We never know what they will deliver, but everything they grow is beautiful!

Organic staples in house: 3# onions, 3# large gold potatoes (smooth skinned), 1/3# garlic,  1/3# ginger, 1# Heiwa tofu, 3# bags of carrots, Tortillas from Pachanga made with Maine grown heritage corn,: yellow, white (12pk), and blue (8pk) varieties. ORGANIC LEMONS are back
