Hello, I would like to continue with the CSA for 2018. We picked up at Pure Pastures on Telegraph. I didn’t see they are an option in the dropdown to register. Will this still be an option in 2018? They are a very convenient location for us and we frequent their stores.

Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Monica, did you get an answer to your question yet? Thanks for being a member. Pure Pastures will be an option again this year but only for half-shares (every other week) since not many weekly members signed up there. Hope this works for you and please email if you’re not able to sign up or have other questions!
