Carlena Minor has been the egg producer for Local Harvest CSA for many years, and will continue to provide a fresh local egg share. She raises free-range chickens with non-GMO feed. The eggs will always be very fresh, so they will last for quite a while in your refrigerator.
The coffee share will come from Wake Up Iowa. Wake Up Iowa coffee beans are thoughtfully selected, roasted in small batches and packaged with love in Iowa City. We work with farmers across the world, many of whom are certified organic, fair trade and even biodynamic. We work everyday to bring the best coffee to the hardworking people in the state of Iowa.
Regina from ReginaBread will continue providing the bread share for Iowa City, as well as North Liberty for the first time this year! Regina uses fresh, local ingredients in season as much as possible to create many delicious flavors of bread. You’ll receive a different loaf each week (with a few favorites reappearing throughout the season). Flavors include the pesto baguette, white wine garlic, lake of the woods (wild rice and molasses) sunny honey wheat, sourdough, butternut sage, and seasonal focaccias. You can also find Regina’s bread at the Saturday Iowa City Farmer’s Market.
Bread shares on Monday will come from the Local Crumb, a small bakery located in Mount Vernon run by head baker Aaron Hall. Currently baking on his property, the bakery will soon have a home in the 1st Street Community building. We focus on naturally leavened breads, spotlighting organic Iowa milled flours creating crusty breads with an airy crumb. You can also find Aaron’s bread at the Winter Saturday Mt Vernon Farmer’s Market or the summer Iowa City Farmer’s Market.

Crow’s Creek Farm, a small diversified farm near Anamosa, will once again be offering local pastured pork and beef for order by members in season.
