Sail Transport Company's

Petroleum-Free Produce Delivery, Saturday, October 3rd

 

This week’s produce is from:

Nash's Organics (Sequim), http://www.nashsorganicproduce.com/

The selection changes with the season and is finalized the day before delivery as the produce is picked. This week’s selection will likely include:

 

Small box ($25 single person): Turnips, hard red winter wheat, red kale, cauliflower or broccoli, green or red bunched onions, purple potatoes, spinach, Italian parsley, and kohlrabi.

 

Large box ($40 small family)A larger amount of the above, plus, zucchini, mizuna, chard, beets, basil, and fennel.

 

Raw organic honey ($18, Quart Jar):  From Buck Hollow Farms (Kitsap Peninsula). Our customers consistently rave that this is the best local honey they've ever tasted.

 

Our CSA delivery is once every two weeks on a Saturday.  Each box has a produce-related recipe tucked inside from a local Seattle chef.

 

How to order

Please use the order form at http://www.sailtransportcompany.com/orderform/  or reply to this email with your order or questions.

Please bring your food-grade Nash's Produce boxes from previous deliveries, because we reuse them.

 

Petroleum-free transportation of local, in-season, organic food

We do not use any petroleum fuel to transport our produce.  All of the produce is local and in season, and we do not mix and match produce from outside our region. Sail Transport Company is dedicated to supporting local farmers and the development of a local non-petroleum infrastructure for our future, beginning right now.

 

 

Petroleum-free discount: Anyone coming from outside Ballard using their own petroleum-free method or public transportation to pick up their produce will receive a 10% discount.

 

How to pick up

Produce will be available for pickup in Downtown Ballard at the locally owned business Kick-it  2607 NW Market Street, between 10 am and 12 noon. Kick-It is neighbors with The Quilting Loft shop and across the street from Limback Lumber.

 

Trip details

The boat, Whisper, crewed by Dave and Alec, will be sailing to Sequim Bay. The entire trip will be sailed engineless, and so absolutely no fossil fuel will be used. We dock at the Golden Gardens loading ramp next to Shilshole Bay Marina, where we will unload the produce onto locally designed and built electric-assisted cargo trike and bicycle-powered trailers, to continue to our drop-off point at Kick-It, in downtown Ballard. 

 

 

How to pay

 

1.  The simplest method is pay-as-you-go. Cash or check on delivery.

2.  Pre-paid installments: pay ahead and use as you’d like; we will keep track of your credit with us.

3. PayPal

 

Thank you for supporting us in building a local infrastructure which we can be proud of.
