Pick up Saturday March 28, at Alprilla Farm 10-1pm. Order by Wednesday midnight.
Hello Friends of Cedar Rock Gardens,
We wanted to reach out with an opportunity to get delicious local produce, from us here at Cedar Rock Gardens and from our friends over at Alprilla Farm in Essex, along with a few other awesome local producers in bulk quantities at wholesale prices.
We Hope you are all keeping your head up in this time of uncertainty. Our friends Noah and Sophie Courser-Kellerman over at Alprilla Farm in Essex grow vegetables that are distributed in the fall and winter. They have had a terrific season this year and have enough food to be able to team up with us to bring you a vast selection of goods for a bulk order pick up. We have added our selections of fresh greens to their delicious roots, produce, wheat and beef options to give you the best local choice for all your eating needs.
Alprilla Farm is hosting the bulk pick up at their farm in Essex and all orders will be done through their new website (see link below). You will find a message from Sophie below detailing the pick up and how to order. We hope you enjoy the holiday season and we look forward to seeing you next spring!

From Alprilla Farmers Noah and Sophie
I trust this newsletter finds you and all your loved ones safe and healthy. We are having one more bulk order to finish out the season.
We don’t usually plan for selling food in March, but we are hearing an immense call for good food to stock up on. We still have some vegetables and grains from our winter stores plus some fresh greens coming in the greenhouse and it feels important to get them out and feeding people in these uncertain times. We also have a number of friends with considerable inventory on their farms. The bulk order platform we’ve been using since October is in many ways well suited to the situation: you can stock up on pantry staples and good fresh food alike with minimal exposure by ordering ahead. We’ll set it up so you can just pull in the driveway, grab your box and leave payment.
You’ll find greens, carrots, cabbage, radish and celeriac aplenty from us and Cedar Rock Gardens. There are mushrooms from Fat Moon Farm! Both aged and fresh goat cheeses from Valley View. Eggs from Grant Family Farm. Maple syrup from Iron Ox Farm. Sauerkraut from Pigeon Cove Ferments. Fresh milled grains and a fresh batch of tortillas from Alprilla and delicious beans from our friends at Baer’s Best in Berwick Maine.
On our ordering site, we had to do a little work around to enable pay and pick up in person:
Any trouble, feel free to email me. Ordering is open to everyone. Feel free to spread the word and share the link with friends!
