|New Year 2014: Time for fresh opportunities and renewed energy. Wishing all of you the best for this new year!
On the Farm:
Our CSA deliveries are on hold for the time being as we look at re-organizing the farm to a more sustainable model with community support.
The farm stand is still open every day. It’s an honor stand so you just put your money in the slot. Thanks to Bobby Roark Electrical who designed, engineered and installed solar power to the farm stand in December so it’s all lit up until 9 pm.
Solar? Bobby @ 235-0795
If you’d like a box of veggies, just call ahead and we’ll prepare a box for you for $15. The box includes; a variety of winter squash, carrots, broccoli, kale, chard, arugula, herbs, lemons and edible flowers.
If you’d like to join our team of folks who are meeting to discuss alternatives for the farm (including BCorp, grant programs, community garden/educational components, and more), contact Ruth @ www.branchmillorganics.com or call 805-481-9205.
Our organic produce can be found weekly at SLO Natural Foods at 2494 Victoria Ave. off Broad St in San Luis Obispo. The Co-op has been carrying a variety of products from the farm.
We still have LOTS of winter squash that we would like to move. A BIG SALE here at the farm: 50% off all Butternut, Delicata and Kabocha.

We have a new Thyroid Support tincture which benefits both hyper and hypo-thyroid problems. Also we’ve created Snore Stopper and Sweet Sleep Aroma-therapy roll-ons which have been highly requested.
