Welcome to the new look of the Sunshine Farm Girl Co-op!

I'd like to give a big "Thank You" from Joanna and myself for all our dear members that have supported us from day one and to those who have joined us since. You make it joy to keep this alive and filled with activities for you.

There are some exciting changes to the co-op so be sure to go page by page and find out what is new! You'll be able to give your support in so many great and fun new ways. If you want to join in any of the new activities but need some help or have questions, please feel free to contact me and I'll lend a helping hand.

One of the great new changes is that you will be able to take part in some great community charities. Want to save money? Why not find a local farmer that raises organic vegetables or has a hen house full of fat and happy chickens providing eggs free of antibiotics and hormones. And, that's just the beginning of some of the great additions you'll find here.

I'll still share great and fun recipes, craft projects and more in our newsletter each month. But, you'll have the opportunity to purchase our annual membership kit and get even more great co-op perks!

I hope you will sign our guest book and leave a sweet comment about how you like all the new changes. We really look forward to your thoughts and it just puts such a big smile on our face and brings so much joy to our hearts! So don't be shy add your two cents about your great co-op community!

Here is a fun recipe for your next brunch or tea party! Enjoy!

Many Warm Wishes,

Marsha & Joanna
