The 2018 CSA has begun, but it’s never too late to sign up! Fill out a form on our sign-up page to reserve your spot now!
Designed to provide a good variety of produce to a family of 4-5, though 2 vegetable enthusiasts could probably eat it up on their own. Includes 6-12 seasonal vegetables (on average $23 retail value per week). You can expect to receive lots of greens in the spring and fall, and lots of tomatoes, peppers, and squash in the summer. Salad greens will be very consistent the entire season. Most shares include: an herb bunch, a salad green, a cooking green, a storage crop (i.e. onions, garlic, winter squash), a root vegetable (i.e. radishes, carrots, beets, turnips), and variety of summer fruits (i.e. tomatoes, squash, beans, peas, okra, eggplant). We often will have a choice between two items (ex: parsley OR cilantro, kale OR Swiss chard), though this is on a first-come-first-serve basis and we cannot guarantee your first pick. Though you will not ever receive the exact same bag of vegetables in two consecutive weeks, we try to have some consistency so that members know what to expect and aren’t stuck with just unusual items they don’t know how to cook. Payments can be made in halves, but the first payment must be made upon signing-up. Full cost: $550.00
Members receive one bread item per week, baker’s choice. The bread is made using a sourdough culture and typically has no commercial yeast, sugar, fats, or dairy added. Ingredients are organic, local, or home-grown as often as possible. This past year the types of bread offered were: Pecan Raisin, Multigrain, Stoneground Wheat, Country White, Honey Oat, Forest Corn, Rice Porridge, Onion Cheddar, Rye Caraway, Garlic Herb, and Pita Pockets. All breads are wood fired and come in pan or round hearth shapes. Full cost: $138 for one loaf, $260 for two.
This is a new option for members who want to boost their veggie share and get double of the cooking and salad greens every week. Basically, if you already get the regular vegetable share, with extra greens you will get 2x each of the greens in that week’s share (ex: 2 bags of salad + 2 bunches of chard + 2 heads of bok choi, plus the rest of the regular veggie share). It can also work as a mini-veggie share by itself (though instead of 2 of each greens item, members would just get one). It is a value of $8 per week, so it will be either 2 or 3 items per week. This option is $180 by itself, or $720 when added onto a regular vegetable share.
Add some color to your table! Every other week during peak season (June 20-Oct 3), members will receive a large arrangement of farm flowers. Our flowers last a long time and tend to be vibrant and a little wild looking! This share has 8 large flower arrangements, each with $15 value, a great deal for fresh & local blooms. Full Cost: $120.00
