Designed to provide a good variety of produce to a family of 4-5, though 2 vegetable enthusiasts could 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, potatoes, 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. Full cost: $575.00
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. To give you an idea of what to expect, in 2018 the types of bread offered were: Walnut Raisin, Multigrain, Country White, Honey Oatmeal, Rustic White, Forest Corn, Bolted Wheat, Whole Spelt, Rye Caraway, Garlic Herb, Danish Rye, Sourdough Bagels. All breads are baked on the farm in our wood-fired oven. Full cost: $140 for one loaf per week
