For those who like most vegetables and enjoy trying new ones.

What's in a Box?

  • Seasonal fruit (blueberries, pears, and apples) from other local producers when available. Green Gardens strawberries.
  • Up to 35 vegetable crops and 5 herbs in the boxes.
  • Plus, recipes, cooking and storage tips, and meal photos via email and the farm's Veggie Blog.

 

The LunchBox Peppers and Sun Gold Tomatoes are sweet as candy

 Each weekly box is likely enough to feed...

  • A family of four light vegetable eaters for one week
  • A couple who are heavy vegetable eaters for one week
  • One vegetable-eating machine!

With farming, there are no guarantees. Excess rain, early and late frosts, pests, diseases, and lack of time can all hamper crop production. Fortunately, most things go right most of the time. Sharing the risks and reaping the benefits of the harvest is an integral component of the CSA concept.

Over the years, we typically only lose 1-2 crops (out of 35-40) every year. We aren't a new CSA making promises we can't keep. We've been doing this for years and have the know-how and confidence to produce healthy and bountiful food for you and your family.

Length of Season and Cost?

Every Other Week (EOW) Shares for those overwhelmed by the amount of produce in our weekly shares

  • Every Other Week A (June 7 - September 27) 9 weeks ($295)
  • Every Other Week B (June 14 - October 4) 9 weeks ($295)

Regular Season - Best Value

  • Regular Season (June 7-October 11) 19 weeks ($520)
  • This works out to just $3.90/day. Would you pay that to invest in your health and well-being? If you can find a way to cook even 1-2 more meals per week instead of going out, you will be eating healthier and saving money!

Can I Share a Box?

Sharing a box is perfectly acceptable whether you rotate weeks or share the box's contents. However, it's up to you to find someone to share with and sign-up accordingly.

3. Let us know by 7 PM on Tuesday (the day before CSA delivery) and we can make two boxes for you the next week.

No money is returned for boxes that are not used during the course of the season, nor is there any vegetable credit.
