My Csa Category: CSA Farm
For 2020, we offer one 20 week Farm Membership. We aim to have the first distribution of baskets in the middle of June. We are also working on collaborating with local ecological farms to make local fruits, eggs, cheeses, breads, meats available to those who would like to add them to your basket.
We think of our shares in terms of groups, and do our best to have something from each of the following categories:
roots carrots – beets – turnips – radishes
greens kale – spinach – arugula – lettuce – bok choy – swiss chard – mustard greens – cabbage
seasonal cucumber – tomato – beans – broccoli – peas – cauliflower – pepper – eggplant – zucchini – winter squash
herbs basil – cilantro – dill – parsley
alliums onion – green onion – garlic
We grow other types vegetables and they will be available at our farm stand, farm markets and restaurants. For our CSA members, we try to focus on the core needs plus leave room for fun and flavor. You may notice a bulb of fennel or a new variety of greens not mentioned above. We do our best to communicate the contents of each weeks basket so you can plan meals as soon as possible. We are also going to try some new crops like potatoes and hope to add them to the roots list!
PICK UP STYLES
Boxed Delivery Points get pre-made baskets, meaning that we choose the vegetables for each basket size, then box them up individually. We do a meet your farmer night (with market style pick up if the space allows) at least 3 times per season at each of our drop points. We want to get to know our customers.
Market Picking up at the farm operates closer to the Public Market Style, where you get to choose most of the items from a list. You also get to choose the exact vegetables that you want. Let’s face it, there are those that like Kale and those that like Swiss Chard. But there’s something about being able to choose your own tomato.
Mini This share will average 3-4 items per week. Mini Baskets choose 3-4 items from the Double Basket list each week. This share is popular with single person house holds or families who have their own gardens and are looking to supplement extra veggies.
Double This is our most popular basket size and consists of 5-9 items per week. In the middle of harvest season, the shares get huge! It is great for a couple people who like to took 3-4 times per week or a small family that may cook a little less.
Family Similar to the contents to the Double Basket, but with more mouths to feed, Family Members receive a larger quantity of the amount of the staples like salad greens, onion and roots. During peak harvest season, Family Members can receive up to 10 items and extra seasonal vegetables and herbs as they become harvestable.
PRICING & DATES
Our Farm Memberships range from $300 to $800 for a 20 week season. We aim to have the first vegetable basket available the middle of June. To reserve a share, you can pay in full or a deposit of 50%. The balance of the Membership is due on or before June 1, 2020. This helps us invest in things like seeds, seedling mix, payroll, compost early in the season, and allows you to not worry about paying for your veggies each week until the leaves fall from the trees.
PICK UP POINTS
Have you ever signed up for a Farm Membership program, picking up at a drop point, only to feel a little disconnected from the farmers you are supporting? We completely understand and do not want you to have a relationship with just a plastic box! At each pick up point, we will schedule 3 Meet Your Farmer events with market style pick up, each season.
