How our weekly CSA boxes work
Local and Seasonally fresh vegetables of your choice, delivered straight to your door, with pick up available also!
Being a weekly CSA member allows you first choice at our vegetables and available products. Bi-weekly members will have access after weekly CSA members have had their pick. And then if by chance we haven't sold out, after our members have made their purchases for the week, we will then advertise to the public. As an additional bonus, this option also allows us to reduce members delivery fees by up to $50.00 for the entire season!
When you purchase a membership you are essentially purchasing a weekly $15 farmers choice " Base box "that will contain mostly a variety of greens such as Salad, Lettuce, Herbs, Rainbow Chard, Spinach, Kale, Sorrel, Peashoots, or Microgreens and maybe an occasional vegetable. We know many of you will want more variety of vegetables each week, so we look at this box as something to build on if desired (hence the term " Base box"). However we only wanted to ask for a small upfront fee, just to guarantee that our most perishable and labor intensive vegetables will not go to waste. Also we know some of you may have busy schedules and may not cook as much as you'd like. This box offers quick and easy way to get some local, fresh, nutrient dense salads, cooking and juicing greens into your diet.
In the past few years we've been unable to keep up with the demand for our salads as they have continuously sold out week after week. This upfront payment allows us to enhance our growing systems and washing station so we can increase our salad production without asking you for a large upfront payment that is usually expected from a traditional CSA. In addition we have spent more time than we would like on marketing every week. Taking time from our farming and our family. The upfront payment allows us to dial back on marketing during our growing season and focus more on the health and quality of our crops.
Weekly and bi-weekly memberships will be available.
And each week you will be given the option to buy ADDITIONAL VEGETABLES as they are seasonably available if you so choose (additional purchases are not required for delivery) You can expect the ease of your $15.00 farmers choice box to be delivered each week without you ever having to go onto our website. That being said, for our weekly CSA members, this will be a 22 week program, spread out over 24 weeks, allowing you 2 weeks of vacation or just a break. We do ask for notice though a few days before your scheduled delivery.
*We are excited to share our new available items with you, like Strawberries, Rhubarb, Blackberries, Asparagus, Garlic and their early season Scapes, along with a few others and many of your favorites from last years growing season.
