Each season we provide a wide array of produce using organic practices and principles from early June through October to our CSA member families. Once again this year we are inviting you to join us for a CSA season full of delicious, nutrient dense produce. You can expect to enjoy plenty of the classics such as tomatoes, beans, carrots, potatoes, sweet corn, broccoli, and much more. You can also expect a sampling of some lesser known varieties such as kale, Asian greens, and Chinese cabbage.
As usual, this season we are adding new crops to our offering. Some of these include basil, arugula, cosmic carrots, and brussel sprouts. We offer a regular full and half share, small and large choice shares, an early spring share and a late fall share. We hope that our farm can be a blessing to you and your family this season.
Each week throughout the season you will receive a variety of 6-12 or more items that are in season at that time. From strawberries and spinach in spring, to the bounty of tomatoes, melons, and corn in summer, and the potatoes and winter squash of late summer and fall. Each week you will arrive at your pick up site of choice to find a box of vegetables designated to your share size. You simply take the box home and enjoy.
The following week when you pick up you simply bring last weeks box back flattened and pick up a new box of fresh delivered produce from the farm. In addition to your box we frequently will provide you with recipes and cooking tips on how to use the items in your box. You also will be invited to a variety of opportunities to visit the farm throughout the season such as tour days, pot lucks and a pumpkin pick party which will all be on the agenda for this season.
Wholesome Harvest choice shares are designed to give added flexibility to our members while still maintaining the many mutual benefits that community supported agriculture offers to both farmer and member alike. Each week during a growing season you will be able to choose from what the farm has available on that particular week. As a choice share member you are purchasing a set amount of weekly CSA points. The small choice share has 12 available points per week while the large choice share has 20 points available each week.
These points are then used in our online CSA store in exchange for your choice of the items that are available that week from our farm. You control the items you receive as well as the quantity of each individual item (an “item” equals a point value). The only limitation to your choice is that you may not choose more than a quantity of 3 for one individual item (or some limits described below).
In addition to the choice of the projected 12-20 items each week, we will also make available bumper crop options for you to choose from. For example, in one week red cabbage was given to our standard members as well as our choice share members. After all members received their amount of cabbage, there were 50 heads left in the field. Those heads of cabbage would be offered as a first come, first serve option to you as a choice share member. The choice share stays true to the CSA model in that it will still be seasonal (you still can't get melons in October), it will still be a risk sharing as well as bounty sharing relationship, and still benefits the farm and consumer with a steady production and purchasing schedule.CSA Choice Share Info Packet
