How It Works

Each week during the growing season (late May through early November) you visit the farm and pick up a share of the farm's seasonal harvest. Unlike many other CSA's who specifically dictate what you will receive in your share we offer choices. For example there might be twenty to thirty different produce items available. These are set out as units.

A unit is a volume of a particular produce item (i.e.: 6 sweet peppers is one unit, 4 lbs. of tomatoes is one unit, 8 cucumbers is one unit, etc.). You will be allowed to choose 9 to 12 units depending on the time of the season's harvest. All produce is available for discount purchase in addition to the CSA share.

* The above shares are only 3 of the 20 to 26 weeks. More likely, the size of the share will increase during the prime harvest months of July, August, and September.

* Remember all crops are weather dependent and susceptible to nature's ills. Therefore, some items will be early or late and availability of a given produce item will vary.
