Based on feedback from members, we are going back to the larger size vegetable shares this season. We will be including around 15 lbs per box like we have done in the past. Members are encouraged to share if they feel that it is too much for them. (Everyone is getting a better value per pound this way.). Please note that in order to provide a wider variety of veggies in the winter shares, we will be supplementing some additional produce from farmer friends of ours. Their farm is also Certified Organic and we will identify all produce and its source in our newsletters so that everything is transparent. We have hesitated “buying in” for many years, but we feel that it is the best way to provide members will more variety while keeping our sanity. (Most CSA farms already do this, but it’s taken us a while to feel comfortable with the idea and find a farm that has a similarly high quality of produce to sell.) Apple and Cider shares will remain the same as in past years.
VEGETABLE (organic): $112
This is a 4 week membership share.
Each box will contain 15+ lbs of the following crops grown on our farm and sourced from other local, organic family farms. (Actual crops depend on availability): Potatoes, Watermelon Radish, Purple Top Turnips, Parsnips, Rutabaga, Carrots, Beets, Leeks, Winter Squash and Cabbage. If we have a warm December, the first box may include greens from the fields. Exact contents to be determined.
4 deliveries @ $28 per box = $112
ou must have a vegetable share to qualify for add-on shares.
Add-On APPLE CIDER (non-organic): $23
This is a non-organic apple cider share (1/2 gallon jug) provided by Briermere Farms in Riverhead, NY. While the cider is not organic, the farm however, uses its own leaf compost to eliminate the need for chemical fertilizer and implements integrated pest management to reduce the need for insecticides. Herbicides have not been used in many years. You can read more about the farm’s growing practices here.
4 deliveries @ $5.75 = $23
Add-On APPLES (non-organic): $29
These are non-organic apples (4 lb bag) provided by Briermere Farms as well.
4 pounds of apples per delivery.
4 deliveries @ $7.25 = $29
Deliveries will be made on December 14th, January 11th, February 8th and March 8th.
