CSA Farm Box Subscription
Farm fresh variety, season-long guarantee!
What is the CSA Farm Box?
The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farm Box is a 16-week subscription service from which you receive weekly assortments of our freshest produce. It’s super simple — subscribe once, and then pick-up your pre-arranged box each week, for the entire summer! The first pick-up occurs on Thursday July 16th, so we encourage you to order your subscription soon.
The CSA Farm Box is an amazing way to enjoy fresh, local and organic veggies consistently throughout the summer. And, we hope that the variety of each week’s box can encourage you to eat creatively and adventurously! The Farm Box program is also great because you’ll get first access to a wide variety of limited-supply veggies — no need to fight the early morning market crowds.
By participating in the CSA Farm Box program, you’ll be supporting us as a local, sustainable and community-minded operation. We love growing organic and doing so in an environmentally-friendly way, and your contributions help us to continue doing so!
In each box, we strive to provide a large variety of each week’s best veggies. Therefore, you can expect each box’s assortment to vary, apart from a couple staple items. While we cannot predict the exact veggies that will be in each week’s box, here is an approximate content breakdown, by category: 2-3 staples (eg. potatoes, carrots), 2-3 greens (eg. lettuce, spinach), 2-3 herbs (eg. dill, mint), 1-3 “what’s hot” items. “What’s hot” items refer to the produce that has been the most freshly harvested that week.
Once the subscription period begins, we will provide regular updates of the exact produce in each week’s box. This update will be posted on our website by Monday at midnight, under “This Week’s Box” within the “CSA Farm Box” menu option. This list might be helpful to identify items that you want more of, or those that you’d like but aren’t included that week. To add additional items for a specific week’s box, click here: “Shop” and specify that you’re a CSA Farm Box Subscriber.
