CSA

Winter 2013-2014 CSA is sold out.

The winter CSA has been officially completed.  Despite the extreme arctic temperatures and unpredictable snow, all went well.  We were able to go from December through mid-February.

Spring/Summer/Fall 2014 CSA Program

Please email farmchicksproduce@gmail.com for availability.  I have opened a new day for CSA pickup only.  This has allowed me to open up more shares, but they are limited.

The 2014 Summer/Fall season will begin ar I begin when strawberries and asparagus arrive.  Each week you will receive those crops that are in season locally. Typically in the early weeks your portion will include some combination of strawberries, asparagus, lettuce, broccoli, greens, root crops, onions and cabbages. In late June and early July, you can expect to see the addition of tomatoes, potatoes (red, white and purple), cucumbers (regular and pickling), squash( large variety), zucchini (a large variety), and basil. In late July and August, your portion will include some combination of blueberries, peaches, figs, blackberries, plums, cucumbers, squash, peppers ( a large variety), herbs, tomatoes, eggplant ( large variety), beans, melons ( a large variety), and zucchini.  Typically the Fall CSA will begin with crops such as bell peppers, some tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, eggplant, hot peppers, beans, winter squash. Later in the season your portion will include some combination of cool season crops such as cauliflower, brussell sprouts lettuce, kale, apples, pears, cabbage, chard, radishes, bunching onions, beets, collards, sweet potatoes, and turnips.  The season ends toward the end of November.

Space is limited in our CSA and I operate on a first come first serve policy with priority being given to original members.  A discount is offered to those who pay in full.  I strongly encourage people to “team” with a CSA because it requires a weekly commitment on your part.

For our Spring/Summer/Fall CSA, you have a choice between a 1/2 share and a Full Share.  The 1/2 share is designed for 2 and the full for a family.  The quantity of items in a full share is approximately 75% more than a 1/2share.  1/2 shares also receive 1/2 dozen eggs when available and full shares receive 1 dozen eggs when available.

The cost of a full share is 850.00.  It is a long season and I offer a 10% discount if paid in full at time of purchase.  We accept debit/credit card payments.  A 1/2 share is 450.00 and I offer the same discount, if paid in full at time of purchase.
