SAMPLE CSA SHARES:
New members frequently ask what they can expect to find in their shares. Below are sample shares taken from our 2015 membership records. You’ll notice that in spring, shares tend to trend towards leafier greens like salad mixes, kale and herbs (and therefore tend to be lighter in weight/value), while in midsummer nightshades and cucurbits rule and fall sees more root veggies. We aim to exceed the market value of your share each week, and if our harvest ends up being a bit light in the beginning of the year, you can rest assured that we will make up for it with a greater bounty in summer! Indeed, by the year's end the value of your CSA membership typically exceeds the price you've paid and will include a few exclusive goodies you won't find on our market table!
Our shares are extremely seasonal, ensuring that we’re offering a balanced diet as mother nature intended it! We recommend them for one person who cooks vegetarian meals at home most nights, two people who cook omnivorous meals 3-4 nights a week, or to supplement the shopping needs of a larger residence.
SPRING/EARLY SUMMER SAMPLE SHARE:
A bunch of radishes, a bunch of hakurei turnips, a bunch of Pac Choi, a bag of salad mix, a bunch of kale, kohlrabi, and a bunch of mixed herbs.
MID/LATE SUMMER SAMPLE SHARE:
A bunch of kale, a bunch of chard, a bunch of mixed herbs (thyme, mint, sage), a bunch of pesto mix (basil, opal basil, parsley, mint), sweet or hot peppers, a couple of mixed heirloom eggplant, a bag of salad mix, tomatoes, and a couple cucumbers.
LATE SEASON SAMPLE SHARE:
A bag of salad mix, a bunch of turnips, a bunch of carrots, a few eggplants, a bunch of kale, a bunch of rainbow chard, a bunch of radishes, a bunch of thyme, peppers, and a bunch of herbs.
FLOWER SHARE: The flower CSA will include a loosely-arranged, seasonal bouquet of approximately 20-30 stems each week, wrapped in paper. Flowers are all organically grown and freshly cut the day of pick up, so expect 5-10 days of freshness from your blooms.
