What can you expect in your CSA share?
Our CSA usually runs 17 weeks, starting early to mid June (depending on the weather) and usually running through the first week of October.
We have two vegetable share sizes available.
The Full Share starts a bit slower with 7-8 items in June, but quickly grows to an average of 10-12 items (plus herbs) weekly. It is intended for a family or a couple who cook most of their meals at home and who like vegetables. The average weekly cost is $41/wk (total cost is $700).
The Small Share contains 5-8 items throughout the season. It is NOT a half share. It is more appropriately sized for single people and couples who do not cook most of their meals at home. The average weekly cost is $26/wk (total cost is $450).
One "item" is what I consider a full portion of that vegetable. For example - a half pound to a pound of cut greens (salad mix or spinach), a full bunch of carrots or beets, 2-3 cucumbers, 2-4 zucchini, 2-3 pounds of potatoes, 1 or 2 heads of broccoli (depending on size), 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of cherry tomatoes, a pound or more of beans or peas, etc.... Full shares will often get more of any item than small shares (small shares would get the lower amount on the ranges listed above, for example).

This summer we are also offering a Flower Share! We have loved growing more flowers for market and one of the sadder parts of considering a season without Markets is considering not growing flowers. We will likely plan our flower plantings based on interest in purchasing flower shares. Our flower share will run for 10-12 weeks depending on the season, likely starting in early July. Weekly shares will either be one large mixed bouquet or two smaller bouquets - I am hoping we will be able to offer some choice! Total cost $200.
