Designed to provide a good variety of produce to a family of 4-5, though 2 vegetable enthusiasts could eat it up on their own. Includes 6-12 seasonal vegetables. You can expect to receive lots of greens in the spring and fall, and lots of tomatoes, peppers, and squash in the summer. Salad greens will be very consistent the entire season. Most shares include: an herb bunch, a salad green, a cooking green, a storage crop (i.e. onions, potatoes, winter squash), a root vegetable (i.e. radishes, carrots, beets, turnips), and variety of summer fruits (i.e. tomatoes, squash, beans, peas, okra, eggplant). We often will have a choice between two items (ex: parsley OR cilantro, kale OR Swiss chard), though this is on a first-come-first-serve basis and we cannot guarantee your first pick. Though you will not ever receive the exact same bag of vegetables in two consecutive weeks, we try to have some consistency so that members know what to expect and aren’t stuck with just unusual items they don’t know how to cook. $28 per week.
Members receive one loaf of bread (or bread item like packs of pita, bagels, pizza crust etc.) each week, baker’s choice. Our bread is made by hand using sourdough and a wood-fired oven. We source flour exclusively from Deep Roots Milling, who use a water-powered stone mill to grind regionally-grown grains.
Other ingredients are organic, locally sourced, or home-grown whenever possible. To give you an idea of what to expect, check out the “Bread” section of our online store. The bread share offering will rotate through almost the entire list at $8 per week, significantly lower than our retail price!
We are raising the bar on our flowers this year and hope you will consider bringing natural beauty into your home or business each week. We love growing flowers for their beauty but also to add diversity, habitat, soil carbon, and most importantly pollinator food to our farm ecosystem. We make Farm Bouquets, which are rustic yet bright and elegant! See bouquet photos here. Cost: $12/week.
Restoration Acres Farm Pastured Meat Share:
We love connecting with this farm which does a wonderful job producing healthy and delicious pasture-raised animal products. We have eaten for an entire week from one of their chickens, which are full of flavor and nutrients and make a delicious broth. This will be their third year as part of the CSA, check out their website for more information. NEW this year is a rotation in your share between chicken and one of their sausage products! We hope this change will provide your family with more diversity in their diet. Chickens and pigs are raised on pasture and fed non-GMO feed and moved daily to fresh grass. Cost: $475 for a total of 13 whole chickens averaging around 4.5 lbs as well as 24 links and bulk sausage (bundled together). The meat share will alternate weekly between chicken and sausage.
These eggs are laid by chickens raised on rich pasture and fed a non-GMO feed in addition to their foraged food. You can learn more about them here. Cost: $175 for one dozen eggs per week.
