A week’s share in August may contain tomatoes, corn, assorted peppers, peaches, raspberries, summer squashes, herbs, and eggplants. The variety will continue through Thanksgiving.
Our CSA season is 30 weeks, beginning the week of May 6th and ending November 26th 2013. You can join at any time during the harvest season, the pricing and number of weeks will be prorated accordingly.

Yes, if you find that you could use more than you get with your present share you have the option to upgrade to a Full Share. We will simply prorate the cost of the increase. Pick up day may be changed for a standard $5 admin fee. If you’d like to skip a week because of vacation, just let us know and you can get a double share the following week ($5 admin fee). Any changes in delivery need to be communicated 48 hours in advance.
Not to worry! Each week shareholders receive a newsletter to help acquaint you with the produce and its culinary possibilities. We are always available by phone or email, (and yes, in person, too) to answer questions about what’s in your box and what to do with it. We love talking about our produce and how to make it family friendly and delicious!
