Dollar General Parking Lot ( Henderson St and Fremont St) Wednesday 2:30pm- 5:00pm
The full share gives you the most vegtable for the price (it averages to about $23/week), and includes the full range of produce that we grow on the farm. It’s perfect for families of 4 or more who love to cook frequently. It’s also a great option to split between friends. This share runs the full season of May 22th through November 1st. When you’re signing up, be sure to select a pick up day and location that suits you best.
The full share gives you the widest variety of produce grown over the entire season (May – October), so you’ll get to try out our full range of different produce varieties. Typically, this share will include 6-8 different items in one week’s box, but it will focus on “staple” vegetables, with some specialty items on the side. So, you’re not going to get a box full of things you’ve never heard of – we bulk up the shares with familiar staple items first, such as (but not limited to) lettuces, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, potatoes, beans, and zucchini. Then, in addition to your staples, you might see a few specialty items, such as kohlrabi, beets, greens. Each type of produce will come in a manageable quantity for one week, and typically your vegetables will fill one large reusable grocery bag. The full share is best suited to families of 4-6 who cook regularly, or for smaller families who cook at least once a day or enjoy canning and freezing fresh veggies for later use. You’ll get the best bang for your buck with the full share, so consider splitting with a friend! An example of a summertime full share might include two quart boxes of tomatoes, two quart boxes of potatoes, four cucumbers, two onions, 1 quart box of green beans, a green bell pepper.
Mix and Match shares,Traditionally, CSA shares are put together each week by the farmer, without any option to customize. Mix and Match share will give members the chance to select parts of their own box every week. Here’s how it works: Mix and match share members will pick up at our Dollar General parking lot location, — up to 15 or so different items — depending on the season. With a large Mix and Match share, you’ll be able to take 6-8 different items of your choice from the table. So, for example, one week in the middle of July might have the option to take 3 things from this list: 1 quart boxe tomatoes, 2 large bell peppers, 1 box of red potatoes, 1 dozen ears of sweet corn; and 3 things from this list: 2 zucchini, 4 cucumbers, 3 onions, a pint of cherry tomatoes, 1 box of green beans, or an eggplant. Doubling up on one item would be an option, too (you want more tomatoes? you can take two boxes rather than 1, and just take one other item from the first list!).
Each week will vary some in its customization; in the early season, we’ll have fewer options, so you may only have 5 or 6 items to choose from. Mid-season and later, you’ll have more extensive options. We’ll have clear instructions posted at the pick up and included in our weekly newsletter, so you’ll always know what’s available.
The Half mix and match share is comparable in size to our traditional half-share option. It’s great for a smaller family.
