Description

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.
