CHOOSE A PICK UP THAT WORKS FOR YOU!
Our summer CSA share represents the full bounty of the main growing season in Vermont. Shares typically have 8 different items per week. At the beginning of the season, we will feature spring crops - lettuces, culinary herbs, radishes, and peas. We have some of the last of the stored veggies too like potatoes and carrots. As we move more into July, shares fill with more summer "fruits" like summer squash, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, all the while including salad crops and fixings. The share is colorful, delicious and nutrient dense!
Our Summer Veggie CSA is designed to be flexible - choose a pick up time Tuesday through Friday 9am-6pm. It is designed to cater to busy families and busy people who care about home-cooking and healthy meals, but need to be realistic in preparation time and items they know they'll use!
Our shares are a nice diversity and selection of veggies, but are not overwhelmingly large. They are designed to get used even for busy families/households that don't necessarily cook every meal at home. We also have partnered with one of our long term CSA members, Jen Albers, who writes up a handy weekly "meal plan" for what is in the share each week. Her suggestions have really helped families/individuals new to CSA figure out how to use up their shares in a delicious and simple way.
