Our Fall CSA share represents the full bounty of the waning growing season in Vermont, beginning with the last of the tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and the fall crops like potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and winter squash. We also feature a wide selection of greens - from tender salad greens to many types of cooking greens. Shares typically have 8 different items per week. The share is colorful, delicious and nutrient dense! We also will begin to trickle in some tasty treats of items we have preserved (frozen) like basil pesto, apple sauce, and some other goodies.
The fall share ends in a celebratory way during the Thanksgiving week! That week you will receive a huge load of veggies that are sure to fill up your Thanksgiving Day table! Lots of traditional Thanksgiving items will be bountiful and you can achieve much of your shopping by having this share! It is a fun and great way to celebrate eating locally and sharing amazing food with your friends and family! If you aren't hosting Thanksgiving this year, well, then your fridge will be stocked with veggies that last, so don't fret!
Our 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.
