“All ethics so far evolved rest upon a single premise: that the individual is a member of a community of interdependent parts. His instincts prompt him to compete for his place in the community, but his ethics prompt him also to 
co-operate”.

Aldo Leopold - A Sand County Almanac
This year we’re offering our two historically most popular options for our CSA shareholders to choose from. Our CSA boxes are 3/4 of a bushel, which is approximately 1 - 1/2 paper grocery bags of fresh produce.

The 20-week weekly full season plan:
This plan includes 20 weeks of produce beginning in mid June and continuing every week through October, including 
pre-season newsletters and 20 additional in-season newsletters to accompany your CSA box. The 20 newsletters will be delivered via email a day before your scheduled pick up date. The pre-season newsletters will come by email in late January through late May. This plan is for larger families, 4 or more, or for those who eat a lot of produce. A lot of two or three person families share a 20-week box with another family. Please see our printable CSA sign up sheet for pricing.  


The 10-week bi-weekly full season plan:
The 10-week plan begins the same week as the 20-week plan; but deliveries are every other week for the entire season, all pre and in-season newsletters are included. This plan is for smaller families who can’t eat an entire box of produce in a week. Mostly families of one or two who love fresh produce but have smaller appetites choose this plan.
Take a look at the vegetable chart, link at top of page, to see what vegetables to expect during the growing season.
