Fall Greens CSA Program 2018
OUR FALL GREENS CSA IS SOLD OUT FOR 2018. WE WILL OFFER A SIMILAR CSA IN THE SPRING (MID-APRIL TO MID-JUNE).
SIGN UP TO OUR NEWSLETTER TO RECEIVE UPDATES. THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST!
Based on the success of our 2018 Spring Greens CSA, we are offering a new Fall Greens CSA program. This will take the place of our Winter CSA of past years.
A Fall Greens Share extends your season of eating locally, and increases your intake of farm fresh, organic, nutrient-dense greens. You will see and taste the difference from the grocery store.
What’s in a Share?
Our 5 heated greenhouses allow us to offer a unique Fall Greens CSA Share, after most summer CSA programs have ended. (See What is CSA? for more on this model).
CSA members sign up to receive 10 weekly baskets of greens from mid-October to mid-December. Each basket includes 5-6 bags or bunches of freshly harvested greens ready for salad, smoothies, or cooking.
Items will include spinach, baby kale, mesclun (mixed salad), lettuce, arugula, bok choy, swiss chard, mustard and Asian greens, microgreens, and herbs. Greens will be supplemented by a few other vegetables like garlic, beets, and if we’re lucky, a tomato or two. Contents will vary each week based on availability.
