All vegetable shares will be packed at the farm for safety and convenience, and will include a greater variety of produce than in past years, as well as free herbs and a newsletter from the farm with descriptions of each item and tips on how to best combine your weekly produce into fabulous recipes.
Veggie Shares typically include 12 - 18 different first quality, seasonal items each week, and are suited for one-or-two person households, or those who don’t eat at home much. The produce you receive each week follows in the footsteps of Mother Nature, so early in the season the share boxes will contain lots of luscious greens. As Summer progresses, items like corn and tomatoes will begin to appear, and when we hit the Fall, Hepworth's wonderful variety of root veggies get added into the mix. The majority of our members choose this share as it allows participation without being overwhelmed. This share is roughly 1/2 the size of our Family Veggie Shares.
22-week regular Veggie share (June 15 - November 16 weekly boxes, skipping July 6): $550
Fantastic deal as it’s over twice the size of our regular shares. Family Veggie shares typically include the same 12 - 18 different first quality, seasonal items per week as the regular Veggie shares, but in quantities suitable for a family of four or a vegetarian couple. Similar to the regular Veggie shares, the produce you receive each week follows in the footsteps of Mother Nature, so early in the season the share boxes will contain lots of luscious greens. As Summer progresses, items like corn and tomatoes will begin to appear, and when we hit the Fall, Hepworth's wonderful variety of root veggies get added into the mix.
22-week Family Veggie share (June 15 - November 16 weekly boxes, skipping July 6): $814
Both Veggie share sizes typically will receive the same amazing vegetable selections from the farm each week, just in different quantities. Both share boxes will also include fresh herbs to complement that week’s bounty, as well as a newsletter from the farmer describing each item and tips on how to best combine your weekly produce into fabulous recipes.
Know that no matter which Veggie size you opt in for, there is always an exchange bin set out at collection for all members to help further customize their shares. With the exchange bin, any member may place an unwanted item(s) inside the bin and exchange for something else (of equal value) that a previous member has left.
Between our Veggie Share size options, our Optional Share options, our distribution options and our scheduling options, we at Cream of the Crop offer you the most customized CSA experience you could find.
Sharing/splitting a Veggie Share with a partner:
You can always partner up with a friend to share/split either a Family Veggie or Veggie Share and set it up however you want, but you must work out the pick up and payment details between yourselves. Meaning, you can choose to come to the site together and divide the Veggie share, or you can alter weeks of picking up. You can even have one partner come early and collect the entire share(s), divide into 2 and then we can put aside the other 1/2 in a labeled box for your partner to pick up later that evening.
If you would like to split a share and don’t yet have a partner, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Chances are we have someone else looking for a compatible partner too.
