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. A household of 1-2 people (or larger households who don’t cook at home every night) will find this meets almost all of their produce needs for the week. The produce you receive each week follows in the footsteps of Mother Nature: early in the season the shares contain lots of luscious greens; as Summer progresses, items like corn and tomatoes will begin to appear; when we hit Fall, Hepworth's wonderful variety of root veggies will get added into the mix.
Family Veggie Shares
Family Veggie Shares typically include 16 - 20 different first quality, seasonal items each week. A household of 3-4 people or smaller households with plant-based diets will find this meets almost all of their produce needs for the week. Similar to the regular Veggie Share, the produce you receive each week follows the local growing cycle. Family Veggie Shares also typically include at least 1 - 2 items not included in the regular Veggie Shares each week.
All members must subscribe to a base Veggie Share, whether a regular Veggie Share or a Family Veggie Share. In 2023 the options are:
22-week regular Veggie Share (weekly distribution from June 13 - November 14 weekly boxes): $704
22--week Family Veggie Share (weekly distribution from June 13 - November 14 weekly boxes): $858
14-week Vacationer's Family Veggie Share (June, September, October, November weekly boxes only) $567
The Exchange Bin
We always have an exchange bin set out at distribution for members to help customize their shares. With the exchange bin, any member may place an unwanted item(s) inside the bin and exchange it for something else (of equal value) that a previous member has left.
Sharing/splitting a Veggie Share with a partner:
You can always partner up with a friend to share/split either a Veggie Share. You can arrange to share/split however you like, but you must work out the pick up and payment details between yourselves. Some folks like to come to the site together and divide the Veggie share there on-site, some prefer to 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 half 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.
More than just veggies…
Once you are a member of the CSA, you can add other shares to your weekly order to customize your haul with everything from fruits to meats to bread to dairy products and cheeses!
