Vegetables

PRICING & DATES BELOW ARE CURRENT FOR 2014.

Cost: $509 with donation / $484 without donation
Dates:
June 12 – November 6 (22 weekly deliveries, exact dates subject to change)

Each year Ted grows 10 to 15 acres of organic vegetables for his CSA shareholders, offering the widest possible assortment of vegetables. We’ll get salad greens and cooking greens, herbs, an assortment of roots, bulbs and tubers, and seasonal vegetables, including tomatoes, squashes, cucumbers, peppers, melons, and eggplant. We’ll have peas in the spring, beans in the summer, and sweet corn every other week from mid July through mid September. And we’ll have a wide variety of unusual vegetables that come in smaller quantities.

Ted does a very good job of growing an array of produce, while the whims of nature do a similarly good job of keeping us all guessing as to which veggies will be ripe when, and in what quantities. The key to enjoying a CSA’s bounty: flexible expectations!

  1. When are your summer pickup times? Thanks.

  2. Are there half shares available for veggies and fruits?

    We only sell full shares, but if that’s too much food for your household, we encourage you to find a friend or neighbor to split your share with. We can also try to pair you up with another person who’s looking for someone to split with–email us!

  4. I know it varies, but for the vegetable share, on average, how many family members do you think that will feed? Thank you!

      If we’re talking adult vegetarians who cook most meals at home, then two people per veggie share might be reasonable. If we’re talking adult omnivores who cook at home often but not all the time, then three people per veggie share would probably work out nicely. People who tend to eat out but want veggies in the fridge too might do well to split a share four ways. So yes it’s pretty variable but that should give you an idea.

      Keep in mind that share size fluctuates throughout the season, starting and ending smaller and being most ample during the middle third of the season, roughly.
