Fall CSA Share Opportunity!

We're At It Again . . . MORE Produce!

Our friends at Heaven's Harvest Farm have started a Fall CSA Share!

If you're not familiar with this great idea, a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for people to build a relationship with a farm. By making a financial commitment to a farm, the people become “shareholders” of the CSA and receive weekly baskets of produce. It’s a perfect (and affordable) way to eat healthy and support a local farm.

Shareholders will receive produce for about 8 weeks, at least until a killing frost, and pickup will be Thursday afternoons. Prices are as follows: Full Share $320 and Half Share $200.

Please Note: Shareholders must register for the Fall CSA by Friday, July 31. Payment is due by Friday, August 14. To register (or if you have questions), please call 978.741.0800 or crunchygranolababy@verizon.net.

Expected produce includes: Arugula, Beans, Beets (Red, Golden), Bok Choi, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage (Green, Red, Savoy, Napa), Carrots, Caulifower, Collards, Corn (Butter/Sugar, Gold, White, Indian), Cucumbers (Pickling, Slicers), Eggplant, Endive, Escarole, Kale (Dino, Green, Red), Lettuce (6-8 varieties), Onions (Red, Storage, Fresh white varieties), Peas, Peppers (many varieties- Purple, Red, Yellow, Orange, Chocolate, Hot), Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radiccio, Radishes, Spinach, Summer Squash, Tatsoi, Winter Squash (Acorn, Buttercup, Butternut, Carnivale, Hubbard, Sweet dumpling) and fruit like Apples, Late berries, Pears, and Plums.

What About Meat?

Interested in a local, grass-fed, organic, meat share?

Lucky for you, Houde Family Farm in Vermont is offering a deliver-based meat CSA. The farmer drops the meat right at your doorstep each month and, according to our meat-eating friends, is reasonably priced in comparison to other meat CSA's.

To learn more, please visit HoudeFamilyFarm.com.
