What options are available for this coming year?
We’ve expanded our options to fit a broader range of needs for different families. This year we are offering both half and whole shares of the Full Season CSA, 24 weeks of our own certified organic produce from late May through the end of October. We also have a more flexible Farmstand CSA, redeemable whenever the farmstand is open all season long- this option lets you choose what veggies you like and when you want them. For devoted locavores, we have a Winter CSA with lots of delicious greens, winter squash, and roots, from November-December. And to add a touch of beauty and cheer to your home, we have the Flower CSA, ten weeks of beautiful bouquets from July-September. Click here for more info on all these options.
We also are offering a CSA at the Ashmont Farmers Market. Click here for more information.
The Full Season CSA runs for 24 weeks, from late May through the end of October. You can choose to pick up your share on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Fridays during farmstand hours from 12 pm – 6 pm. Or, with the Farmstand CSA, you can come any time we are open– Tuesday through Friday from 12 pm – 6 pm, or Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 6 pm. We will be in touch weekly with a reminder (and some great recipes and the latest news about the farm).
What vegetables do you grow?
We grow a very wide variety of different vegetables. In the spring, you’ll enjoy peas, lettuce, radishes, greens like kale and spinach, spring onions, and garlic scapes. Early summer brings beets, carrots, green beans, zucchini, and broccoli. By midsummer, we’ll be into tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, and melons. And in the fall, we have hearty winter squash, greens, brussels sprouts, cabbage, potatoes, and more root crops.
Is the food organic?
We are proud that all the vegetables we grow are Certified Organic. The CSA includes only our own Certifed Organic produce. We often have fruit and other produce from nearby farms for sale at the farmstand, and while this is not always organic, we do label it so you know where it is from and how it was grown.
