How Does it work?
Instead of us pre-packing your box, like other CSA programs, you will have the opportunity to pick which items you want for the week. We have a large walk-in cooler where you will enter and choose the vegetables that best suit your needs. This way if you want to try new things, you can, but if you don't like to experiment you can just choose the produce you know and love. We are hoping this will eliminate waste and excess at your home.
In the past we chose what was in each box each week but the boxes were never big enough for all the items we wanted to give you. You will have a lot of choices of different vegetables that are in season. You can just take a few that you love, or you can take your portion of all that is available.
