We take pride in providing the staple vegetables within our CSA shares, but we also take the time to grow the varieties that are less common. CSA Shares are harvested and packed fresh so that they provide our members the best flavor. As the season progresses from June to October the varieties of fresh produce and herbs that we are harvesting will naturally change. By looking at the chart below, you can estimate when your favorite varieties are coming into season!
Every week we post an update to our BLOG. This will keep members informed on what is happening on the farm, it will list the produce that can be expected in the following week’s box, and we will provide storage tips and our favorite recipes which correlate with the variety of the week.

Some of the vegetables we are growing this year are:
Tomatoes, Potatoes, Corn, Green and Red Leaf Lettuces, Kale, Romaine Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Spinach, Sugar Snap Peas, Green Beans, Onions (green in the spring and dried in the fall), Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Beets, Radishes, Brussel Sprouts, Squash (we have acorn, buttercup, spaghetti and butternut varieties), Leeks, Pie Pumpkins, Carving Pumpkins, Red and Yellow Watermelon, Muskmelon, Cauliflower, Mustard Greens, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Jalapeno Peppers, Banana Peppers, Hungarian Hot Wax Peppers, Habanero Peppers, Green Yellow Red and Orange Bell Peppers, and Sweet Miniature Peppers.
Another benefit to being a CSA member is that we will tell you when canning surplus is available. We will be planting a late crop of pickles, zucchini, onions, beans, along with a few other canning favorites so that when the canning season comes, we will have plenty of produce for all of our CSA members at a discounted price. We are happy to deliver canning produce at your request along with your regularily scheduled delivery of produce.
This chart shows what produce was included in the CSA shares throughout the 2015 season.
