Summer CSA Details

 

Our classic “full-spectrum” CSA has been running since 2012 and there are a few full share’s available for it for the 2018 growing season.

Please contact Mike if you would like to be notified of the 2018 Summer Program.

  • The CSA season runs for 20 weeks, and typically starts in late May, or early June – it really depends on the weather
  • Free Choice – CSA should be about people getting the veggies they want, so I offer free choice of which veggies you take home – and you don’t have to decide until you see what I have to offer.
  • Share contents: Primarily veggies, but also herbs and some flowers –  Selection changes with the seasons and the option for personalizing your share contents makes this a very flexible program, which our customers tell us they value.
  • 2 share sizes exist – small (suitable for 1-2 people) and ful (ideal for 1 veggie lover, or 2-4 people)
  • Some of the veggies I grow include:

Arugula, basil, beans, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, chard, cilantro, cucumbers, dill, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, onions, peas, peppers (sweet & hot), radishes, spinach, squash, tomatoes, turnips and zucchinis.

There are four pick-up options:

Collingwood (8:00 – 11:00 am at Collingwood Farmers’ Market)

Thornbury (11:00 – 2:00 at Thornbury Farmers Market)

 Farm – Thursday (2:00 – 6:00) *Pre-packed baskets with the option to swap)

Here are a few of the comments I have gathered from my anonymous survey that is sent out to all CSA members…
