What’s In A Box?
A common question we receive is, “How much and what kind of produce will I be getting each week?” We created this page to help answer that question. Below you will find a general sampling of our box contents for 6 different weeks in our 19-week season – first for vegetables and then for fruit. This listing represents a full family share. In order to determine what a half-share will be, you can divide the contents in half. Keep in mind that as the summer progresses, the variety of vegetables will change based on what grows in season. Also note that the first weeks’ boxes are not as full as later boxes. This is meant to be a guide. It is not a guarantee of exact varieties and quantities.

FRUIT SHARE (18 weeks):
