An assortment of 3 types of seasonal fruit, grown by neighboring farms and packed into a milk crate. There is only one size — no half shares. To see exactly how much fruit you might get in a box, visit our page “Box Contents” under the OUR CSA tab. Fruits are not organic. You must have a vegetable share in order to purchase an egg share.
- EGG SHARE — FULL AND HALF SHARES
18 weeks (early June – early October) — Price: $31.50 (Half, 9 weeks) $65 (Full, 18 weeks)
A dozen unclassified, unsized eggs each week. Although not organic, these eggs are laid by “happy” hens which are fed vegetable scraps and forage for insects and greenery (which gives them their golden yolks) all day long in the grass. Half shares receive a dozen eggs every other week. You must have a vegetable share in order to purchase an egg share.
- MAPLE SYRUP — ordered by the piece through our online store each week — Price: TBA
From our family-owned maple syrup producer in Elmore, Jon Keller, as well as a new producer Big Maple Syrup Works – Mike Stein. This all-natural syrup is ungraded, but it’s dark and very sweet; great for baking or pouring over pancakes. We have a limited supply of his pints and quarts. Order them by the piece through our online store and bring your payment to the pick up site the next week.
- RAW HONEY – ordered by the piece through our online store each week — Price: $5 per 16 oz. glass jar
Each summer, we rent bees from our very own beekeeper — Sawyer’s Apiaries. The honey that is collected is sold to our customers. This is the real thing — not pasteurized — with all its beneficial properties still intact. As a result, this honey will turn a milky solid color if not eaten within a few months. It’s still good for you, no matter what the color! Just heat it slightly and it will return to its golden, fluid color. Please note: our honey comes from a collaboration of local hives that are tended by our beekeeper, and may not be completely from our farm. Order them by the piece from our online store and bring your payment to the pick up site the next week.
- FOOD TO SHARE — at will donation
This is a donation to our “Food to Share” fund which allows low-income families to participate in our program on a sliding fee scale. Your donation of any amount helps offset the cost of our vegetable share for those who would not normally be able to afford fresh produce from our CSA. If you would like to receive a receipt for tax purposes, please make out your donation portion of your balance to Jewish Family Service.
Full payment is expected at time of registration. Please date your check for today’s date. If you would like to break up your payments into two checks, make the second check’s date no later than June 1, 2014. You can also break up your balance into more payments. Simply write a check for each amount, post-dated for the dates you would like us to cash them, and enclose it in the mail. Final check must be dated for June 1st, 2014.
