What's in a share?
your share will be packed full of the best seasonal vegetables available in our fields each week.
The specific veggies you find in your box will change through the seasons: from radishes and lettuces in spring to zucchini, tomatoes & peppers in summer, on through broccoli and cauliflower in fall. Check out the pictures below for examples of what types of veggies you will see across the seasons!
Each share will contain approximately 7-10 different vegetables. Several of these veggies will be familiar staples, like kale, lettuce, carrots, onions or potatoes. Then there will be a few highly seasonal items: these will be things like broccoli, tomatoes, peas and zucchini. And each week there will be one vegetable that you might be less familiar with. These could be things like hakurei turnips or kohlrabi: items you're unlikely to find at a grocery store but that are delicious & wonderful veggies! We will include prep tips & recipes in your weekly newsletter with a special focus on these less-familiar items. We love teaching our members about new veggies that we really love!
***PLEASE NOTE*** We do not guarantee that you will get any specific number of items or any particular vegetable in any particular share during the season. Mother Nature can be a fickle boss, and we are at her mercy. We (of course) work very hard to ensure that your share is full of awesome variety and bounty every single week all season long, but joining a CSA also means assuming some of the risk that is inherent in farming. If you aren't comfortable with this uncertainty, we recommend looking into our Market Shares, where you can shop for what you want out of our weekly Farmers Market booth.
Our 2018 Vegetable Share will run for 22 weeks.
Our projected start date is June 5 and finish date is November 13.
Pick up will start the first week of June, which will put our final pickup in mid November. We will have a scheduled vacation week for all members the week of July 4th (no pick up that week). You will also have one floating vacation week that you can take whenever you need!
we will be offering one standard share size this season.
The share will contain approximately 7-10 different vegetables each week and be valued at $25. Offering one standard share will allow us to streamline our planning and harvest for the CSA, and we've landed on a size that we think will work great for most households!
This share size allows us to showcase the bounty & variety of our vegetable fields without overwhelming you with too many veggies. The share should comfortably feed 1-2 adults and up to 2 kids for one week. Remember: USDA guidelines recommend every adult eat 2-6 cups of veggies every day! We can all stand to eat a few more veggies, and joining a CSA is a great way to work toward the goal of a healthier diet featuring lots of delicious veggies.
We do not recommend splitting shares. We believe that this share size is a nice size to feed one household for a week. Splitting shares tends to cause confusion and miscommunication about pickup dates and payment. Instead of splitting a share, consider joining along with a CSA buddy: you can support each other as you go along on the CSA journey instead of splitting a share and ending up with just a few vegetables each week.
For folks who have been a member of our CSA over the past few years, this share size will be a bit of a change. The size we are offering this year is right in between our old Half and Full size shares. So if you had a Half share in the past, you will get 1-2 more veggies each week, and if you had a Full share you will get 2-3 veggies less each week. If you and your family really go through the veggies and polished off a Full share in past years, we'd suggest you consider purchasing two of this new share size.
CSA pick up
CSA Pick Up will be held on Tuesday evenings between 4:30 & 6pm at Flag & Wire Coffee in the Granary District in McMinnville.
There will be one set vacation week in 2018 the week of the July 4th holiday: we will not hold pickup on Tuesday, July 3rd.
In addition, every member will have 1 built-in floating vacation week that you can use whenever you like during the season. If you choose not to take your floating vacation week, you will receive one free share over the course of the season (pick up technically runs for 23 weeks, so if you never miss a pick up you will receive 23 shares).
EARLy bird pricing: $550.
Early Bird Pricing available January 15-March 15. Price goes up to $575 starting March 15th.
