You will receive approximately a bushel box of vegetables in season for that particular week. You can decide between a mix and match box at the farm or a pre-packed box delivered to your desired location. Early in the season boxes will be filled mostly with greens and lighter produce items and will increase in weight and variety as the season progresses. The box contents depend upon crop maturity and seasonal availability. They typically include: salad greens, cooking greens (kale/chard/spinach), cabbage, root crops (beets, carrots, potatoes, garlic, culinary herbs and fruiting crops (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, squash, etc).
You will receive approximately 3⁄4 bushel box of produce each week. As with the other share options, you choose between a mix and match at the farm, or a pre-packed box delivered to your location.
If a Large Veggie or Standard share offers too much, please find someone to split your share with. You can split your box with whomever you choose by either dividing each weeks share or alternating weeks. This can be applied to either the mix and match or the boxed deliveries. You work out the details with your splitting partner. If you are having a difficult time finding a splitting partner, send in your commitment form and deposit, and we will find a partner for you.
Regardless of share type, our intention is to have only one person per share sign on and fulfill the work hour requirement. The reason for this is to make the process efficient for us and to ensure proficiency in the work being done. Since the workers need to be trained for our needs and the way we do things, we feel it is necessary to have one person for the duration of the work requirement, not several people.
