Each year we are looking for folks willing to partner with us and become a part of our farm family. To help you decide if our Produce CSA may be right for you, here are the details to consider:
Due to our small size, the number of shares offered are limited and will sell out quickly.
How much produce is in a Basket Share?
Typically, a basket share can feed between 2-4 people, spread out between 2-5 days. We do our best to be generous with our produce as this goes to the heart of what a CSA is. You are partnering with us and in turn, sharing in the risk/reward. Due to the fact that all-natural farming has many variables beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the quantity or quality of the produce you receive. That being said, please know we will do our best to anticipate these challenges so that you finish the year as happy, satisfied customers.
What type of produce should I expect to receive in my basket?
Early in the summer season you can expect to see cooler weather vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, lettuces (head and leaf), salad mixes, arugula, swiss chard, kale, sugar peas, radishes, turnip greens, etc. As we move into summer, expect to receive sweet corn, carrots, garlic. onions, multiple varieties of beans, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini, black-eyed peas, purple-hulled peas, potatoes, okra, and fresh herbs just to name a few. Then moving into fall will see a return of the cool weather crops, plus sweet potatoes, beans, okra, zucchini, squash, peppers, tomatoes, winter squash and pumpkins.
I’m afraid I will get produce I don’t know what to do with. What help will you give me?
We try to strike a balance between vegetable staples and those you might not think to purchase. Each week we email shareholders a list of what we expect to harvest that week and a recipe to help you try something new. Of course one of the great advantages of having a small CSA is that we all get a chance to know each other. Feel free to call, or email us with any questions.
when is your csa?
In 2019 we will once again be offering a Summer and Fall CSA. Our Summer CSA is 16 weeks long and runs from the middle of May through the end of August. The dates for the Fall CSA will be announced closer to September.
Where and when are your pickup locations?
For our Summer CSA, pickups will be on Friday afternoons from 3pm-6pm here at the farm. In addition, Saturday pick-ups are available during our farm market hours, between 10-12 noon (also located on our farm). OR, you can choose to get your basket at the Hendersonville Farmers' Market, between 8:30-1:30pm.
What happens if I can't pick up at my scheduled time/location?
Should you be running late for any reason, please text/email us ASAP and we will be happy to prepare your share to be picked up later that evening or the next day (we will hold your prepared share for up to 24 hours). If you are planning to be out of town and unable to pick up your share, we suggest having a friend or family member make your pick up that week. (Please be sure to notify us in advance so we can ensure a great experience for your substitute.) Notifying us and making arrangements for missed shares is your responsibility. Should you miss a pick up without previously made arrangements or notification, we cannot guarantee your share for that week. We are unable to give refunds or credits for missed pickups.
How much does the csa cost?
