WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MEMBER OF A CSA
A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a local farming operation where the farmer and the consumers share the risks and benefits of food production. As a member of the Oak Spring Farm CSA…
~ You’ll be supporting a local farmer without the middleman which means making our community stronger.
~ Your fruits and vegetables couldn’t be any fresher which means they’re more delicious and more nutritious. We literally just pulled them out of the earth.
~ Its inexpensive. Vegetables from the farm are nutrient dense and last longer so they’ll make it to the end of the week without going bad before you can use them.
~ Your personal likes and dislikes (and any food allergies) are taken into consideration because with the Harvie CSA platform your share is fully customizable!
~We’ll send recipes each week to help you discover the delicious flavors of that week’s selections AND you will gain membership to our exclusive FB group where we discuss weekly recipes, talk storage tips and other great local items to pair with your weekly veg. There will be photo contests and all kinds of ‘just for members’ events.
~On vacation or traveling? Gift your week’s share to a friend, double up on your share the week before or the week after or donate it to the food bank in your name.
WHAT A VEGETABLE SHARE INCLUDES
Vegetable Share – You will receive fresh organic produce weekly for 7 weeks (mid March – beginning of May) or for the Whole season 26 weeks (May-November) .
Shares come in 3 sizes small, medium and large. Small shares include about 5 items, medium shares 6-8 different items and large are 8-10 items. What you receive is based on what’s in season, your share size and what your preferences are! This is a fully customizable CSA.
For example, a medium share in July may receive a bag of salad mix, a bunch of Red Russian kale, a pound of fingerling potatoes, a pint of cherry tomatoes, 3 onions, a bulb of garlic, 3 summer squash, a bunch of Italian parsley.
