Fruit & Veggie CSA
Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Fruit & Vegetable CSAs! Read on for details. Any further questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
NEW! Choose our summer or early fall CSA or both!
You! And a partnership with Spring Ledge Farm.
A curated weekly bag of the freshest vegetables, with simple recipes for inspiration.
Health! Strawberries! Joy!
Another happy result of a CSA bag is that you get to skip the lines. Just tell an SLF employee your name and they'll bring your bag of goodies on the double.
The weekly shares include a few standards: leafy greens, tomatoes, and fruits (blueberries, strawberries, etc.) are always in the shares if we can pick them for you. One bag during the peak of the 2019 season had:
Pint of Cherry tomatoes
Yellow squash x4
1 bunch Kale
.3 lb Green beans
Pickling cucumbers x4
1 pint Blueberries
1 quart small Sweet peppers
And here's a picture of another:
The value of these bags is $25 a week, which we find to be enough to be a bulk of the vegetable groceries for two people, or enough to supplement a family’s vegetable needs.
The summer program runs for 10 weeks: The first week is June 23 and the last is August 25.
The early fall program runs for 6 weeks: The first week is September 1 and the last is October 6.
Pickups will be any time during the Tuesday of that week, from 9am when we open, until 6pm when we close.
Pickups are at Spring Ledge Farm in New London NH at 37 Main Street.
If you are interested in the summer CSA, you pay $255 between now and March 1.
If you are interested in the early fall CSA, you pay $155 between now and August 25.
Oh, you're convinced? Well, we have just the thing:
"I like the combination of veggies & fruits. It was perfect!"
"I am very happy with the CSA" . . ."it has exposed me to some new veggies/fruits"
If I’m going on vacation and will not be able to pick up my bag on Tuesday, what do I do?
We are happy to hold your bag through the following day (Wednesday), so if that helps your scheduling, please take advantage of that. Please note that bags are not stored in refrigeration, so the vegetables will not be as fresh the next day.
Additionally, it might be a viable option to have someone else pick up your bag, whether they store the produce until you get back, or if they keep it as a kind gift from you.
If none of these options are viable to you, please email us and we will be happy to work with you so you can still receive the value of your bag!
What on Earth is a kohlrabi and how do I use it?
Each week we will send out an email detailing the items you will be receiving in your share. For any of the unusual produce, we’ll be sure to include an explanation as well as a few recipes. And even if it’s not unusual, we usually share our favorite recipes for what’s in your bag!
New this year:
We are only having CSA bags be picked up at the farmstand at 37 Main Street.
Instead of having to remember to write a check or grab some cash every week, we’ve simplified for you: just one payment in advance and you can pick up your veggies with joyful anticipation each week.
Reusable Bags for All!
