Summer and Fall CSAs
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
"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"
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.
Summer 2021 CSA runs for 10 weeks: The first week is June 22nd and the last is August 24th.
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.
Oh, you're convinced? Well, we have just the thing:
If I’m going on vacation and will not be able to pick up my bag this week, what do I do?
First off, just let us know! You can either receive store credit for that week or "pay it forward" and have your bag be donated to the local food bank.
If you get in touch with us we can hold your bag into the following day, 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.
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 will work for you, please email us and we will be happy to make sure you 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!
