What exactly is a weekly CSA box?



It’s pretty much just what it sounds like!  We provide you with a box of awesome veggies each week.  It’s a great opportunity for you to explore the seasonal veggie world, one week at a time.  Our CSA season is 20 weeks from the start date, which is usually around the middle of May.  A box typically contains 7-10 different items.  And, we definitely switch it up so you aren’t bombarded with exactly the same things each week.  If we miss a market one week, it will be extended by a week for you to guarantee your 20 boxes.  The value of each weekly box is around $30 in produce. 

 

We are open to offering payment options that fit your needs.  Please, give us a call if you’re interested!  828.236.1822


Ready to sign up?  Please, email us to send a check or pay with your PayPal account here.  If you mail a check it’s $500, if you use PayPal there is a $15 convenience fee added.

Considerations

We offer one size box.  It’s an average of $25 in veggies each week.  This is great for a couple that enjoys cooking most days at home or a family that’s on the go and isn’t always cooking at home.  If you are new to CSA’s and feel a little intimidated trying to maintain all the veggies each week, we suggest you find a friend or neighbor that’s interested in sharing the box with you.  We do not split the boxes for you and request that you please do not leave half boxes with us at market.   An easier way is to alternate weeks.  The veggies are super fresh and last many times longer than any store bought vegetables.  We’ve stored a fresh head of lettuce in a bag in the crisper for 5 weeks before it started to show signs of deterioration.  Just let that sink in for a minute....  Your veggies will easily stay fresh for 2 weeks.   We also require that you stick to the commitment of picking up the box on the same day each week.  If you will be out of town or can’t make it, consider gifting a friend!  Otherwise, all forgotten boxes will be donated at the end of market.  We do not reimburse for absences.
