Join Us for the Best of Summer

The most traditional of all the seasons. You do not have to be too adventurous to sign up for this season. Plenty of the main stays that you will recognize and probably have eaten more so then any other season . We still introduce you to and array of healthy new veggies that folks just do not typically eat or find in the store.

We have more land to grow on this Summer! We feel good about what is planted and growing. We have added a  “Best of Summer” season for only 12 weeks.

Perfect for those who only want the summer crops:tomatoes,corn,eggplant etc and not so many greens.If you have never been part of a CSA it is a good way to get your feet wet.The most traditional of all the seasons. You do not have to be too adventurous to sign up for this season. Plenty of the main stays that you will recognize and probably have eaten more so then any other season .

As a current Share Holder you will also have first opportunity to sign up for Fall, a sell out season for us. Summer baskets start out lighter with more greens, then it begins to get heavier with beans,cucumbers, tomatoes and leaves you begging for mercy with eggplant,onions,zucchini pumpkins and winter squash.

The first harvest is the week of July 9th, with the last one week of September 24th.

Each share comes weekly in a beautiful reusable harvest basket.

We think picking up at the farm on Wednesdays  noon to 2 p.m.,loading your basket from what we harvest and being able to do the occasional u-picks is the best choice.If  that does not work for you we do offer delivery on Saturday to  several Farmer’s Markets that you can pick up from. Arrangements can be made if you go on vacation.

Rather volunteer for a CSA share ?

Each season we accept a limited number of volunteers for our “Volunteer for Veggies Program”

Not limited to only field work, we need computer,tech and other work done as well. Some work can be done at your own home.This is a structured program with set times, dates, and place. You must commit to 4 hours once a week, 4 weeks at a time. We ask for this commitment so we know in advance who will be coming when and where and that they are trained on certain tasks as we do not have time to retrain people every week. In exchange for this commitment and work you will receive a Family veggie share for every week you work. If you would like to add any of our other options (cheese, eggs, honey, fruit, etc…) you can simply add additional hours to your shift or work more than one shift. If you are interested please send an email ,call or text.

Each week your share will include the “Weekly Weed” a newsletter that gives you hints and helps on what to do with foods that might be a new adventure for you and how to store your weekly basket of produce.We also have a recipe exchange that includes recipes from our experience of over 25 years of catering and doing events.

Members receive what is ripe and seasonal

We have never had less then 4 different items in a basket.Sometimes the baskets are full to overflowing and sometimes they are not as full.  That is the beauty of living in season! Look to see what our shares have in them each week .http://www.redacrefarmcsa.org/newsletter/
