2014-15 Winter CSA Details
What’s a Share?
Winter CSA Shares begin November 18 th , and go through January 20 th . Each share
will amount to an overflowing half-bushel (between 5 and 18lbs., avg. 12lb) of produce each
week for 10 weeks. The cost of a full share is $300 ($30 per week).
Weekly produce amounts and varieties will fluctuate throughout the season depending on
which crops are maturing and the growing conditions. We grow all the vegetables on our
farm. We do not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides and carefully select our vegetable
varieties for color, flavor and disease and pest resistance.
Splitting a Share
Some people are concerned they will not be able to utilize the full share’s amount of
vegetables weekly. Others, who are new to the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)
experience, are uncertain how it will go their first season. A popular option is to split the cost
and vegetables of a share with a share partner.
If you would like to split a share, we can set you up with a share partner from our existing
waitlist or you can find a friend on your own to be your partner.
If you do decide to divvy up the share each week, please do this away from the display area.

Share Pick-up Procedures
Communication
We communicate primarily through weekly e-mails. Each week you can expect to receive an
e-mail with a harvest list for that week, so you can know what variety to expect, any
announcements from your farmers, as well as a few recipes using the vegetables that we
are harvesting that week. We also send out any emergency notifications over e-mail, but
please let us know if you would like to receive these over the phone or through a text
message. Please feel free to call, e-mail or text 267-424-1439 anytime in order to get in
touch with us.
On Farm
Each week shareholders enjoy a market style and primarily, "free choice"* CSA pick-up. This
means you take what you need, the variety you prefer and the quantity you will use each
week. We trust you to make the selections yourself according to your family’s eating habits
and taste preferences. This is also a great chance to try new and exciting vegetables.
Quantities and variety fluctuate throughout the year. Please bring your own bags each
week to fill with fresh veggies. When you arrive at the pick-up location, there will be a sign-in
sheet where you will check off a box by your name. A display will indicate what vegetables
are available that week, and you will be responsible for filling your own bag. Occasionally
there will be designated amounts of certain vegetables that are in short supply.
*“Free Choice”
This is something that we will be trying in the 2014-15 season in order to let you have more
flexibility in selecting the amount and variety of produce each week.
The quantity of vegetables you choose to take is meant to meet the weekly needs of your
family for fresh consumption.

If you are interested in preserving or ordering extra items for special occasions, just let us
know and we can arrange a bulk order.
Vacation
If you will be out of town, feel free to send friends or family in your place to pick up your
share. You do not have to tell us if you are sending someone in your place, but please make
sure they know the pick-up procedure.
Missed Pick-up
Please let us know if no one will be able to pick up your share. Try not to miss your pick-up
day (we will address emergencies on a case by case basis). You may choose to pick up at
the farm on the alternate pick-up day once a season, but you must tell us beforehand.
Shareholder Involvement
On the Farm
We do not currently require our shareholders to work on the farm. However, we do value how
time spent on the farm encourages a more intimate experience with the land. Shareholders
are welcome to visit us or volunteer any time to enjoy the beautiful rolling hills, vegetable
fields, grazing animals and so much more. Just give us a heads up when you are coming.
Comments & Suggestions
We greatly value your feedback on anything and everything. The goal of Community
Supported Agriculture is to give people the opportunity to know their growers, where their
food comes from, and to have a more intimate relationship with the land. Please feel free to
make suggestions at any time.
