The leaves are turning and the summer bounty of vegetables are turning to fall bounty. This year we will be doing our similar Fall CSA program to last year. Read on for all of the info!
What: 8 items of produce, 4 items are my choice, 4 items are your choice
Here's what you can expect to see at some point in shares (these are all, weather dependent, of course):
Stir Fry Greens
Bok Choys and other Asian Greens
Peppers (Hot, Sweet, and Mild Frying Peppers)
Fresh herbs (parsley, dill, cilantro, papalo, shiso, sage, thyme, etc.)
Dry Herbs - weather dependent
When: October 3 - November 14 (7 pickups); 9 AM-12 PM every Saturday morning
Where: In the barn at the farm, 3404 Springfield Road
For past members of our Fall CSA, please read the changes we will be making below in order to account for the virus:
1. Because we won't be doing an open house on the farm, we will be starting the CSA the FIRST WEEK of October instead of the second and continuing it until November 14. So this is a 7-week CSA now instead of a 6-week CSA.
2. We will be more adamant about spreading out the window for pickup, leaving three hours instead so that everyone can remain socially distanced. Pickup will start at 9 and go until 12.
3. This year, we will have the four items start off in your bag, so bags will be prepacked, then we will ask you what you'd like for the remaining choices. We will be the only folks touching your produce, not the customers this year.
4. The setup will be in a slightly different location in the barn so as to keep people moving in one door and out the side door, instead of coming in one and out the same one. That being said, you'll still enter in the same door as normal.
The CSA will be $145 this season and will include 7 weeks of fresh produce (8 items each week totaling about $24 per share while you only pay $20 per share plus website fees). Purchase the CSA from the store below. At checkout, please leave all your information that is asked for, mainly your e-mail address. That's it, you're signed up!
The CSA Agreement:
By purchasing a CSA share, I understand Down River Farm will do its best to provide an abundance and variety of local food. As a shareholder, I understand weather and other challenges may improve or limit the amount of food I receive. I am willing to eat seasonally and make the best use of the food I receive even if weather or other factors limit the variety or quantity of food produced.
