MARKET GARDEN @ SUNNIVUE
Sunnivue Farm is offering CSA shares for the 2018 season, beginning in May and extending until late November. Everything is ready to get going for you.
As you probably know, the CSA idea has to do with giving the farmers some income at the beginning of the season when they have the most expenses. So you pay up front, making it possible for the farm to invest in seed, transplants and some machinery improvements.
If you like this idea, here is what we offer:
1 whole share for example might give you, each week at the beginning of the season, a box of:
- 2 lbs or bunches of carrots
- 2 units of beets
- 2 units of spinach
- 2 bunches of green onions
- 2 bunches of radishes
And, with the season progressing, we will add broccoli, romaine, green or other beans, diverse cabbages, kale, bags or bunches of salad greens, head lettuce, okra, leeks, celery, potatoes, squash, melons, zucchini, cucumbers, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants. And whatever else we might come up with.
That looks like 30 weeks of 20 to 30 dollars worth of veggies delivered to your door or picked up from the farm, your choice.
In addition you can order duck, chicken, turkey, beef, grated buffalo cheese and maybe eggs.
We offer 1 share of vegetables at $600, or a half share at $300; delivery will be $5 extra each time.
To grow the vegetables we will use entirely organic methods. Please inquire about the status of the meats you would like; the animals will be raised and processed as organically as possible and with every consideration for their welfare.
We can offer 60 shares, beginning whenever the weather turns better, so please tell your friends and neighbours.
