Fruit & Vegetable Program (CSA)

Summer 2017
Fruit & Vegetable (CSA) Program
 

We will kick off Beriswill’s Farm Market Summer 2017 Fruit & Vegetable (CSA) Program May 11th.

Purchase CSA Program

 

The program will run 24 weeks, with full boxes at $500 and half boxes $260 for the season, payable on or before May 1, 2017. This year we have a new offering – a ‘Fill your own’ option. This option allows you to choose your own fruits and veggies – enough to fill a peck basket. The cost for this option is $360.

Pickup will be on Thursdays after 3pm, Fridays and Saturdays during market hours. You or a representative may pick up your box.

Dates of the program:

  • May 11-13, 18-20, 25-27
  • June 1-3, 8-10, 15-17, 22-24, June 29 – July 1
  • July 6-8, 13-15, 20-22, 27-29
  • August 3-5, 10-12, 17-19, 24-26 Aug 31 – Sept 2
  • September 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, 28-30
  • October 5-7, 12-14, 19-21

If you need to miss a week, please make arrangements at least 1 week ahead of time and we can work out a refund in market credit. Keep in mind that you may have someone else pick up your produce if you’ll be out of town.

To provide the best service and produce for our members, we are limiting the program to 35 members. We will sign up members on a first-come basis. To sign up for a box, please call or stop in the market, or purchase online.

Program Description – Half and Full boxes

Each week, we will provide a seasonal selection of vegetables and fruits. We will mix in organic produce where feasible.

The boxes that are used for the ½ and full-size program are plastic totes. The usage of the tote is included in the price of the program.

The selection in the box is for that week, with no substitutions available. If you can’t use something in the box you may leave it at the market for another member to enjoy. Note that this program is great for those who are willing to try the produce selected by us. We look forward to seeing you every week and receiving your feedback. If you prefer to choose your own produce, consider the ‘fill your own’ option or feel free to come into our market and select those things your family enjoys without a CSA membership.

Program Description – ‘Fill your own’ baskets

Each week, we will provide a seasonal selection of vegetables and fruits. We will mix in organic produce where feasible. We’ll have at least 7 items for you to choose from to fill your basket, and ask that you include at least 4 different veggies or fruits.

The container for the ‘fill your own’ option will be a peck basket. We ask that all items are at least ½ in the basket. We want your basket to be nicely full, but not spilling out. Some weeks there may be items which are ‘extra’ and won’t fit in your basket. These items might be such things as watermelons or cantaloupes.

Other notes for all types of CSA’s

If you need other items (meat, eggs, milk, etc.), please call the market to add other items to your order to make your shopping more convenient. Or – choose those items when you stop in.

Also, if you have a favorite recipe, please pass it along to us to share with other CSA members. We are always looking for ways to prepare fruits and vegetables for others to enjoy.

Sincerely,
Beriswill Family and Farm Market Staff
