WHAT DO I RECEIVE IF I PURCHASE A VEGETABLE CSA SHARE?
Each week you will receive a bag/basket of seasonal vegetables. The Little Bit Farm Vegetable CSA runs for a full season of 14 weeks, a half season of 7 weeks, and a SPRING half season of 4 weeks. This means full season share members receive 14 baskets in total, half season share members receive 7 total baskets, and SPRING half season members receive 4 total baskets.
WHAT ARE THE TIMELINES/DATES FOR EACH SHARE?
As farmers we are subject to weather and other conditions that are challenging to control, but the estimated start date for the Full Season Share this year is Tuesday, June 6, 2023 and will end on September 12, 2023 with a one week pause the week of July 4, 2023. Half Season Shares are estimated to begin Tuesday, August 1 and end on September 12. SPRING/Half Season Shares run from Tuesday, June 6 – Tuesday, June 27.
WHAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF A BASKET OF VEGETABLES IN A SHARE?
Part of the fun of a CSA is the diversity of produce from start to finish during a given summer season. A basket in June is very different than a basket in August. For example, a basket in June might include arugula, sugar snap peas, beets, radishes, kale, and a couple bags of herbs. A basket in August might include a couple pints of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, green beans, and peppers. Please see our list of vegetables and estimated harvest dates by clicking here.
