As a “member” of Hay Creek CSA, you will invest $400 (prepay option) for the 16-week season, and receive produce to feed a family of 4 for a week. The 1+ bushel boxes will average 12 pounds net over the season with an additional smaller box of tomatoes in their 4+ week season. Melons and winter squash come outside-the-box too for the last couple drops.
I endeavor to provide at least 6 weeks of popular warm-season crops including tomatoes, sweet corn,cucumber, zucchini, green beans, peppers and eggplant. A mix of greens selected from plantings of lettuces, kale, arugula, chicory, endive, chard, mizuna and beets will be provided over the entire season. Root crops include carrots, beets, leeks and bunching onions. Almost forgot broccoli and cauliflower. Oh, brussels sprouts later too..
Special packaging is used to preserve the fresh-picked quality of your produce in transit to your home. Insulated liners with ice-packs keep sweet corn succulent and fragile greens and herbs crisp. Pulp insert trays protect vine-ripe tomatoes from damage.
