Our 2013 Spring/Summer CSA is SOLD OUT!
We will announce when the next season begins in the next few months!
Below are membership options for all of the produce, flowers and products we offer at Poplar Ridge Farm (learn more about membership types here):
Full (22-24 Week) and Half Season (11-12 Week) Membership – Produce/Herbs
Each week’s harvest feeds approximately a family of four (two adults, two children). This does depend on your family’s dining-in schedule, freezing and preserving. Seasonal eating fills your ½ – ¾ bushel box of each week’s harvest. (Including approximately 5-6 items in early spring and fall when the harvest is just beginning and 8-10 items in high season. Each item ranges from ½ pound – 3 pounds per item. Tomatoes range between 3-5 lbs per week in the high season. Herbs are 2/3 of an ounce. Micro greens are usually received in half ounce quantities. In high season you may have both a box and a grocery bag of goodies so be sure you pick up everything. Each box contains the same selection of that week’s harvest.) Season begins in May and runs through October. Recipes and advance notice on the upcoming week’s produce, in order to menu plan or add surplus is sent in our newsletter.
The end of the summer CSA season is determined by the weekly harvest that we are able to provide. We are pleased to say that our CSA members always receive $35 – $40 of additional produce, exceeding the membership fee. The Spring/Summer season begins in May and typically spans 22-24 weeks. The Fall membership starts in October and spans 10 weeks.
