Spring CSA

Between our Winter CSA and our Main Season CSA we will be offering a 6-week Spring CSA.  Available this year for the first time, we are excited to be offering an assortment of over-wintered, winter and spring planted vegetables for a small group of our CSA customers.  This will give you a little, early taste of summer.  Check out the details here:

Details

What’s available in Spring?  Crisp spring radishes, juicy spring walla walla onions, rich spinach, pea shoots, bok choi, lettuce and kale to compliment overwintered parsnips, carrots, burdock, and beets.  We anticipate the spring shares being heavy in hearty greens with compliments of fresh roots and over wintered roots.  We hope to have our first harvests of asparagus as well.

When? Between the weeks of April 11th – May 30th we will hold 6 pick-ups.  The dates will be posted as we get closer to go-time.

Where?  Pick-Up will be held at Bell Street Chapel (5 Bell Street in Providence).  Spring Shares will be pre-bagged, similar style to our Winter CSA.  Pick-up at the farm is also an option.

What day and time? Pick-up will on Thursdays from 5-7pm.  Shares can also be picked up at the farm (1012 Snake Hill Rd N Scituate RI 02857) at more flexible times.

How Much? $150.  This will provide $25/share.  Only one size share is available for the spring but feel free to order 2 shares if you prefer.  Expect shares to increase in size as we move into May.
