It’s that time again…CSA enrollment for 2017 is now open! This year we will be continuing our collaboration with Harvest Moon Organic Farm and Green Duchess Farm, both in Hillsborough. This is pertinent information because we are moving our farm to Hillsborough too, and will be working closely with both farms to provide high-quality, diverse CSA offerings to several neighborhoods in the Central and Coastal NJ region. Markets this season include, but are not limited to: Sea Bright (Thursday 2-7), Duke Farms (Thursday 11-5), Asbury Fresh (Sundays 10-3). More markets may be added in the coming weeks.
The way Market CSA works is that you enroll before the market season begins by purchasing a credit to use at any market we attend. As a benefit, you receive and additional 5-10% to your credit to spend as you wish. This differs to a traditional crated CSA share in that it gives the member more flexibility. If you don’t like Kohlrabi, you can skip it and double up on carrots. If you are going on vacation for a week, there is no need to scramble to find someone to pick up your share for you! Got guests coming? You can double up on items as you see fit! Your credit is yours to spend as you like. Through these shares you have the opportunity to support THREE young farm businesses:
-Harvest Moon Organic Farm will be providing certified organic vegetables. A list of crops can be found on the form link below.
-My farm (Farmer Meg’s) will be providing free-range eggs, fresh cut flowers (check out the varieties I’m growing HERE), specialty food items like squash blossoms, salad greens and heirloom pumpkins, goat’s milk soap and value-added goods. Flower bucket shares are also available for the budding floral designer! You can order online and even purchase gift cards for Valentine’s Day!
-Green Duchess Farm will be providing pasture-raised pork and chicken. Think bacon and chops. Sausages, roast, whole chickens, ham and specialty cuts.
