CSA Program Ending
For those customers who were a part of our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program last year, or at one time over the past few years, we have decided to end our CSA program. Last summer, we began offering "Summer Veggie Boxes" to our customers on a weekly/biweekly basis and the concept was SO well received that customers were already requesting we continue it this year before the end of last season. Customers really liked the "box" concept because there is no contract or money required up front, which provides flexability to the customer. Customers also loved having a choice in what they received in their boxes, which was not an option in our CSA program. For more information regarding our Summer Veggie Boxes, please continue to read below.
Summer Veggie Boxes
If you enjoy eating a variety of fresh summertime produce, but don't want to grow your own extensive garden or travel to a local area Farmer's Market on a weekly basis, then our "Veggie Boxes" might just suit your summer veggie needs! The "Veggie Box" concept was introduced to our customers last summer and was SO well received that we decided that we would continue with it, rather than continuing our traditional CSA membership program. The "Veggie Box" concept is very similar to our old CSA model with the main difference being that there is no contract or payment required up front. Customers really liked to have a choice in what they received in their boxes. Each week we usually offer 2 different boxes with a different combination at the same great price point as the traditional CSA offered. Every week we will list on facebook and our website what boxes we have for sale and what is included in each. You simply tell us which box or boxes you would like and when you would like to pick them up. From time to time we will also be offering fruit boxes including things such as Georgia peaches, Washington cherries, and Muscatine melons. Prices of the boxes vary, however, they usually range between $12 - $25 depending on the contents of the box that week.
Throughout the summer months our red harvest barn features a large selection of fresh picked vegetables, flowers and locally grown fruit. One of our veggie specialties "mouth-watering" sweet corn! In addition to our fresh produce, the barn is bursting with beautiful decorative gift items! Enjoy searching for that perfect country sign welcoming guests to your home, design a spring wreath, or take home some yummy dips, salsas, or baked goods. The barn also showcases several local artists, crafters, designers, and photographers.
Jams, Jellies, Dips, Salsas, Pickles, Baked Goods
Our barn is bursting with delicious jams, jellies, salsas, pickles, relishes, dip mixes and more! Where else could you find all of this yummy goodness in one place??
