Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CSA?
A CSA farm share provides the shareholder with 20 weeks of fresh, locally grown produce. The share has a wide variety of items, including many seasonal favorites and we guarantee you will try a few new things as a member. The weekly share varies in variety and abundance based on the season. For example, shares are typically lighter early in the season but become more bountiful as the season progresses.
What is included in the CSA box?
The growing season provides ample possibilities in terms of produce and products you may find in the variety CSA boxes that we offer. Assorted herbs and vegetables like asparagus, onions, lettuce, carrots, kale, radish, potatoes, cauliflower, scallions, peppers, broccoli, leeks, mushrooms, summer squash, cucumbers, and beets as well as fruit like strawberries, blackberries, melons, hardy kiwi, pawpaw, and much more. In the Culinary Reserve CSA box you will also receive items we make like maple syrup, fresh and dried pasta, corn grits, vinegars, preserved vegetables and more.
Will I get the same items every week?
We at Great Meadow Farm try to create diversity in every weekly box and provide an abundance of herbs, vegetables, fruits and mushrooms, when they are in season. It is never certain when things will be harvested or if weather permits the successful growth of a crop, but we strive to make each box unique for the entire growing season from week to week and month to month.
When is the CSA farm share growing season?
Our CSA season begins in late-May and ends mid-November.
What are your growing practices?
We use organic practices with the goal of sustainability of our soil which allows us to grow healthy produce that is never sprayed or chemicals used.
May I swap items in the box with items being sold at the farm market?
Although the transaction seems simple enough, we do not allow swapping of box items with items for sale at our retail location.
When and where can I pick up my weekly share?
2022 CSA Pickups will be available Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at our Farm Market.
What happens if I am unable to pick up my share?
If for whatever reason you are unable to pick up your share, you may have a family member or friend pick up the share for you.
Are there any reminders sent out about picking up our shares?
Reminders are sent 1-2 days before your share pick-up date. These reminders also include a description of what you’ll find in your box for that week, along with some enticing recipes that showcase the items in your box.
