2013 Vegetable CSA program

It’s hard to believe that we are into the second month of 2013 already!!  The Greenhouse that starts all of our seedlings for us will allready have some seeds planted!!  I have been looking longingly at our greenhouses surrounded by snow just dreaming of the warmer weather so that we can get back at it!!  It won’t be long so with planning under way for the upcoming growing season it is time to do some planning for the CSA program as well!!  We sent out a email very similar to this last month to our existing CSA members offering them first chance to sign up again, and now we are opening it up for everyone!!  We are accepting new members for our CSA program again this year.  The program is going to remain much the same as last year, we are going to hold the line on pricing this years so the program will run 17 weeks again and the prices will remain the same.  We are going to offer our early bird incentives again but this time it will come in a gift card to one of the local restaurants that support us by purchasing The Green Ranch veggies and other locally grown food products. You will receive a gift card with 5% of the value of your Vegetable CSA membership for purchases in the month of February.  We will be announcing the date of our Farm tour for CSA members soon. Stay tuned for that!  So far our plans are for the pickup day to remain the same as last year.  Science center parking lot on Tuesday Evenings from 6:30-7:30 or Saturday at the farmers market from 9:30-1:30.  Make sure when you place your order you specify which type of share you would like to purchase…We choose (farmer chooses variety for the week) or You choose (member chooses variety for the week)  We are going to be offering the Egg share add on again this year.  I will have that set up as an option for purchase online.  This is only for the same weeks that the Vegetable CSA runs and only available for Vegetable CSA members!  You can choose between a full share (1 doz / week) or half share (1 doz every 2 weeks)  The CSA discount will be in effect this year again, it is a 10% discount on any food product that we sell excluding other CSA memberships (egg share add on and meat csa’s) and bulk purchases (they already have equivalent to a 10% discount or more).  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at all about the CSA program!
