For the Spring of 2018, Little River Farm is offering a weekly bag share.
The share will begin the week of March 26th and end the the week of May 28th (10 weeks). Cost: $280
Weekly Pickup Locations
The insulated CSA bags will be packed on Friday, and placed in a cooler at one of our pickup locations. Please let us know by email which of the following locations and times work best for you:
Fridays at Pat’s Pastured 3-6PM
Saturdays at Pat’s Pastured 9AM-1PM
Saturdays at Little River Farm 8AM-1PM
Due to the poor condition of the access road at Little River Farm, a cooler will be placed near the end of the road. Please park on the side of William Reynolds road. If you are unable to make it to a pickup location that week, please let us know ahead of time and we will hold your bag in our walk-in-cooler.
What’s In the Bag?
In the springtime, you can expect an abundance of fresh greens. Each week, there will be a variety of the following items: salad greens, spinach, arugula, kale, bok choi, head lettuce, broccoli raab, cilantro, pea tendrils, sunflower shoots, microgreens, radish, turnips, beets, and carrots. Asparagus may also be included.
What else do I receive for being a spring CSA member?
In addition to your weekly vegetable bag, you will receive herb and tomato plants for your garden. We will also be including a gardening class at Little River Farm for all members. If you purchase your spring CSA share by Feb 1st, you will also receive a discount of at least $50 on a summer CSA share.
How does the spring CSA benefit the farmers?
The wintertime is when we have to purchase seeds, fertilizer, and supplies for next season. Unfortunately, the wintertime is also when our cash flow is at its lowest. Your investment in our farm now allows us to purchase everything that we need for next season, while also allowing us to pay a full-time, year round employee a living wage!
