Produce We Grow
What to Expect in Your CSA Bag
We are committed to growing the freshest, healthiest food we can by using only sustainable and biodynamic practices. One of the most exciting aspects of belonging to a CSA is peeking into your bag each week to see what nature’s bounty has provided.
Expect to find lots of fragrant fresh green leaves, like the lettuces, mixed salad greens, spinach, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, and green cabbage. Also look for broccoli, scallions, radishes, and baby beets. These are the wonderfully invigorating, nutrient dense tastes our ancestors longed for after a winter without fresh vegetables.
You can look forward to all of the big juicy fruiting vegetables we look forward to all year; tomatoes, summer squash, cucumbers, green beans, peppers, and eggplant plus basil, parsley, and carrots. All of our favorite picnic fixings are in this group; think green bean salad, sliced cucumbers, and caprese salad made with thick slices of sweet tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, and big green leaves of fresh fragrant basil.
Fall and Early Winter:
Look for the tubers and roots and cool weather vegetables that make members dream of hearty pots of stew or pans of slow-roasted, caramelized root vegetables; potatoes, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes, winter squash, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, salad greens, and leeks. These are our ‘comfort vegetables’ and help get us through the long winter months until spring brings us back to fresh green things again.
