Here’s a great opportunity to try CSA without the full-season commitment!
We still have a few slots available for our season extension, which we usually only offer to existing shareholders. Mother Nature doesn’t keep books, so she doesn’t need to decide ahead of time when the growing season will end. We do have books to keep, and so every year we set the last week of September as the closing date for our CSA season. Most years, there is still a good bit of produce left to go around well after the last pickup date, and other years, the end of September is a nice, natural close to the season. On years when the fields are still producing and it would be a shame to stop enjoying all of the goodness, we offer a season extension to our existing shareholders to prolong the harvest.
This year, the season is still going really strong. At the moment, the fields are producing so well that we have to branch out and find more people to eat it all. And here’s where you come in. This year, we’re offering the season extension to anybody who is interested, whether you’ve participated in the CSA this year or not!
The season extension period is six weeks (first week of October through mid-November). You pay for the entire period up front, and for the next six weeks you come to the Venture Out pickup site and get delicious fall food. That includes greens, lettuce, beans, a few late season tomatoes, butternut squash, acorn squash, pumpkins, sweet potoates, beets, and more. And since it’s only for six weeks, you pay less money and make a smaller commitment than you would be if you were signing up for a whole season. This is an excellent opportunity to try out CSA and see if it’s right for you!
Half shares are $105.
Full shares are $165.
If you’re interested, use the sign-up form on the website, but ignore the dollar amounts listed on that page. We are NOT able to take deposits or offer any extended payment plans or discounts since the period is so short. Paying in full as soon as you sign up is the only payment option we are able to offer at this point in the season.
