Available Produce and Season
Here are a few important things to keep in mind about which share type is best for you.
Share Info: Members can choose either a small, medium, or large weekly share. Bi-weekly shares are also available. A large share is based on the average needs of a family of 6 or more. A medium share for the needs of a family of 4 to 5, and a small on the needs of a family of 3 to 4. If your having trouble deciding which share size to purchase, always go with the smaller of your two choices. During the season if you find that more produce is needed you can order additional items.
Included Crops: Both vegetable and fruit items may be used to customize your weekly orders through the web store. Most of the fruits that are made available to you during our summer season are produced by our local partners Rhoads Farm and Schacht Family Farm.
Weekly Delivery Variety: The variety of vegetables and fruits available each week will vary throughout the growing season, as crops mature at different times and for various lengths. At no point will each vegetable and fruit crop listed in the chart to the left be available at the same time due to different maturity windows.
Harvest Start and End:
Summer 2017: Deliveries began in late spring 5/30/2017 and will end 9/15/2017 (16 weeks).
Customization: Each week you will receive an email from the farm stating what your share will include for that week. You will have the option to completely reconfigure your delivery for that week, or even cancel that week’s delivery. This is done through your online farm account.
Summer Share info: This subscription is for the 2017 summer season. The subscription includes 16 individual weeks of delivery. For any week that you schedule a vacation, your account will not be debited for a value of produce. You will be responsible for adding additional items to other weekly deliveries during the 2017 summer season so as to use the surplus credit in the account. Any credit that remains in your account at the end of the 2017 summer season will be forfeited. The credit will not be transferred to any other delivery season and will not be refunded.
At New Century CSA, we pride ourselves on providing timely, efficient delivery service to our members. Your delivery day will be based upon your zip code. If your zip code is not listed, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Due to the rising cost of fuel, each delivery will be charged up to a $4.25 fuel surcharge. Remember - you have the option to avoid this surcharge by picking up your produce each week at the farm on Thursdays from 2:00-7:00 pm during the season!
