Fall CSA

When does the season start? How long will it last?

The Fall season starts the first week of September and runs to mid-December. The Fall shares last for a total of 16 weeks.

What can I expect in each week's box?

As a member of Crawford Organics CSA you will receive a weekly box with an assortment of in season fresh vegetables. Each box will contain an average of 8 items. The quantities are designed for 2-4 people, depending on menu preferences. The box may not supply all your vegetable needs, depending on your normal vegetable consumption.

Lettuce will be in nearly every box. Leafy greens, potatoes, and brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, etc.) will come more frequently as the Fall progresses. Summer crops (tomatoes, peppers, etc) will likely be in the boxes somewhat regularly till the end of October (depending on when the first frost comes). Fall items (winter squash, sweet potatoes, turnips, etc.) will be in the boxes as they come into season.

The following list gives you an idea of when our crops are harvested. Some of these items you will find in your box frequently and others only once or twice. Because we are working with living plants and the unpredictability of weather, there is no guarantee of the exact type or quantity of produce you will receive each week.

Beets, Boc Choi, Broccoli, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chard, Cilantro, Garlic, Assorted Herbs, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Onions, Parsley, Peppers, Potatoes, Radishes, Scallions, Shallots, Spinach, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes, Winter Squash

*Please see our Fall CSA History page for a list of what we sent in last season's boxes.

What if I go on vacation?

If you plan to be away certain weeks in the fall, and you can let us know when you sign up; we will deduct $23/week. If after you sign up, you realize you will be away some week; there will be no refunds, but you may either have a neighbor pick up your box for you, or you may pick up two boxes one week and skip the previous or subsequent week. To double a week and skip one, you must give us one week advance notice by either e-mail or phone.

We harvest an exact amount of produce for each week’s boxes. Therefore if you fail to pick your box up within the designated time without informing us in advance; we will donate it to a worthy recipient.
