Still Accepting Signups for the Spring/Summer season.

Spring/Summer CSA

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

The season begins the second week of May and continues till the end of August. We also offer a 4 week early start option for the month of April. The standard share lasts a total of 16 weeks, while the Early Start share runs for 20 weeks from April through August.

What can I expect in each week's box?

As a member of Crawford Organics Spring/Summer CSA your weekly box will contain 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 frequently in the Spring and less often in the Summer. Summer favorites like sweet corn, tomatoes, watermelon, and cucumbers will come several times while they are in 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.

What if I go on vacation?

If you plan to be away certain weeks in the summer, 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.
