FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much produce can I expect?

The amount and variety of produce you receive in your share changes with the seasons.  In the spring, you can expect to get leafy greens (lettuce, chard, kale), root vegetables (beets, radishes, turnips), scallions and cabbage.  As summer nears, the shares begin to fill with familiar vegetables (cucumbers, squash, garlic, peppers, eggplant) and progresses with a variety of tomatoes (20+ varieties grown in 2015).  The fall leads to hardy greens, lettuce, cabbage, and root crops (beets, turnips, and radishes).

What if I am unfamiliar with a vegetable or don't like one?

Part of the CSA experience is trying new vegetables. We put together information weekly that explains familiar and not so familiar produce, and include recipes that we like on the farm.  We welcome recipe suggestions from shareholders.   We recommend the cookbook Simply in Season, which gives tasty recipes that correspond with what is in season.  If you are strongly opposed to a vegetable on our harvest list, you can let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

 

What if I go on vacation?

You can have someone else pick up your share while you are gone or you can change your pick up day.  Just let us know by email or phone the previous week.

2017 csA sHARE

As a member of the Whisper Hill CSA, you will receive an assortment of produce for 20 weeks from the end of May through the first week of October.

 

Our farm shares consist of seasonal, freshly picked vegetables, herbs, and, on occasion, cut flowers.  You can expect familiar varieties, as well as more unusual heirloom varieties. 

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial relationship between the farmer and the community of people who receive the produce.  Members purchase a share (usually before the growing season begins) and in return receive a weekly supply of fresh seasonal produce.  Being a member of a CSA, one agrees to share the inherent benefits and risks of the season.
