Farm Share or Working Farm Share - $375 / $340
Rows of Winter Squash.
Harvested fresh for a 10-week season, beginning in August, this traditional CSA farm share includes an array of seasonal organically grown vegetables, from fresh salad greens in the spring, tomatoes in the summer, winter squash in the fall, and so much in between. Diversity is our mantra! The Farm Share strives to include over 25 types of vegetables and over 50 varieties to include delicious staple vegetables (such as white-fleshed potatoes, red slicing tomatoes, mild green peppers, and sweet orange carrots), and unique heirloom varieties that our members love, adding rich, delicious color and flavor to our vegetable options. Chelsea Morning Thymes, our weekly newsletter, and the Chelsea Morning Thymes Recipe Book provides food and farming education, farm photos, personal wit, wisdom and story through weekly musings, and recipes to help you prepare the food delivered each Monday of the week.
MARKET-STYLE FARM SHARE - JULY, PAY FOR WHAT YOU ORDER!
During the month of July, before the traditional CSA season begins, farm share members receive a weekly email with a link to an easy-to-use online form that lists, with photos and helpful descriptions, what produce is available that week. Members order what they want, in the quantity they want it in, only paying for what they order. Deliveries are made using the same CSA sites on the same day of the week as the traditional farm shares.
The Market-Style Share recognizes that our farm "lives" in a cold pocket of the north shore with heavy, wet clay soil, taking awhile each spring and the early part of summer to warm up! At Chelsea Morning Farm, July production is generally heavy with delicious spring "greens" of lettuces, kale, Swiss chard, collards, and Chinese cabbages, along with strawberries and occasional other crops (depending on the seasonal variability of weather). The unique market-style share structure puts some control back into the hands of our members, who can order and enjoy as much or as little of their greens as they wish. July is a special month for the farm as these "spring" crops welcome summer back to the region!
