WHAT’S IN A SHARE?
The chart below outlines some seasonal vegetables one could expect to find in her share. When crops are especially abundant, CSA members share in the bounty. We strive to have one Allium in every share (garlic, onion, leeks, shallot, scallion), one annual herb (cilantro, dill, parsley, or basil), one root vegetable, one bunched green (kale or chard), and lettuce. The share is rounded out with additional vegetables from the list below. Weather, pests, and other worldly forces inevitably influence production. In addition to a share of vegetables, members receive a weekly email update with crop- related information, seasonal recipe ideas, and other farm related news.
|Month Harvested||Expected Crop|
|June to July||Beets, Broccoli, Carrots, lettuce, cilantro, spinach, radish, green onions & garlic, kale, chard, snap & snow peas, kohlrabi, radish, turnips|
|August to September||Green beans, summer squash, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, basil, melons, fennel, cabbage, lettuce, bunched greens, onions, garlic, broccoli, cilantro, cucumbers, potatoes, dill, parsley, leeks|
|October to November||Peppers, winter squash, carrots, beets, potatoes, bunched greens, cabbage, cilantro, dill, parsley, fennel, broccoli, endive, chicories, lettuce, spinach, radish, turnips, garlic, onions, shallots, leeks|
Diggin’ Roots Farm offers 22-week main season CSA shares, from mid-June through Thanksgiving. Shares are packed weekly. The exact start date for the season will depend on the weather & other factors: members will be informed by email of the start date 7-10 days before the first pick up.
We offer three types of shares:
- Full Share
Full shares typically contain 8-12 varieties equivalent to 1-2 grocery bags of produce. For reference, our goal with a full share is to provide a four-person family enough produce for a week, though this rate of use will ultimately depend on the culinary culture of each household. These are valued at $30-$33/week.
- Partial Share
A little more than half of the produce included in a full share (6-9 items)! This share could feed one or two adults, or a family that consistently dines out. These are valued at $22-$23/week.
- Market Share
You choose what you want from our booth at the Silverton Farmer’s Market and we’ll subtract it from your total credit. The full market share costs $400 and gives you $420 (5% discount) to spend at our Silverton Farmer’s Market booth from late May to early October. Your balance cannot roll over to another year or be used for purchases outside of our market stand.
