Share Sizes and Options

At Local Harvest CSA, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. Your family is different than your neighbor’s family, you share with your sister, or your friends love to come cook with you. We offer three different share sizes to get you the right amount of produce for you!

The point of a CSA is not to overload you with vegetables you don’t know and won’t eat, send you home with more food than you can possibly consume, or make you feel like you didn’t get enough.

a variety of share size options

 

*****For returning members, please note that the names of our shares have changed. Basic is the same, while ‘Single’ has become our ‘Standard’ and ‘Family’ is now called ‘Full’***

Check out these seasonal samplers to see what the different share sizes bring through each season:

Sample Spring Shares    Sample Summer Shares    Sample Fall Shares

 

Basic Share

Based on feedback from you over the past few seasons, we’ve created a slightly smaller share that might supplement shopping that you already do, add variety to your own backyard farm, or you might just want to keep your kitchen well-stocked with organic household staples from local farmers. This is a smaller share that focuses on more basic crops (potatoes, carrots, onions, squash, greens, etc) with plenty of substance but fewer add-ons than you would get in the standard share. Many crops that people are familiar with, but might not be considered weekly basics, will still be provided, but less frequently than the standard share. We will not be eliminating crops from the share, but just providing many of the crops less frequently (e.g. – 1 time out of every 3 weeks, instead of 2 times out of every 3 weeks).

Standard Share

Carrots, lettuce, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, onions, and blueberries! Just an example of a standard share during the summer!

The standard share, will generally feed two people (depending on how much you love your veggies). You’ll get the basics throughout all three seasons and plenty of options for the limited-run crops as they become available.

Full Share

This is a great share for three or more people, but would also be a perfect fit for anybody who likes to can or freeze their own fresh produce. You’ll get all the basics and a great selection of additional through all three seasons.

 

You can scale up or scale down between share sizes at any point if you’d like more or less produce, it’s easy. We’ll just charge or refund you a prorated amount when you make the switch.

Want to join Local Harvest CSA but don’t know what on earth you’re going to do with all this good food? We make it easy to share a share! Find a friend, family member, co-worker, or trusting stranger who can pay for half a share and fill out your membership form together! You can either split the bounty yourself each week or take turns picking up a share.

leftover produce donated to the Friendly Kitchen

You completely forgot to pick up your share! What happens?? It’s not fun because you missed out on your favorite vegetables (see vacation policy to avoid this), but you can feel good knowing your share was donated to The Friendly Kitchen, the only soup kitchen in Concord that feeds anybody who walks through the door, no questions asked. We’re proud to partner with this organization whose volunteers work hard to serve over 60,000 meals a year.
