A share of Powisset Farm is:
How much food can I expect?
Here at Powisset Farm our CSA share is designed to feed a family of four, or two adults who cook frequently. We provide anywhere from 8-15 items in the share each week up at the distribution barn, and another 3 – 6 vegetables out in the pick-your-own field. We also offer herbs and flowers as part of your share, beginning in July. Members will often take home one bag of produce at the beginning of the season, and leave with four bags of produce in the height of the season, (August – October).
We try to provide you with a wide variety of produce each week, ranging from popular staples, like lettuce and carrots, to more obscure vegetables like Romanesco broccoli and kohlrabi. We grow over 65 different vegetables, and over 200 varieties of those crops.
Each week there is a detailed list of what is in each share up at the distribution barn. There is also a member of the farm staff on hand to facilitate the pick-up process and talk with our members about their share.
Here at Powisset Farm we have CSA members participate in a pick-your-own component. Although most crops have been picked for you, many are only available in our pick-your-own fields. Cherry tomatoes, peas, beans, strawberries, flowers and herbs are all a part of our Pick-your-own crops. We encourage our members to get out into the fields and experience a bit of the harvest for themselves. We provide signs and instructions for what to pick, how to pick, and how much to take each week.
