Boxes are continuing to feature the summer staples and may include varieties such as sweet corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, zucchini and squash, a variety of peppers, greens, broccoli, and herbs when they're available. Fruit has been peaches and nectarines or even melons some week! As always, items can change from day-to-day, but the assortment will be wide and make sure to provide lots of great ingredients for your week of cooking!
Our produce box is a half-bushel mixed seasonal produce box that includes a variety of items available from our partnered farms based on the time of year. We pack in half bushels and will deliver a full box valued per the grower's set retail price of at least $40.00. Boxes include between 8-12 different products weekly depending on quantities and values of each item included. Some weeks will have more variation, some less.
(The current week possible inclusions are listed above.)
We work with nearly 20 farms depending on the time of year and who is growing what. We do not require organic certification from the farmers, but many are certified or practice using only OMRI pesticides or follow Integrated Pest Management Practices. We know all of the farmers we work with and are proud to offer their items as they are seasonally available.
*EXCLUSIONS and SUBSTITUTIONS are not accepted.* We understand a pre-selected box is not a fit for everyone and support you purchasing directly from your local farmers to get exactly what you enjoy and what fits your family. Buy local!
The inclusions will change weekly, or even on days of the week, as availability presents itself from our farmer friends at collaborating farms.
GENERAL PRODUCT STORAGE & BEST HANDLING NOTES:
We are careful to select producers who use the most natural methods possible, so unlike much food in the grocery stores these products are not treated with the same coatings that preserve their longevity. With this in mind, we ask you to make sure that upon arrival you keep most of these veggies in the refrigerator.
All roots and greens do best when kept mildly moist, so many people wrap them in a damp paper towel enclosed in a bag or container in the refrigerator to extend their life. With all of this in mind, our producers do not utilize chemicals post-harvest to extend the life of their vegetables so take care of them and consume them quickly.
Please keep in mind that all storage crops do best in cool temperatures. Potatoes and squash, although generally fine on "the counter", do best in mid-50s. Because these are New England storage crops, the way they are handled is very important.
