We’re proud to announce that we’re offering a flower bouquet CSA this year! Enjoy 10 weeks of beauty and color in the height of summer. Expect sunflowers, zinnia, lilies and dahlias as the focal flowers, with a brilliant array of smaller blooms, greenery and grasses to fill out your bouquet. You’ll recognize some garden stand-bys, and you’ll be introduced to new favorites in every shade and scent.
*the flower CSA will only be offered to Berwick and Kittery pickup locations
How does pickup work?
Your vegetables will be pre-packaged each week in a plastic bin. You will need to bring your own bags to transfer your vegetables into and leave the bin at pickup. An exchange bin will be available at most pickup locations* with a variety of vegetables so that you may trade an item in your bin that you may not be comfortable with for an item that you favor. This method allows you to customize your share each week.
Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate pickups outside of the hours stated above. If you are unable to pick up your share for any given week, we encourage you to find someone else to pick it up for you. If you know that no one is coming, please contact the farm at least 24 hours ahead of time so your share doesn't go to waste.
*due to space restrictions, the exchange bin will not be available at the Tuesday pickup at Maine Meat in Kittery and IAPP in Portsmouth
A steady supply of fresh veggies each week demands a steady supply of inspiration and support to make the best use of the bounty! In each week's email newsletter, the farm will provide several relevant recipes that correspond to the ingredients you'll likely be receiving that week. We'll also be providing storage tips along the way to maximize the useful life of your vegetables.
CSA members will have access to the farm's Pinterest page that organizes an abundance of recipes by vegetable for easy access to relevant preparation ideas.
Private Facebook Group
And then there's the numerous other interpretations of what to do with the same base ingredients each week provided by you and other CSA members through the farm’s private Facebook group. Links to recipes shared through Facebook will also be categorized and added to Pinterest page.
Community Farm Events
As a member of the CSA, you'll be sharing the experience of receiving the same ingredients as all the other members on the Seacoast each week! An ongoing mission of the farm is to increase the connection between CSA members and take advantage of the common ground that shared food provides. We'll be hosting several events throughout the year that welcome members to the farm to connect with each other and the land where your food is grown.
We're always looking for new ways to create connection between members so let us know if you have an idea to share!
