The selection and amount of produce in a weekly share varies by season, by the farmer’s crop plan, the different types of vegetables growing throughout the season, and by daily availability. Shares are typically larger in August than in June. One aspect of CSA is sharing the risk of farming; there is no guarantee of how large or varied the shares will be each week. Enjoy the diversity, the assortment and the varieties each delivery.
