Fall Fruit HALF Share 2018 in-season - membership required - begins week of October 23 for 2 pickups
The Fall HALF Share provides 4 pickups scheduled every other week. Brookwood will assign members selecting this option to either even or odd week pickups. Share sizes are the same as our full share with half of the pickups.
The Fall Fruit share is all about apples! You will get a great deal with both quantity and variety of delicious local apples, pears, and cranberries. You will generally get about 4 pounds of apples and pears a week. If the weather cooperates we may even get some other tree fruit in September. The share runs for 8 weeks from the week of September 25 until the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
The fruit will be sourced from local farms and we will share information with you about the farmers who grow the fruit and their growing practices. The growers we source fruit from are usually not organic, but they do IPM (Integrated Pest Management), which means that they spray pesticides at a lower rate than conventional growers and only when they need to. The value of the share will vary from week to week but it will even out over time and we aim to give you 10% more value than you pay for.
Please be sure to choose your pick-up day and don't forget the required membership as well.
Thank you for purchasing CSA share(s). Brookwood uses the income from CSA shares to purchase seeds and pay the farm staff. If it is possible for you to pay for your share in full it helps us get the 2018 growing season off to a strong start.
