Summer Fruit HALF Share 2018 - membership required - begins week of June 19 for 14 weeks - 7 pickups
The Summer Fruit HALF Share provides 7 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 Summer Fruit Share begins the week of June 19th and runs for 14 weeks. There will be lots of variety in this share. We are hoping to include strawberries, blueberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, and melons. Quantities will typically be a quart (or 2 pints) of berries or 3-4 pounds of tree fruit. 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 we aim to give a minimum of 10% more value than what you paid each week.
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.
