14 Acre Farm really is a farm! Our CSA (stands for Community Sustained Agriculture) program is an excellent way to experience fresh, seasonal eating. Every Wednesday, members come directly to the farm in Summit Hill, PA to pick up a weekly share of whatever we have fresh. (sorry, we have no additional drop-off points.) The variety of produce shifts from week-to-week, season-to-season, but a typical week includes:
One bag of salad/raw greens
One bag of cooking greens
2 loaves of fresh bread (there are a variety of staples to choose from)
The share feeds approximately a family of four, but it really depends on the family. Some couples find it is perfect for two, while some families of 4 or more say it is almost too much.
The Full Share gives you full-on vegetable access from Spring right through Fall. You’ll start the year in greens overload, get all the bounties of Summer, and end the year with squash, potatoes, garlic, and other hardy fall crops as the air gets crisp and the leaves are at their peak.
The Summer Share is perfect for busy families. It begins just as the school year ends, and ends just as the school year is beginning and Fall starts to get hectic. It is also ideal for those who prefer the traditional produce of summer: tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, green beans, etc.
Sara and Denege will be your happy assistants. They will help guide you through the choices, and are glad to offer cooking suggestions or ideas.
