CSA Fruit Share Description and Options
Description of shares:
A weekly “market basket” of fruits grown on our orchard in Warren County and in season for that week. The basket includes a variety of stone fruits depending on the harvest from the orchard that week. For example, in June, the weekly share may include sweet cherries, sour cherries, and early apricots or blueberries. In early July, we harvest apricots, plums, blueberries and early peaches – these are mixed into the weekly share. August marks the high point of our delicious tree ripened yellow and white peaches, nectarines and the first pears – not to mention early apples. In September, October, and November we harvest over 70 varieties of apples and many pears. In these months, the share includes 4 types of apples and a pear variety every week. The fruit is always ideal for eating in hand or using in your favorite baked goods. The composition of the basket changes from week to week depending on what is in season.
The small share is ideal for one to two people each week or smaller families. The large share provides a nice fruit selection for a family of four or more. Variety of fruit in the basket of fruits is provided in both shares, the shares are packed each week to match the share size.
Finally, an email note is provided each week to announce the fruit coming in the weekly share.
