In response to popular demand, we are introducing a limited number of smaller boxes this summer. This is a huge logistical challenge for all of us here at Mountain Bounty Farm, and it will increase our production costs, so we’re giving it a try for one season to see how it goes. We’re really excited to try this new approach and we hope it will make our veggies more accessible to everyone.
Our regular boxes have always contained a generous amount of just-picked organic vegetables from our farm, averaging about 12 items (sometimes less, sometimes more). This regular box usually provides enough produce to fill a large grocery bag, plus extra bounty when we have a bumper crop. The smaller boxes will be 2/3 the size, and will contain an average of 8 items (also sometimes less, sometimes more). This size provides staple produce and therefore less variety, and does not include the extra bounty of bumper crops.
What You Might See in Your Summer Veggie Box:
We put tremendous care and skill into growing superb produce for you. The amount and variety of produce increases over the course of the season. Each week we harvest the crops that are perfectly ready to eat, and we send an email newsletter before you pickup with the box contents, farm news and recipes. This season we are growing over 250 varieties of organic vegetables and herbs plus some absolutely luscious melons:
- Greens: Arugula, Bok Choi, Cabbage, Collards, Kale, Lettuces, Radicchio, Escarole, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Tatsoi and other Asian greens
- Herbs & Aliums: Basil, Cilantro, Dill, Garlic, Leeks, Onions, Parsley, Scallions
- Roots: Beets, Carrots, Potatoes, Radishes, Sweet Potatoes, Turnips
- Summer’s Glory: Cherry, Heirloom, and lots of red slicing Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Cucumbers, Edamame, Eggplant, Cantaloupes and many other types of muskmelons, Green Beans, Sweet Red Peppers, Hot peppers, Summer Squash, Watermelons, Zucchini
- Spring and Fall treats: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Celery, Fennel, Peas, Pie Pumpkins, Winter Squash
We grow lots of “staple” veggies because our member surveys show that it’s important to have a steady supply of these: lettuce, carrots, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, sweet corn, broccoli, squashes, and greens like kale and chard.
