Which size should you order?

Our regular box contains a generous amount of just-picked organic vegetables from our farm, averaging about 12 items (sometimes less, sometimes more). This size usually provides enough produce to fill a large grocery bag, plus extra bounty when we have a bumper crop. We have found it to be a good size for an average family of four, but that will fluctuate based on your family’s eating habits and how much you cook at home versus eat out during the week.

The smaller box is 2/3 the size of the regular box, and contains fewer items (average of 8 different items– 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 we know our members want a steady supply of these: lettuce, carrots, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, sweet corn, broccoli, squashes, and greens like kale and chard.
