What’s in a Share – CHOICE!

Why are we the “Choice” CSA?

Here are examples of how you get to choose what and how much you get in your share.  This example is for a LARGE share: (A medium share gets 2 less items and a small share 2 less than that.)  Unless the item is marked “One Pick Only” you may choose to take double or triple the amount and have it count as 2 or 3 picks.  So, if you want a lot of carrots or lettuce that week it is fine with us.  Further, if you want small potatoes for a potato salad or big ones for a mash, baby carrots for a snack or big ones for roasting, it’s up to you.  You get to choose.
