Jonathan + Kristie Member Diary – Week of June 22

# Distribution

IMG_6613 IMG_6622

Kristie and I live with two dogs, Bijoux and Roux. They don’t get much of the share, although Roux was pretty into the sugarsnap pea we gave her. We share a half-share of veggies and of orchard (which hasn’t started yet). This doesn’t seem like much, but it can still be challenging to store and cook all this food.

Pro tip: occasionally you can buy extras like loose cartons of eggs or a spare chicken. This is a great way to sample tasty new CSA eats, and figure out if you’re ready to sign up for a share the next season.

Our schedules are pretty busy and we eat out or order in a *lot* for the sake of convenience, but one of the reasons we do CSA is to slow down and try to cook and eat more together, in the house. I *love* leafy greens, so this weeks share was pretty exciting: spinach, rainbow chard, mizuna, radishes, garlic, garlic scapes, lettuce, snap peas, and broccoli rabe. We also scored some Maple Syrup samples from the [Circle C Maple Farm][] in Pine Bush NY. Thanks guys!

I had distribution duty this week and was handing out the meat share. It wasn’t long before I was wishing we’d ordered some; luckily there was a spare chicken, so we picked that up (along with a loose carton of eggs).

By the time distribution was done it was a little late to cook and eat, so we grabbed a bite at Landhaus (the grill at the back of The Woods). After eating, we shlepped our haul home.

*Pro Tip: we’ve got a ton of tote bags, but we set aside the orange ones (with a few extra plastic bags stowed inside) for CSA. This makes them easy to find and grab.* Continue reading

Laura + Merav Member Diary for Week of June 15th

Laura + Merav

Hey guys! This blog post is coming at you from Laura and Merav. We are friends and roommates and this is our second season doing the CSA. We get a bi-weekly egg and veggie share. We share groceries and cook a lot of meals together so sharing the CSA works out really well for us. We were super excited for veggies to start and this week was definitely all about the greens. This week of cooking has basically been all about shoving greens into anything and everything that we make.

Here’s a rundown of some meals that we’ve made and how we’ve been using our shares.

After picking up our share on Monday, I decided to make a giant salad using a lot of those salad greens since those tend to perish more quickly than some of the sturdier greens we got. Continue reading

Payment & Deposits

The whole purpose of a CSA is to get $$ to farmers in these lean Winter months, therefore the bigger a deposit you put down now, the better it is for our farmers. In order to encourage people to pay in full, we offer reduced admin fee to those who pay in full at sign-up. It makes life easier for the farmers and the volunteer organizers. However, we also offer several types of  extended payment plans so that the CSA is open to all families despite income.

  • $30 – Early Bird – Payment in Full at sign up
  • $35 – Regular – 2 payments; Deposit at sign up + Pay in full by June 30.
  • $40 – 4 Payments – Deposit in May, June, July & Aug. Balance due by Aug 31
  • $45 – 5 payments – Deposit in May, June, July, Aug, & Sept. Balance due by Sept 31

Please note, there will be a $5 late fee for every late payment. There will also be a $30 fee for bouncing checks.
