You will choose your volunteer shifts. This year the amount has been reduced from 10 to six hours – each share family will do one distribution shift and 1 community shift. You will pick your distribution shift and the type of community shift you want. Once we receive the form, we will contact you within a few days, clarifying any questions, totaling the balance, and choose community shift dates. Once volunteer shifts are penciled into the calendar, we will fill out a receipt, scan and email it to you with your share and volunteer calendar as well as the 2015 Membership agreement.  Seems like it could be slightly complicated but we hope it will be easy and smooth….

If you have questions about share sizes, check out the tag – WEEKLY SHARE AMOUNTS. We record the shares each week and post them to the blog so there is an official record of our past seasons.  Actually, tons of info on the blog and  lots of pictures on the facebook page

Package Spotlight – Oh My Pie!

peaches from orchard share. aug 2010

We organize the shares offered at Southside  CSA into packages. This helps us volunteers keep things organized while meeting our farmer’s sales needs. The earlier you sign up, the more likely you are to get whatever type of package your heart desires. We have crafted a big variety of packages — Full Share Packages & Mixed Full -Half Share Packages & Half Share Packages. We tried to make that list complete BUT if you don’t see the combo that fits your needs, let us know what you would like to purchase. At this point we can pretty much put together any type of combination.

This year we have designed the perfect share for those of you who love to support your local farmers but don’t really spend a lot of time cooking up dinners – the OH MY PIE! share. This baker’s combo of the NY Orchard Share & Egg share is the perfect union for those who like to bust out those peach pies, plum cobblers, and egg custards. Of course, you don’t have to be Martha Stewart to rock the Oh MY PIE share. This is also a great purchase for those who like to start their days with a breakfast of local fruits and eggs. Purchase some of our Circle C Maple Syrup and you have the makings of the most perfect Sunday Brunch! Hello apple-cardomon pancakes smothered in maple syrup. Just imagine all the morning glory you can create with your share of local fruits and eggs…
