Week #3 Member Diary – Fox Force 5

Asparagus May 2015

ASPARAGUS SEASON! May means we are knee deep into Asparagus season. This week’s distribution was another 2 pounds. We also get an Egg Share and a Large Meat Share. Our household tends to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner most days so we have get full shares of everything.Large Meat 2015

Egg May 2015

Having been spoiled by the super fresh asparagus we get from Greig Farm, we really only eat asparagus during the month of May when it is in season here in NY. Store bought spears shipped from thousands of miles away just doesn’t compare. So for the month of May we tend to eat asparagus for every meal.  Continue reading

Week 1 – May 4th – Berry, Egg, Meat, Chicken

1 Week CSA 2014-05-07 011

Today was our first week, an early Spring distribution. It may have seemed like Summer, the warmest kick-off in recent memory, but it has been a long cold Winter and Spring. Now that the sun has arrived, so have some of the earliest crops, like spring onions, ramps, and asparagus. Asparagus is a perennial that pops up for several years, a fast growing flower when the temperature is right.

Tonight was week 1 of 24 in the Berry, Egg, Chicken, and Meat shares. Our partner in crime for the Berry Share is Greig Farm. Norm runs a no spray, pick your own farm, growing a variety of produce, specializing in berries. Our share follows the harvest of asparagus, peas, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples & pumpkins, receiving the bounty of the varying harvests.Norm has rallied his neighbors to partner with the CSA, resulting in the Egg, Meat and Chicken shares.

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.
