WHAT is CSA??
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. If you want to eat fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables and fruits, and can’t easily get to farmers’ markets on a regular basis, consider our CSA program. CSA benefits both growers and customers; the customer gets the freshest produce and the grower has a guaranteed market for some produce. When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer.
CSA Shares are available at Pilgrims’ Produce!!
The farmers at Pilgrims’ have been running a successful CSA program for 22 years! For the 2018 season we are excited to have Dan & Kat Saxton heading up the program, as well as the expert guidance from seasoned farmers, Robert and Kathryn Hettler.
Pilgrims’ 2018 CSA will run for 22 weeks, every Tuesday, starting mid-May through to mid October. Basic and Family sized shares are available. Boxes can be picked up Tuesdays at the farm (near Armstrong) or at a central location in Vernon.
WHAT’S IN THE WEEKLY BOX?
As the season progresses, you’ll enjoy our fresh spring greens, baby carrots, salad turnips, shelling peas, strawberries, beans, broccoli, cherries, potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, raspberries, sweet peppers, corn, plums, squash, cabbage, leeks, and more. Due to the weather and crop rotations, every year is unique.
The harvest is done Tuesday mornings. Our e-mail newsletter goes out Sunday or Monday to tell you the contents of your box, plus recipes, farm news and photos.
Farm Pick-up is on Tuesday afternoons in the cooler between 12 noon and dusk.
For Vernon members we charge $1.50 extra per week to cover fuel and time. One of the Pilgrims' team will have your boxes Tuesday afternoons at the Vernon Alliance Church parking lot (behind Dulux Paints off of 27th St, corner of 43rd Ave.) Time: between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
