We are coming close to the end of our full season CSA here at 47 Daisies...and are planning to do something different in the fall. This fall, we'll be offering a no commitment, week by week CSA. If you are not a member of our current CSA, you can go to the "CSA Members" page and view some past newsletters to get an idea of what will be in the boxes each week. Of course, it is seasonal, and this fall will be more cool weather crops. Some examples are; greens, broccoli, kohlrabi, turnips, collards, mustards, carrots, etc. The average market value of our current CSA is around $40 a week, so this is a great savings to you!!!!
Here's how the Week by Week CSA will work:
-We will send an email out every Monday between 8 and 10 pm with the tentative list of what may be in the box that week. This email will be sent at approximately the same time every week so you'll know when to expect it.
-The first to respond to the email gets the box for that week, up to the number available.
-You will recieve an response email either way, letting you know if you secured a box that week, or not.
-You will receive a newsletter on Friday of the same week with more detail about the vegetables and preparation ideas, etc.
-Pick up is between 1 and 4 pm on Saturdays at the farm (3363 Hwy 544, Ruston).
-You will need to bring payment of $20 plus something to carry your vegetables home in.
-If you secure a spot and do not pick up on Saturday, you will be removed from the email list after 2 times. This may seem harsh, but we have produce that is harvested and unsellable when this happens. If you can't make it for some reason on Saturday, please try to let us know by Thursday so we don't have to harvest the vegetables.
-Please keep an eye on your kids, as this is a working farm and there are dangers EVERYWHERE..too many to mention.
-No dogs are allowed on the property due to insurance reasons.
-Please note, we do not carry liability insurance for the farm.
This is a great opportunity for people to try out the CSA with no commitment!! It is literally going to be first come first serve. We think it's going to be fun and we're looking forward to meeting new people!!
