Our 2016 Jersey Fruit shares were the hit of the summer!
Our members’ reaction to our first ever Jersey Fruit Share was tremendous and we’re ready to do it again and even better in 2017.
Our summer fruit shares begin around July 1st with Jersey blueberries and blackberries. As summer kicks in, so do yellow and white peaches and nectarines along with personal size watermelons, cantaloupes and other delicious melons. Late summer brings pears and plums, they are followed by raspberries, apples, Asian pears and cranberries in the fall.
We even plan to include some Jersey peach cider, Jersey fruit jams, and Jersey apple cider! Your share box is about a third of a bushel but the share isn’t sold by volume. We chose that size to hold the larger items in mid-summer so the box may be bigger than needed in some parts of the season.
The fruit shares end around the same time as our vegetable shares in late October, so they run for about 18 weeks. The fruit is from a combination of our farm and local farms and orchards that utilize environmentally sustainable IPM, integrated pest management that minimizes pesticide use.
To make it easy for you our Jersey Fruit Shares can be picked up at the same locations and at the same times as our vegetable CSA shares. This share is completely separate from our vegetable CSA and Jersey fruit shares at all locations are “pre-boxed.” The cost per share is $295.00 for the season, about $16.00 per week. You can pay in full or utilize our payment plan. All terms and conditions of our vegetable CSA apply to the fruit CSA as well. Please take the time to read this information on our website.
