What you get with a Summer Wind Farms Farm Share or "CSA".
Here is what comes with your Summer Wind Farms CSA membership package.
18 weeks of our fresh, local, USDA Certified Organic and great-tasting vegetables (June-October).
The "USDA Certified Organic" label -- You have total food security with our farm. You can't "fudge the rules" when you're audited by a third-party certifier. Real Food grown by our family farm. Check out our web page labeled “How We Grow’ to find out about our production practices.
You're supporting a local business -- You can know that 100% of your dollars are going right to support our family farm, our local farm suppliers and employees. We use your membership fees to support our farm expenses in the winter and early spring months, so we can grow awesome food for you all season!
Regular communications from the farm, we email you each week letting you know exactly what’s in the CSA share that week. We also keep you up to date on what’s happening on the farm and in the greater South Jersey Agricultural community as well.
Access to the private “Eat Local South Jersey” Facebook group -- A community of local foodies all dedicated to eating local, healthy and delicious. Many of them are our CSA members and are eating the same food each week, and supporting each other in the process. There’s lots of great information on this page including our family recipes, and we’ve been eating “Farm to Table” for FOUR generations!
A wide variety of veggies each week-- You'll get a healthy mix of staples as well as unusual veggies in each box. We do that on purpose because we know that you would never choose Bok Choy, Okra or Mizuna on your own. But we've seen countless people who have expanded their tastes because we "forced them" to try someone new.
Training for how to best use our food including weekly recipes and meal plans, prepared by our CSA chef and cookbook author Pat Mulvey. Pat’s web site www.localthyme.com is a treasure trove of useful cooking and kitchen tips. You get four recipes each week based on exactly what’s in your box, PLUS over 4000 of her exclusive farm to table recipes. Her site is paid subscription only, and yes, its that’s good. However, we pay for a full year of access for you when you join our Summer Organic Vegetable CSA. No other CSA does this. We believe this is a necessary piece of the puzzle in helping people learn how to eat our food and enjoy their CSA.
