CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE: 80% of members prefer the small share. It is suitable for couples, small families, etc. with an average of 8 items weekly. An item could be a bunch of carrots, a head of lettuce, 6-8 oz. salad mix, 2 lbs tomatoes, 2 lbs potatoes, a melon, 2 zucchini, etc.

The small share is about 2/3 the size of the regular. We do not offer a half share because certain items, such as a melon or head of cabbage or lettuce, are not easily halved.

 

The regular share is for large size families, or for those who want to put up lots of produce for the winter months, with 10-12 items weekly.

 

Need more help? Check our CSA showcase of small shares, and the Typical Share Chart on the right. You can always start with a Small and upgrade to a Regular if you find you need more veg!
