Choose an amount of vegetables that you will be comfortable preparing and eating over the entire season (24 or 32 weeks). Items are typically what you would purchase seasonally at the farmers market in order to make a meal. Liz is also interested in trying different varieties and will introduce members to new and interesting vegetables.
The Farmers Market Share
Farmers Market Share is for those members committed to supporting Happy Hollow Farm but who prefer to choose your veggies every week, this option is for you! For $700 you can “shop” from our stall during the 24 week Spring/Summer/Early Fall CSA season on Saturdays at the Columbia Farmers Market. This option provides members with the same direct connection to their farmer, gives a stable source of income to the farm at the time it is most needed, and allows members more choice in the vegetables they receive each week. Members will receive a card (HHF CSA bucks) with which they can keep track of their “purchases” each week. Farmer Liz will also keep a running tally of weekly “purchases”. Members may “purchase” as little or as much every week, however, they must spend all of their HHF CSA bucks within the same 24 weeks as the CSA season.
Full Share typically contains 6-8 different vegetables and a total volume of about 0.6-0.75 bushels per week (quantities are less the first few weeks of the season, and more during the peak of the growing season). During the peak of the season this is approximately the volume of a large paper grocery bag.
Single Share is for members that are single or may not eat as many vegetables in a week as the Partial Share option. This membership option will receive 4-6 different items each week (quantities are less the first few weeks of the season, and more during the peak of the growing season).
Additional Share Options
We also offer add-on shares to your produce, including eggs, flowers and pork. Each of these can be picked up along with your regular veggie share.
Extra Work Share Discount This share option is available for those members interested in joining the CSA & playing a more active role in the weekly harvesting of veggies. This share option requires that you work 18 hours (2 – 4 hour Farm Work Shifts & 4 -2.5 hour Distribution Shifts) to deduct $150 off the original share price.
