Each delivery will contain a bag of leafy greens (lettuce mix, spinach, baby kale, etc.) or tender microgreens, root crops, and an assortment of other vegetables which changes throughout the season.
We setup pickup sites throughout Richmond. You will be notified of your site when registration closes. It will be no more than a 5 minute walk from your home.
Absolutely. You can pause and defer your deliveries at any time.
The weekly contents of the box are not customizable. However, in the sign-up form you may list vegetables you would like excluded from your box and we will replace those with other items.
The program costs $575. $275 is due at sign-up, the remaining $300 is due on or before June 1st.
Select the REGISTER FOR A VEGGIE BOX button and fill out the form. You will receive a response from us within 48 hours.
Is knowing your farmer important to you?
In addition to supporting a local farmer, this program gives you the opportunity to get to know the hand that feeds you. You can ask questions about how your food is grown and how the land is treated. If you prefer your food faceless this program may not be right for you.
Can you taste the difference between fresh quality vegetables and the "other" ones?
Seriously. If you can't taste the difference between a fresh versus storage carrot, or soil born vine ripened tomato versus that tasteless hydroponic one that drove 2000KM to get to you, you will not perceive the value of this program.
Do you need complete control over your meal planning?
We strive to offer convenience with this program by delivering clean produce and our weekly newsletter which provides advance notice of what's coming. However we recognize there is still flexibility required by the members to make use of all the vegetables each week. Some will enjoy this challenge, others may find it adds to their stress level.
Are you willing to take a risk?
We are looking for partners to support us through thick and thin. There may be weeks when Mother Nature is less than kind and it is reflected in the shares. On the contrary there may be bumper crops that will have you swimming in tomatoes. Supporting the farm is just as much about having the back of the farmer as it is about getting the full financial value of the share.
