Dear Veggie Society Members:
The attachment referred to below was missing from the email I received. You'll need to visit Sugar Creek Farm's website or email them (links are provided below) in order to find the necessary order form.
Sugar Creek Farm, located in Davie County, is pleased to offer its neighbors the option of a weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)! Because all of the farmers’ markets we attend are in Winston-Salem, we have often worried that we weren’t serving our more local customers in Clemmons and Advance as well as we could. No more! If you live in zip code 27006 north of Ellis Middle School or in zip code 27102 north of Centenary Church Road, we would love to deliver to your door each week a box full of local, seasonal, certified organic produce.
How Does It Work?
Purchasing a share in a CSA allows you easy access to delicious, healthy food but also gives you the ability to support and develop a relationship with the farmer that grew it! Members who purchase a CSA share will receive a box of produce delivered to their door each week from early May thru mid-September. We will harvest (usually that very day to ensure peak freshness/nutrition) and package your produce for you, and then we’ll deliver it to your door at no extra charge. You’ll also receive a newsletter with recipes and news from the farm, and each fall we host a farm visit day exclusively for our members with food, music and a behind-the-scenes tour. The cost is $600 for 20 weeks, which works out to a $30 value each week from early May thru mid-September. Here are some examples of what you might expect to receive in your share, although due to the inherent risks of farming we can’t guarantee any particular vegetable:
Early May Mid-June
Buttercrunch lettuce (2 heads) Kohlrabi
Green onions Onions
Radishes Lettuce mix
Swiss Chard Napa cabbage
Garlic scapes Squash
Boc choi Cucumber
Zucchini Slicing tomatoes
Leeks Fingerling potatoes
Yukon Gold potatoes Hardneck garlic
Elephant garlic CallalooShishito peppers Blackcherry tomatoes Cucumbers Summer squash
Sungold cherry tomatoes Bell peppers
Slicing tomatoes Okra
