Young Female Farmers C S A Community Supported Agriculture Bringing Produce to your neighborhood weekly! Spring boxes begin (March 7- May 30) Summer boxes begin (June 7- August 29) We are excited to announce our Naturally Grown Certification which validates our vested interest in producing pesticide free produce to the community. Certified Naturally Grown is a trusted National Organization with more than 750 farmers and beekeepers located in 47 states and four Canadian provinces. What are the benefits of joining our C S A ?
Receiving 8-10 varieties of Pesticide Free vegetables
Locally sourced Free Range Chicken or Duck Eggs
Locally sourced Fruit in season
How many meals can be prepared from 8-10 varieties of vegetables? 2-5 people who eat at home at least 4-5 times a week. Pickup day is every Wednesday and we’ve chosen the middle of the week to allow for the stress of Monday and Tuesday to subside and make headroom for meal planning. We’ve also discovered that if we wait until the end of the week a few customers travel and or don’t cook on the weekends and fear their vegetables will wilt and go to waste. Wednesday pickup gives you the customer, 3 days before the weekend and 2 days after to enjoy fresh food. What kind of vegetables may you expect? As your local farmer we ask you to remember that vegetables are grown seasonally, meaning you cannot get Okra in March or Acorn Squash in May! Cool weather crops include: Leafy Greens, Cabbage, Kale, Chard, Beets, Radishes, Peas, and Onions. Moving further into the warmer months the box will include Squash, Okra, Tomatoes, Green Beans, and Cucumbers with a fruit each week that is purchased from the Georgia state Farmers Market and our neighborhood Blueberry Farms. What is the cost? The customer must make the commitment to pay $100 bi-weekly or $200 a month throughout the season (12 weeks) Once the season begins, cancellations will be subject to a $25 penalty fee. Why, because once the vegetables are harvested they cannot be redistributed. If you have plans to be away, then gifting your box to a neighbor is also a wonderful alternative. We cannot stress enough the importance of our neighbors understanding that a Community Supported Agriculture Box depends upon the members financially supporting the efforts of the farmer with enough transparency to ask questions about their food source or visit the location and eat pesticide free food that hasn’t traveled hundreds or thousands of miles picked weeks early, or green. Young Female Farmers is looking forward to a successful growing season and a season that supports and provides the local neighborhood with nourishing food grown from the earth, from our soil to your kitchen!
