Summer Share 2017
June 14th to Oct 4th
It's never too soon to sign up for your CSA share! Sign up today for your Summer Share!
The Summer CSA Share is the fresh food lover's dream! Our Summer Share is filled with all of the best and freshest produce gathered for you. This is true "farm to plate" eating as many of our veggies are picked just days, even hours, before they're sent to you. Throughout the summer, you enjoy the height of vegetable production granted us by Vermont's long, warm days and our fertile valley soil. If you've never had a CSA share before, this is THE perfect introduction!
By June and the start of our Summer Share, our greens are growing, our fields are blooming and the offerings become more diverse as each week arrives. Heirloom tomatoes, mesclun, various greens, onions, carrots, eggplant, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, herbs, sweet & hot peppers, sweet corn, summer and winter squash are just a handful of the vegetables that we grow. We intend to provide a good amount of standard vegetables each week such as salad greens, carrots, cucumbers, beans, peas, head lettuce, potatoes, onions, summer squash and tomatoes. But you can expect a great level of diversity with over 70 different varieties likely throughout the 17 week season which includes the end of spring, the height of summer, and the early part of fall. We started as a farm catering to high-end restaurants and continue to grow many of the unique and heirloom varieties requested by our chefs.
This period’s offerings may include prepared and preserved foods from Pete's Kitchen including fresh salsa, applesauce, pesto, pickles, kimchi, and pizza dough and sauce. We are planning to include free-range eggs every few weeks; a variety of berries, tree fruits, and apples from Champlain Orchards; yogurt, cream, cornmeal, and pastry flour from Butterworks Farm; an array of Northeast Kingdom sheep, cow, and goat cheeses; Vermont Soy tofu products; breads from Elmore Mtn. Bakery and Red Hen Baking Company; oyster and shiitake mushrooms; popcorn, rolled oats, pearled barley, tamari, and miso from several Quebec farms; dried cranberries from Vermont Cranberry Company; and items like local, handrolled tortillas. Many of these items are certified organic and all are locally produced by excellent farms and producers. There may even be more surprises!
Our CSA Share Types
Localvore Share: This is our most popular share and designed for Vermont foodies! It'll fill your fridge and pantry with enough vegetables and local staples to cook healthy and well each week. We take care each week to combine vegetables with local items that work well together so that you have ingredients that go together in recipes. And then we provide the recipes too! Price is $782 for 17 weeks*.
Veggie Only Share provides a great (8-10 item) weekly selection of seasonal organic vegetables from Pete's Greens. price is $493 for 17 weeks* worth of local, organic vegetables.
Half Veggie Only Share Appropriate for 1-2 people, the half share provides a smaller (5-7 item) selection of seasonal organic vegetables from Pete's Greens. Salad greens are the most difficult item to grow and the most precious in Jan/Feb. The larger shares get priority for these items though we do our best to provide them to all. The price is $374 for 17 weeks* worth of local, organic vegetables.
Half Veggie w/ Pantry Share is a smaller version of the Localvore Share. Same amount of weekly pantry items as are in the Localvore share or the Pete's Pantry share, the half share provides a smaller (5-7 item) selection of seasonal organic vegetables. The price is $663 for 17 weeks*.
Pete's Pantry Share provides the localvore items but not the vegetables. Price is $306 for 17 weeks.
Meat Share provides a variety of pastured, local and often organic meats. The meat share is delivered once a month and may include our own Pete's Pastured Chicken as well as pastured meats, sausages, kielbasa, steaks, hams and more from our neighbors here in Vermont. The price is $200 for four monthly deliveries - July, August, September, and October.
