Community Supported Agriculture
By joining our CSA, you are making a commitment to support Phillies Bridge, and in return, we provide you with fresh, seasonal vegetables and some fruits throughout the growing season. This partnership provides the farm with cash flow early in the season and the customer with a good price on fresh, sustainably grown produce.
We grow over 150 varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers, providing our Shareholders with a vast array of fresh produce throughout the season. We do our best to grow an abundance of the basics throughout the season, as well as a smattering of unusual or specialty vegetables.
We offer our shares in two sizes, big and small. Our big shares are designed for a 3-4 person family or 1-2 hungry vegetarians, and our small shares are designed for 1 to 2 people.
Example of a Big Share: 1 big bunch of onions, 2 lbs. cucumbers, 1 lb. kale or chard, 2 heads of lettuce, 2 lbs of carrots, 2 lbs of eggplant or zucchini, 4 lbs of tomatoes, 1 lb. bell peppers
Example of a Small Share: 1 small bunch of onions, 1 lb. cucumbers, 1/2 lb. kale or chard, 1 head of lettuce, 1 lb. of eggplant or zucchini, 2 lbs. of tomatoes, 1/2 lb. bell peppers
While we do have some choice built in to the weekly shares, we encourage shareholders to make use of our “SWAP BOX”. If you do not like an item in the share, you are welcome to trade it for another similarly sized item in the swap box.
In addition to these shares, all shareholders have access to the pick your own field any day of the week during daylight hours. We grow flowers, peas, beans, cherry tomatoes, tomatillos, husk cherries, hot peppers and a variety of herbs.
As a shareholder, you will receive a weekly newsletter with farm news as well as recipes and helpful cooking tips for dealing with the more unusual vegetables in the share.
