We will be receiving our CSA farm share of veggies/fruits starting late Oct. from the Family Garden, and this fruit only share will be a supplemental addition to that. At only $550 for the season (until June!), this adds up to less than $20 a week for our organic fruits and veggies from the farm share, a really great deal! Plus, I don't have to shop 3 or 4 different stores just for the organics sales and selections. Also, this helps us to eat more seasonally, which is a great thing as well. Because the farm share amount is due in full at the beginning of the season, you may need to save up, but I think the payoff is worth it. I'll take photos and let you all know as we get our farm shares what we got that week. The link to the Homegrown Organics group is HERE. A FULL box of fruit and veggies is $40 a week. HOWEVER, you do not need to commit to every week! You can get one every other week. You can also get a 1/2 share for $25, a fruit only share for $15, or even a low glycemic box for $25! They also have organic beef, eggs and such available. Check the website for details!
As for our farm share, this comes from the Family Garden farm that is local to our area, located in Bell, FL. Organic fruit and veggies are sold weekly at the downtown farmers market if you want to buy a few things here or there, or make up your own box. You can visit their website to learn more about the farm, or the CSA program HERE.
