We excitedly unveiled our CSA shares for 2017 via a Facebook video on Small Business Saturday last week. Did you miss it? Follow us on Facebook today!
We’ve been surveying our customers and friends for several years now and we know variety and convenience are your number one priorities. So we’re going to offer our traditional produce CSA again this year, but with some tweaks. First, we’ll be adding to our variety as we do every year. Second, we’re going to take a few weeks off throughout the season – so it’s still an 18-week season, but spread out over 21 weeks, so the season spans over a little longer period, allowing for us to provide more variety. And third, we’ve increased our drop off locations this year, adding two more geographical locations since last year. You can sign up now here.
What’s your egg share?
So many of our members are ordering our organic farm-fresh eggs this week, we thought we’d make it a little easier, allowing you to sign up for a egg CSA share. You can choose from 1 or 2 dozen shares, which are delivered to our same drop off sites each week. Our eggs are normally sold for $4.00/dozen and members pay $3.50/dozen. Ordering a share ensures that eggs will be available for you each week and you receive a small discount. You can sign up now here.
A meat share? What’s that?
By working with two other local farmers, we’re excited to bring you a meat share this year. We’ll be providing 10 pounds of either organic or chemical free meat each month to shareholders. Our meat is pasture-raised and often raised much more humanly than commercial products. Meat in each share will include organic chickens (whole or half roasters, stewing), grass-fed beef (ground or roast), organically-fed pork (brats, breakfast sausage, or ground), and organic goat (chops, roast, or ground). Members can choose from a six-month share or twelve-month share. You can sign up now here.
I heard Nancy reference dinner boxes in the video. Can you tell me more?
New for 2017, we’ll be offering dinner boxes on a weekly basis. Each week during our season we’ll bring you a new recipe, as well as the meat and the produce to make the recipe, which will feed a family of 4. Orders will be placed by email each week for pick up in the following week (no ongoing commitment). Prices will vary slightly each week, but will be approximately $30 for the box. Pick up will be at Kellner Back Acre Garden’s farm only. We’ll be posting more about this on our website in spring. But if you’re interested in gift certificates for those busy families in your life now, call Nancy or visit us at the New Leaf Winter Market at the KI Center in Green Bay starting December 10th.
Here’s a sample that we made up and we’ll have available this weekend at the market
Excited for 2017? We are!
