Time to sign up for Community Supported vegetable and fruit shares
If you like fresh vegetables and fruit read on!
Burlington Presbyterian Church and Farmer Dave’s, a sustainable farm in Dracut, MA, continue to bring locally-grown, fresh fruits and vegetables to the town of Burlington with a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. In the CSA program, consumers become shareholders of the farm for the season by paying for their share of the harvest upfront, and in return will receive a share of freshly-harvested produce for 20 weeks from mid-June through late October. Shares will be conveniently boxed and ready for pick-up on Monday afternoons from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. at Burlington Presbyterian Church, 335 Cambridge St. Vegetable shares are available in small, regular, and “super-family” sizes to suit the produce needs of individuals to large families. Every share includes generous portions of the season’s bounty, each in its due time, including summer favorites such as tomatoes and corn, cooking staples like onions, carrots and potatoes, as well as chefs’ picks like chard, beets, and other novelties to experiment with throughout the season. The CSA also offers a fruit share featuring strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, melons, peaches and apples. For more information about 2011 CSA membership including pricing, payment plans, and more, contact Farmer Dave's at (978) 349-1952 or visit http://www.farmerdaves.net to register.
