HARVEST BOX: MEAL CSA
Introducing Harvest Box!
The new CSA: one whole meal with local ingredients.
For 2017: Apple Acres will be offering a 12 week “meal in a box” CSA, similar to online meal-delivery services, but LOCAL, with many ingredients picked the same day you receive your meal! Each Harvest Box comes with perfectly proportioned, local ingredients and a helpful recipe card, so that you can make a nutritious meal that everyone will love in under 30 minutes.
All of the recipes come as either Omnivore or Vegetarian, and are priced per person, per meal. A family of two would get 2 shares, a family with two kids would get three shares (kids usually eat 1/2 a share).
The CSA exclusively features local produce and local meat, and sources grains from local farms or distributors. Occasionally ingredients that do not grow in our region will be sourced from small, local distribution companies. Each box will feature at least one item which can be purchased in the Apple Acres farm store!
