Sargent’s is excited to be offering the CSA program again in 2017. This year we will be offering full shares a week ahead of the half share; half shares will only be offered if supplies last after beyond the first week of full share sales. Split a full share with a friend, neighbor, or co-worker to ensure you get in on the fresh vegetables this upcoming season!
Retired IBMer, avid vegetable gardener, and tomato specialist, Mike Pascoe, leads the project utilizing the farming skills he honed as a youth on his family’s ranch near Spearfish, S.D. This is the perfect way to supplement your garden or enjoy the harvest from a vegetable garden you wish you had space and time for. Meet Farmer Mike…
Purchase your share of the garden and enjoy a box full of fresh seasonal vegetables and herbs weekly. The program will run for 10 weeks (mid-July through late-September). A full share in Sargent’s CSA is $300 and a half-share (if available after 3/27) is $200. Have your choice of two convenient pickup locations –
- Sargent’s North every Tuesday after 3 pm, OR
- Sargent’s on 2nd every Thursday after 3 pm
Some of the vegetables (expect many varieties!) we plan to grow include –
Carrots, beets, potatoes, onions, broccoli, cabbage, green beans, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow summer squash, tomatoes, green peppers, hot peppers, sweet corn, herbs – garlic, basil, parsley, cilantro, watermelon, and winter squash – butternut, acorn, buttercup
Vegetables and herbs will be locally grown. Tours for CSA members will be offered.
Please note that produce not picked up within 3 days will be donated to the Channel One Food Shelf. Please remember that you are buying a share of the garden and the natural risk associated with gardening. We expect the garden to be bountiful but produce levels may vary depending on crop performance. Full share boxes are about the size of 2 milk crates. Half-share boxes are about the size of 1 milk crate.
Only 25 shares will be sold. Don’t miss out. Order yours today!
