W2020 CSA Farm Shares from Amador Hill Farm and Orchard, A Farm Program of the Women's Environmental Institute
In 2020 WEI introduces something new for you! We know you'll love the versatility of our three season CSA farm shares. This year we intensify our focus on seasonal produce. Each box is designed for seasonal eating at its best, most nutritious, and flavorful moment.
Purchase one, two, or all three of our Season CSA Farm Shares and receive weekly boxes filled with fresh, organically certified produce grown on WEI's Amador Hill Farm in North Branch, MN. CSA boxes are delivered to drop-sites around the Metro area and North Branch area every Friday before 2 pm - you pick up your produce just in time for the weekend! Your CSA purchase directly supports our farming and sustainability education program and helps WEI serve our mission of food, farming, and environmental justice.
Each box contains 7-10 varieties of fresh-picked produce. Our farm shares are suitable for a family of three or four who cooks meals at home two to three nights per week or households with two veggie-lovers who cook frequently. We provide cooking suggestions for each box with recipes and food storage tips.
