2019 CSA: Week One

Farmer Tyler showing off this week’s CSA box contents.

The first week of the CSA is here! After a long winter and spring of seeding, transplanting, weeding (more weeding) and harvesting we can’t wait to deliver each of our customers their first boxes this week!

Our CSA has grown substantially this year and we want to welcome each customer – returning and new – to our program. We cannot say enough how much we appreciate each of you, your support of Terravine Growers, and your support of sustainable employment for adults with disabilities. We are proud to do what we do and proud to be able to share it with all of you.

  • Broccoli: refrigerate unwashed in a plastic bag
