What’s In My Share?

As a member of the Fredericksburg Area CSA Project, you  receive a share of the harvest from our farmers each week. Exactly what, and how much, does depend on a few factors including what crops our farmers have chosen to plant this season, crop & weather conditions, and what is ripe that week.

Typically, a full share is large enough for 2 -4 people to comfortably consume within a week’s time. Many of our members with small households enjoy some of the produce that week and then freeze or can the rest to enjoy in the winter. And for those members who want even more produce, many of our farmers will offer up bulk purchasing opportunities as crop conditions allow.

Because we know some members do choose to split a hare with a friend, anytime we have a special item (such as local honey or fresh pressed apple juice!), we are sure to include it for two weeks in a row. That way you can take one home one week, and your share partner can enjoy the same bounty the next!

To give you an idea of a typical season, we’ve included the a sampling of different weeks from our 2015 harvest below:Certified Naturally Grown  and organic Harvest Bar
