Organically Grown Vegetable Shares

 

100% of our vegetables are grown here in our fields at Taproot Farm.

All of our produce is seasonal, so you receive a weekly delivery of the freshest produce ever.

What to Expect in Your Share

 

Our weekly CSA Farm Shares come in 3 sizes: Small (5 items per week), Medium (7 items per week) and Large (10 items per week).

Each week we craft your CSA Farm Share so that you receive a diverse bounty of veggies, mixing in the basics with a little bit of the fun and unfamiliar.  You can expect sweet corn, and green beans, and tomatoes.  But CSA members also get to try some new and interesting vegetables like Komatsuna ( a Japanese cooking green), Romanesco (a beautiful star-like cauliflower), Corno di Toros (a sweet Italian pepper worlds away from a bell), and more.

Each week we send emails to our members, explaining what will be in the share that week, how best to use and store the items, along with new original recipes catered to the share.  

Each week’s bounty in meant to keep to a similar plan, switching the varieties throughout the weeks and months.  The weekly goal is to craft a share that includes a cooking green and a salad green, and fresh herb (basil or parsley) or an onion or garlic, fruits (when we have them)  like tomatoes, berries & melons,  a snacking vegetable (cucumbers, carrots, or sugar snap peas), something starchy when the season permits like potatoes, sweet corn, or winter squash, and then what we like to consider a veggie veggie: green beans, broccoli, eggplant, summer squash, peppers, beets…and the list goes on. 

At Taproot Farm we grow over 40 different vegetable varieties, many of which members will see reflected in their weekly CSA shares.

Take a look below to see a breakdown of what you might expect.

 

Tomatoes

Taproot grows a wide variety of tomatoes including Plums, Red Slicers, Cherries, Heirlooms and more! As long as tomatoes are in season, you can expect to receive them every week.

Berries and Melons

A Taproot Farm differentiator is that we manage an acre of organically grown blueberries. While they’re in season we include them in your share. Other berries and melons to expect while in season are Strawberries, Watermelons and Sweet Cantaloupes

Salad Greens

Each week the share will consist of one head lettuce (reds & greens, bibs & butter heads). However, throughout the seasons we mix it up here or there with salad mixes, microgreens, escarole, radicchio, dandelion & endive…and more.

COOKING GREENS

For the majority of the season, you will find 1 cooking green in your share. Varieties include; Swiss Chard, Kales, Boc Choy, Broccoli Raab and Komatsuna…we love our Asian and Italian Cooking greens!
