The Spring Vegetable Share
How Long is the Spring Season?
The spring season starts on April 29th and lasts for 8 weeks.
What Kinds of Vegetables do Members Receive?
Asparagus and rhubarb are just a few of the treats that you will receive as part of the spring share. Your box will also include tender spring delicacies grown in our greenhouses and hoophouses. These include salad mix, bok choy, endive, arugula, baby turnips, baby chard, spinach, sprouts, dandelion greens, head lettuce, radishes and more.
Can Members Choose their Vegetables?
The average amount of produce received is slightly more than half a bushel. This is equivalent to a standard grocery bag. A typical spring share would include the following:
- 1 bunch radishes
- 1 bunch baby beets
- 1 bunch green onions
- 1 bunch baby carrots
- 2 heads lettuce
- 1 bunch arugula
How Often is Produce Delivered?
Where are the Vegetables Grown?
On average, produce grown by us at our Grayslake and Brodhead farms makes up at least ninty percent of the produce in the weekly box. We collaborate with several other local organic farmers in order to help protect our members from crop failure and to create a box that is as varied as possible from week to week.
