CSA

Community Supported Agriculture

Our CSA for Concord, NH and the surrounding areas runs from mid-May through September with 20 weekly pickup days on either Tuesday  or Thursday.  Support your local farmer and  benefit from bumper crops.  We  are eager to serve you!

Here is what you can expect:

 

Spinach Cucumbers Winter Squash
Lettuce Garlic Peppers
Beets and Beet Greens Sweet Potatoes Onions
Carrots Potatoes Leeks
Summer Squash Tomatoes Herbs: Basil, Cilantro, Dill, Parsley, Rosemary
Zucchini Cherry Tomatoes Egg Plant
String Beans Melons Kohlrabi
Strawberrys Pumpkins Peas
Blackberrys Cut Flowers Kale
Swiss Chard Peas Sweet Corn

Some are concerned that all they will receive is green leafy vegetables.  It is correct that what is in season is what our CSA members will receive in their weekly pickup.  The season always starts off with a limited amount of leafy greens like kale, beets, and lettuce, but soon works it way into a large variety, and always ends with a bang of pumpkins and winter squashes.  We have read many studys that show eating what is fresh and in season is of great benefit to our bodies, as opposed to having just the favorites available all year long.

Each week is different, and the amount and variety is always changing, but this is what we have found over the years:

1/2 share is ideal for 2 adults and possibly a small child. Many of our small families choose to supplement their 1/2 CSA share with additional produce purchased at a discount price from the farm stand. We do have several individuals who are able to consume 1/2 share themselves in a week's time.

A full share is ideal for 2 adults that strictly eat a vegetarian diet, or family of 3-5 who are omnivores. You will receive roughly two times the produce of a 1/2 share. For example 6 ears of corn verses 3.

With all that in mind, we know that no one plan will fit everyone's individual situation, and we are small enough to give you personalized attention. 

Our CSA is hands down a fantastic value over purchasing your veggies directly form the farm stand or farmers market.

Hear from our Past CSA Members

"
This is the first year we have participated in your CSA and were very happy with the quality, quantity, and variety that we were provided with each week, especially compared with other CSAs that we have participated in.  Huge blackberries and fresh cut flowers were welcome surprises!  As well as the abundance and variety of tomatoes each week. Farmer David was also always happy to pick something fresh that wasn't out on the table and was flexible with any substitutions that were requested based on our likes or dislikes. We had so many veggies that we didn't have to buy any at the grocery store all summer!  Can't wait till next spring!"

"We have loved participating in the Lewis Farm CSA this year.   We have received a wide variety of veggies and even fresh-cut flowers. I love knowing that my salads and side dishes are healthy, fresh and that I am supporting a local business."

"I'm planning to return for a CSA in 2013!  The quality and variety was excellent and I feel good about eating fresh and local.  The weekly visit to the farm was a highlight for my mom and myself! Please keep up the good work and we look forward to next season.

Thanks Harry and David!"

"I have done several different CSAs in the Concord area, and what I appreciate about Lewis Farm CSA is their flexibility in scheduling times that work for members and assuring that the specific produce is something desired by the member.  For example, we do not like a lot of greens, so David or Harry always offer an alternate item instead.  And, I love the variety available...sweet potatoes this year and lots of different kinds of tomatoes as I am a real tomato lover!  And, the corn was the best this year ever!"
