Coon Rock Farm is now accepting applications for its Spring/Summer Produce CSA. It will run for 20 weeks starting in mid April and running through the first week of September. Each week will include $24.00 of sustainably produced vegetables, herbs and fruits. At Coon Rock Farm we make our own compost for soil fertility and never use any artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides of any kind. The CSA subscription fee is $500 and includes 20 weeks of produce over a 25 week period. We now offer HOME DELIVERY! You can have your CSA box delivered directly to your door for just $4.00 per week. If you are interested in Home Delivery, simply indicate that on the application when you send it in. We deliver produce, vegetables, meat and eggs throughout the Triangle area including: Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Apex, Garner, Cary, Wake Forest, Holly Springs, Morrisville, Fuquay-Varina, Louisburg, Hillsborough and most of the Triad area now as well.
You will receive an email at the beginning of each week letting you know if there will be a delivery that week and what the contents of that week’s box are expected to be. Here are the types of items you should expect to receive each week in your box:
May: lettuce, mesclun, arugula, bok choy, cabbage, kale, greens, herbs, broccoli rabe, broccoli, spinach, turnips, lamb’s quarter, Swiss chard, beets, radish, carrots, green onions, various herbs
June: just about everything from May PLUS squash, zucchini, patti pan, sugar snap peas, snow peas, Vidalia-style bulb onions, garlic, French fillet green beans (haricot vert), new potatoes, various herbs
July: heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, beans, peas, sweet peppers, eggplant, Irish potatoes, heirloom fingerling potatoes, onions, sweet corn, okra, various herbs
August: same as July plus cantaloupe, honey dew, various exotic melons, edemame soybeans, field peas
September: just about everything from July, and August depending on the weather plus the first of the fall squash like butternut and acorn.
** In the event of crop failure or shortage, some additional produce may be sourced from other local organic farms.
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that a CSA is not for everyone and that not all CSA’s are alike. In order to handle the volume, we pack all of our CSA boxes the same which means you are not able to select what goes in your box and we only provide locally grown, in-season produce. If you are expecting out of season produce (like tomatoes in May) in your CSA box or if you want to choose the contents of your box each week, you will be disappointed and should not subscribe.
A Spring/Summer CSA subscription is $500. $250 is due with your application to reserve your spot and the balance is due at the start of the CSA.
EGGS: We also offer a weekly egg supplement to our Produce CSA — you can get one dozen pasture raised and antibiotic and hormone free eggs delivered each week with your CSA box. Eggs are $100 for the 20 weeks. Be sure to let us know on the application that you want to include eggs.
