The Swarthmore CO-OP is proud to be a pick-up location for Happy Valley Berry Farms Summer Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. The summer CSA will begin on June 15th and continue through September 14th for a total of 14 weeks. The deadline to signup for the summer CSA is June 10, 2016.*
Three share sizes are offered: a full share for a family of 4 to 5; a partial share of smaller size portions appropriate for two people; a single share with smaller amounts for a single person’s use. Generally speaking, there are approximately eight to ten different fruits and vegetables in the full share, six to eight in the partial shares and six or seven in the single share. The size of the share varies from full shares to single shares reflecting how much a family of 4 or 5 can consume compared to an individual. For example, where the full share might receive one pound of a vegetable, a partial share would receive 3/4 of a pound and a single share would receive a half pound.
Pickup is on Wednesdays at the CO-OP after 3:30 p.m. Other sites may be available. For more information or to sign up for the summer CSA, download the 2016 Summer CSA Brochure.
