2019 CSA PRODUCE SHARES

Blacksburg, Radford, and Pulaski customers!  We are pleased to announce that we have expanded our produce shares to 40 spots (we’ll have a waiting list, too, so don’t despair)!

Added to this website, you will see just above this post a navigation area that now has link to “CSA Produce Share.” Click that link and head over to our CSA page for details and breakdown of the program or just click here and go directly to our CSA page.

In brief, we will ofter freshly picked, high quality produce each week to our share members over a 20 week season.  Members will be emailed (so be sure to fill out the contact form) the Sunday before the Pulaski and Blacksburg distribution (Radford may be added) days.  The email will contain a list of available produce, and share members will choose what items they would like in their bags.

Pick-ups will be in Pulaski (Tuesdays from 4 to 7PM at the Marketplace) and Blacksburg (day, time, and location TBD).  Bring your empty bag back and get a full one in return.  No fuss no muss, in and out and ready to eat…it’s just that easy!

We have three payment options: you can pay for the full 20 weeks and receive a discount, you can pay for each month, or you can pay by the week.

Signup today!  Harvest season is just around the corner!  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some super fresh vegetables!

SNAP/EBT announcement

We are so very pleased to announce that, as direct marketers, we were approved by the USDA to accept SNAP/EBT benefits. We hope that this service will help expand the availability of fresh, nutritious foods to more community members in Pulaski and Montgomery counties. We should receive our equipment in the coming days, and we will notify all through another blog post when we are actually up and running. Just wanted to give folks the heads up and to share the exciting news as our market season is about to begin. SNAP logo

BUY. EAT. LIVE. LOCAL

We participated in the “Buy. Eat. Live. Local” campaign today by enjoying excellent service, food, and surroundings at Mountain Lake‘s beautiful Stony Creek Tavern. We also had the pleasure of meeting Chef Michael Rork and appreciate his zeal for sourcing locally produced products for his kitchen. Thumbs up to Chef Michael, and the ever-attendant Carol and Courtney for the care and conversation they gave us. After a great time inside, we took an enjoyable hike on the beautiful grounds and can’t wait to go back.
