Customize your share each week! It’s as simple as one, two, three… One of the most distinguishing features of our CSA is that you choose what goes into your produce box. Each week we bring the region’s complete selection of fruits and vegetables from the farm. We portion and display everything into three clearly marked stations, and let you choose. Each station is well staffed and labeled to assist you along the way. We guarantee a bumper crop! In addition to growing our own fruits and vegetables, we are an established purveyor of farm fresh produce. In our 30 years of experience, we have developed long-standing relationships with an extensive network of farms in the DC region and guarantee an abundance of fresh produce on our tables. How it Works Join Norman’s CSA farm share program to enjoy fresh produce from around the region while getting the most bang for your buck. Unlike other produce delivery boxes which only allow you to add more or less of predetermined items, your farm share is entirely customizable. Each week, you can tailor your CSA box and pick the produce that looks perfect to you. Joining is simple. You select: • your share season • share size • weekly pick-up date Ready to sign up? Here’s how it works: To SIGN UP for the CSA FARM SHARE Step 1: Choose a Season Our CSA program runs from May into December for 34 Weeks. We offer the flexibility to pick and choose how much of the season you wish to commit to. If you just want to give CSA a try or know you will be away, you can customize the length of your farm share subscription to meet your needs. Step 2: Choose a Size We offer three sizes of produce boxes to choose from. We recommend that a household of 1-3 people start with a small produce box, 6-8 items; while a household of 4(+) may wish to start with a large produce box, 12-15 items. For those that can’t get enough, we also offer a jumbo size, 18-23 items. Step 3: Choose a Pickup Location Select the day and location that works best for you. Whether you would like to pick up on your way home from work, during the day, or come out on the weekend, we offer many options from which to choose. How to PICK UP Your Farm Share Each week, customize your produce box by choosing your own items. All products are organized into 3 clearly labeled stations with instructions on how much to choose per share. Our friendly staff keeps the tables well stocked and is always ready to assist with selecting, suggesting, and offering recipe ideas. Station 1. Mixed Produce Table This station features fresh fruits, vegetables, and more. Early on there will be strawberries, asparagus, high tunnel tomatoes, eggs, gallon plants, and pantry items. During mid-season corn, melons, berries, beans, cherry tomatoes, salad and stir-fry greens will fill the tables. Late into the season, you will find fall squash, pumpkins, preserves, cider, local cheeses, and eggnog. The number of items per share will vary and depend on the time of the season and the size of your share. Station 2. Fresh Vegetables For much of the season, you will fill your produce box with assorted veggies such as tomatoes, squash, peppers, cucumbers, potatoes, and onions. Small produce boxes will fill a small basket, (2 quarts). Large produce boxes will fill a large basket, (4 quarts). Jumbos will fill both, (6 quarts). Station 3. Fresh Fruit Fill your basket with fruit and heirloom tomatoes for most of the season. Here you will find a large assortment of peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, nectarines, apples, and pears as well as our own homegrown heirloom tomatoes. Small shares will fill a small basket, (2 quarts). Large shares will fill a large basket, (4 quarts). Jumbos will fill both, (6 quarts).
