It’s that time of year, again – Homestead Creamery’s Fruit & Veggie Share is back for 2019!
Each year, we partner with local farms to deliver farm-fresh produce straight to the doors of our customers. For $25.99 per week or $500 upfront, shareholders will receive a portion of fresh, tasty vegetable crops that are locally raised. For an additional $17.99 per week or $153 upfront, you can receive an additional 5-7 lbs. of fresh local fruit! Your produce will always be farm fresh when it arrives at your door!
Why Buy Local Produce?
There’s nothing better than biting into a fresh, local tomato or ripe melon in the summertime! In season fruits and vegetables always taste best and have the highest nutritional value. Plus, with fewer miles to travel you can be assured that the produce is fresh. In addition, buying locally keeps your money circulating within your community, supporting economic prosperity in your region.
In the 2019 Veggie Share, you will receive approximately 10 pounds of vegetables and 5-7 pounds of fruits. The vegetables are grown on local family farms within a 2-hour radius of our area. You’ll also receive fruits that will come from within the United States until the true local growing season starts. You’ll receive a variety of fruits and vegetables from week to week.
Here is the projected vegetable harvest schedule:
Who Is Eligible?
Anyone who falls within the Home Delivery service area can get their farm fresh vegetable share delivered to their door each week. If you live in the Franklin County, Roanoke County, Roanoke City and portions of Lynchburg, Botetourt, and Salem areas, you could be eligible to be a shareholder!
Please note that by joining our Vegetable and/or Fruit share, you will be officially purchasing a seasonal CSA share and will be responsible for receiving and purchasing your share every week for the duration of the season. Each shareholder can choose one week “off” to account for vacations.
