Blenheim Organic Gardens CSA is delivered to Fredericksbug and King George, or it may picked up at the farm. The vegetables, herbs &/or fruit are USDA Certified Organic and grown entirely on Blenheim Farm. They are usually washed, cleaned &/or bunched or bagged. We pack the CSA share in a waxed box with members' names on the box. Members put the contents of their box in a tote bag, leaving the empty box to be returned to the farm to be refilled for the following week. The selection of produce is what is in season. There are 6-9 items, a bunched vegetable being 1 item, in the box each week. Earlier in the season, when there is less to choose from, the share will likely contain 6 items, but in the summer there could even be 10 items in a weekly share! The selection of produce ranges from Arugula to zucchini. (Check out our list of vegetables, fruit & herbs we grow in our Local Harvest listing, where you can also find recipes.) Each week the CSA box will have a list of that week's produce, & very often recipes & ideas how to prepare the produce. Satisfied CSA members enjoy experimenting and cooking with newly introduced vegetables! CSA members are invited to the farm at least 2 times a year. We have an Open House in late April so CSA members can see the farm before the season starts, and in July or August we host a Tomato Tasting Day, which includes a picnic and farm tour.

Our Fall CSA will start mid September for a 10 week Fall CSA. Things that may be in our Fall CSA are: radishes, salad mix, arugula, kale, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, head lettuces, bok choy, cabbage, Asian greens, spinach, kohlrabi, herbs and lots of sweet potatoes. Before frost we also have the late summer crops, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant ,okra, crowder peas, beans and basil, and possibly other things. All Certified Organic and Grown on Our Farm. The weekly CSA share typically contains 6-9 items, often times 8-9. And we usually have a bountiful CSA share the Tuesday before Thanksgiving! Many of our CSA members particularly enjoy our Fall CSA.
