A medium share is in a 5/9 bushel box. A large share is in a 1 1/9 bushel box. A medium share is designed for two people and a large is designed for four people. Early and late produce is grown in hoop houses as season extension crops. Our boxes contain primarily vegetables, with fruits added. Each week I strive to produce a nice variety of crops in ample quantities. Included in CSA membership is a weekly newsletter and farm party(ies) a year so members will be able to find a connection between their food and their farmer. We deliver to numerous locations within Chicago and suburbs for your convenience.
