Quiet Creek Farm members receive certified organic, fresh-picked produce weekly from June through mid-November. Our produce is hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness for maximum flavor and nutrition. We grow unique and heirloom varieties of vegetables to bring you outstanding flavor and variety which cannot be found in a grocery store.
In addition to the weekly vegetables, members have full access to our UPick garden with flowers, herbs, cherry tomatoes, green beans, sweet peas, and more. We also provide recipes as well as vegetable cooking and storage information. We host special community events for farm members throughout the season. At the farm we offer other locally, sustainably produced goods such as honey and eggs. Members also have the opportunity to purchase fruit, cheese, bread, pastured poultry, and wood-fired pizza shares which are delivered to Quiet Creek CSA on pickup day.
Members pack their own shares and get to make some choices of the vegetables in their weekly share. We offer both a small and regular share to accomodate all family sizes. The regular share is a family size share and feeds 2-4 people. The small share is suitable for couples, feeding about 2 adults, and contains 2/3 the produce of the regular share.
The vegetables in your share will change thoughout the seasons. Sample of a regular share in the summer follows: 4 lbs tomatoes, 4 red peppers, 2 zucchini, 1 watermelon, 1 cantaloupe, 2 eggplant, 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch Swiss Chard, 1 head lettuce, 1 head garlic, 3 onions, 1.5 pounds red potatoes.
