What’s in my box?
Mountain Freshies multi-farm harvest boxes contain a great mix of artisan fruits, veggies, greens and squashes that you’ll recognize and know how to use, as well as a few surprise items we may include from time-to-time. Austin Family Farm, our primary producer, either grows or sources the majority of produce included and because it is a multi-farm approach, we’re able to offer a lot of diversity over the course of the season.
Tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, summer and winter squashes, potatoes, cruciferous veggies such as broccoli/cauliflower, carrots, beets and other root veggies, green beans, chard, kale, greens, cucumbers, corn, and eggplant are usually pretty consistent, but some of these items maybe only be included once during the season. If you are a veggie lover and/or follow a plant-based diet, the larger family size boxes and the veggie only boxes will include a wider assortment of vegetables.
As long as we don’t experience any spring freezes that cause damage, a large variety of orchard fruits such as cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, nectarines, plums and apples are normally available to include in the boxes.
It is also important to remember that when you sign up for a CSA, it is Mother Nature which determines the abundance we experience.
We do not recommend our 15-week Farm-to-Family Harvest Box Program for customers who are sensitive to nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants) as we do not offer a “Build-a-Box” option and nightshades are often included, especially from late August until the end of the season. It may work for nightshade sensitive customers to subscribe to our Flex Box program and choose the first 8 weeks of the season which will be lighter in nightshades. Another option is to register for a Retail account to order specific produce in bulk.
Our Retail Shop is open to Farm-to-Family customers who would like to add-on items to their weekly boxes or culinary enthusiasts who want to elevate their pantry with an amazing assortment of artisan produce and specialty items which are sure to delight. Access to our retail storefront is included when you register as a Farm-to-Family member at a participating location*, or you can sign up as a Retail customer without joining our CSA.
*There are a few locations which accept our Farm-to-Family Harvest box deliveries, but do not participate as Retail drops. These locations are noted under their description information.
Weights are based on season long averages, they are approximate and are not guaranteed, as the type of produce included from week-to-week varies. While we strive to meet these standards as often as possible, there are weeks when items such as lightweight leafy greens or heavy squashes, will result in boxes being under or overweight.
The Flex Box is an 8-week program and you get to choose the weeks. The Flex Box is the same size and offers the same items as our Mixed Fruit/Vegetable Box. It is your responsibility to make sure you schedule the 8 boxes you’ve paid for by the end of the season, as there are no refunds for orders that don’t get placed. Changes to your delivery dates can be made at any time throughout the season, as long as you provide at least one week notice.
NEW THIS YEAR, we are offering our customers the opportunity to extend subscription deliveries for 6 weeks at participating locations. The Fall/Winter Harvest Boxes will include a mix of apples, onions, potatoes, a winter squash, fresh greens or cabbage and an additional root veggie such as carrots or beets. The final box in January may also have some citrus!At the end of the summer season on October 12/13, we’ll take a 2-week break and then resume deliveries as follows:
November: 2/3, 9/10, 16/17 | December & January: 3 delivery dates TBD
