FAQ’s

The Produce Pack FAQ's

What is a CSA?

CSA is an acronym for Community Supported Agriculture. The Produce Patch Farm Market is giving our community a
chance to invest in a share of your local farmer’s crop for the season. By participating in a CSA, you are partnering
with your local farmers to provide you with a good value and variety of healthy, fresh produce. By partnering with
The Patch, you become a valued member of our farm family. Your support allows us to share our harvest and be a
strong contributor to our local food economy.
The CSA allows us to fulfill our mission. Our mission is to share our heritage and passion for hard work and
agriculture by bringing the farm to our customers every day with healthy, delicious, locally grown fruits and
vegetables in convenient locations with service that is helpful, knowledgeable, and makes you smile.

What is the Produce Pack partnership?

The Produce Patch will be offering 300 boxes with a variety of fresh, local produce each week. Fresh-picked produce is packaged for you on the farm and delivered to you in your neighborhood or near your workplace. It is a convenient way for you and your family to establish and enjoy healthy eating habits this summer!

What is the cost of the Produce Pack partnership?

  • Full Pack: $32 per week / $512 prepay
  • Partial Pack: $20 per week / $320 prepay

We encourage prepaying for the 16 week season upon initial delivery, and you do not have to worry about carrying cash or check with you to each delivery.

Cash, check, or credit is accepted for prepays, but only cash or check for weekly pay.

Please make checks payable to The Produce Patch.

How much produce will I receive in my pack?

You get to choose how much produce you will receive each week! We offer packs in 2 sizes, a Full Pack and a Partial Pack. The size pack you choose will depend upon your eating and cooking habits and the size of your family.

To provide an example of the variety and quantity, last year, during the peak season, each pack included the following.

  • Full Pack: 1 dozen of Aces High Sweet Corn, 1 cantaloupe, 1/2 pint blueberries, 5 regular red tomatoes, 1 large Brandywine tomatoes, 1 large yellow tomato, lettuce, 4 green peppers, and a lemon cucumber.
  • Partial Pack: 1/2 dozen of Aces High Sweet Corn, 1 cantaloupe, 1/2 pint blueberries, 2 large red tomatoes, 1 large brandywine tomato, cauliflower, lettuce, 2 green peppers, and a lemon cucumber.

The variety and quantity will vary depending availability throughout the growing season.
