Low Cost Farm Box Summer 2017
Want to join our CSA?
Veggielution’s Farm Box program follows a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model, prioritizing a strong, direct connection between you, the customer, and us, the farmers. Our Farm Box members register for the full season and pick up their share of produce every week from June through November.
Each week you’ll receive a variety of fresh produce grown organically right here at Veggielution, experiencing first hand the rhythm of the San Jose growing season. A membership in our Farm Box CSA is a commitment to the farm and an opportunity to connect with your farmers and the broader Veggielution community. We hope you’ll join us in 2017!
