The 2013 Avodah Farm CSA season will begin in early June and last approximately eighteen weeks, ending in early October. Deliveries will be on Wednesday afternoons to our three conveniently located Twin Cities pick-up sites, in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and Mendota Heights, as well as our Eau Claire site. Pepin County locals can pick up their subscriptions on the farm.
Two subscription plans are available. A Regular Subscription will provide a bountiful box of vegetables and herbs every week of our season, and may be shared between two households if desired. A Traveler's Choice Subscription allows busy members to choose how many deliveries they wish to receive (from nine to sixteen) and which weeks they wish to receive them. Be sure to sign up early if you are interested in this option, as we have only a limited number of Traveler's Choice Subscriptions available.
We strive to provide a reliable supply of basic seasonal staples, while also adding novelty and variety to our members' diets. To fulfill that goal, we grow around 150 varieties of about 50 crops. Each weekly box will typically contain 10–15 different items, including something from the Allium family, such as onions, garlic, or scallions; some sort of cooking green, like kale or Asian greens; a root vegetable or two; and often a bunch of herbs. These will be joined by familiar favorites like lettuce, broccoli, green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, melons, winter squash and more as each crop comes into season.
Since everyone's eating habits are different, it's hard to say exactly how many people an Avodah Farm subscription will feed. However, we aim to provide plenty of produce for a family of four or five eating vegetables in healthy moderation; for two enthusiastic, dedicated vegetable eaters; or for one person planning on doing a lot of canning and freezing.
For our Twin Cities members, a Regular Subscription for 2013 costs $576, which works out to $32/delivery. Again, two households can share a Regular Subscription and split the cost. A Traveler's Choice Subscription also costs $32/delivery, plus a $48 convenience fee for the privilege of choosing your delivery dates.
