Emily’s 2020 Healthy Harvest CSA Program
The 2020 Healthy Harvest CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Box Program offered by Emily’s Produce is an easy way to get the freshest produce available during the Spring, Summer, and Fall Seasons! By supporting a CSA Program, you are keeping your food dollars within your own community and giving LOCAL farmers the opportunity to do what they love the most – provide healthy, nutritious, delicious food that is only minutes or hours away from harvest. The CSA concept has become a popular way for customers to purchase fresh, locally grown produce in season and from someone that they can have a personal relationship with. The grower uses the consumer’s investment to plant, grow, and harvest the crops. Once the harvest begins, the farmer is committed to providing members with a weekly box of fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meat that are hand selected for quality and picked at the peak of ripeness and flavor.
Healthy Harvest Boxes F.A.Q.
What is the cost per box?
The boxes cost you $20 per week. They will contain approximately 3 to 5 different products that are being harvested or produced LOCALLY that week.
How many people can enjoy a single box?
One single CSA box is appropriate to accommodate a family of 2-4 – depending on how it is used. Remember, the contents of your box can be used to supplement your weekly meals or to provide a smaller family with an entire week’s worth of options. If you don’t think that one box will be enough … go ahead and order another!
What comes in the box? Can I choose?
Each week we go out into the fields to see what is the freshest produce available that week. You are guaranteed everything is local and in season. We look forward to choosing the BEST and FRESHEST products available!
Can you give some examples of what could be in the box?
Strawberries, Asparagus, Leafy Greens, Eggs, Local Meat, Carrots, Beets, Beans, Squash, Peas, Cucumbers, Onions, Radishes, and more
Blackberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Melons, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Beans, Cucumbers, Peppers, Squash, Zucchini, and more
Sweet Corn, Winter Squash, Tomatoes, Leafy Greens, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Local Cheese, Cabbage, Turnips, and more

Members are welcome to send someone else to pick up on their behalf! This is a great way to share the harvest with your family, neighbors or friends who are not CSA members. If a CSA box is not picked up at all, it will be donated to local Food Banks so nothing is wasted. Please remember, it is the member’s responsibility to pick up their box on the designated day – alternate arrangements cannot be made on an individual basis … we want EVERY member to be satisfied 100% of the time!
How do I become a CSA Member?
To become a CSA Member that enjoys an entire Spring Season (10 Weeks), Summer Season (10 Weeks), or Fall Season (4 Weeks) you will place your order online! For all orders placed in advance of the start of the CSA Season, a 10% discount will be given for those that enroll for all three (3) seasons.
Can I receive Healthy Harvest Boxes occasionally?
For those that wish to order their boxes on an “as needed” basis, you can do that after the start of the CSA Season! You will not be afforded the discount opportunity, but you can order what you want, when you want! If the “as needed” basis is your choice … you will designate 1 person from your requested delivery address to be the “coordinator”.
Remember, you need 5 boxes to get a delivery, or you can order with no minimum if the location for pick up is Ledo Pizza or Emily’s Produce. You or your coordinator will call in the order to the market no later than Monday of the delivery week by 6pm. The coordinator is responsible for collecting the money due and taking delivery on Thursday. Payment is due on delivery.
What is the total cost per season?
Spring Season – 10 Weeks – $200
Summer Season – 10 Weeks – $200
Fall Season – 4 Weeks – $80
All 3 Seasons – $480 (Minus 10% = $432.00)
What is a “Fresh Freedom” CSA Membership?
If having your LOCAL farmer choose what will be in your box each week is not quite what you had in mind … The “Fresh Freedom” membership would be right for you! A $300 investment will give you $350 in credit to use anytime during the season at Emily’s Produce! Choose what you want, when you want it!
