What’s In for Pick Your Own for CSA Members
Available for Pick your Own
Sage, Thyme, Peppermint, Spearmint, Oregano: Use clippers, take a handful of each
Cilantro and Dill: Use clippers, take a handful of each
Cut Flowers: Pick a bouquet! Please use clippers and pick so that more flowers will grow. Flowers are in two different areas now.
Medicinal Calendula: Use your thumb to pop off the flowers, take a handful to use fresh or dried for tea.
Parsley, Flat and Curly: Take a handful
Basil: Sweet, Sacred and Thai: Please pick tips so that more will regrow. Take a few handfuls of each. Sacred basil has a wonderful smell and is great in tea. There’s lots of basil out there right now.
Raspberries: Slowing down – still some berries in the first row. If still out there, 1 pint/ small and 2 pint/standard on farm distribution days – Tuesday and Saturday. 2 pint/small share and 4 pints/standard (double) if you come on a non-distribution day (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday or Thursday) or if you have a delivered share and don’t pick every week. Please follow the road south of the barn past the compost piles then look to your right. Please watch your step as you walk out there as there are woodchuck holes nearby in the grass.
Green and Wax Beans: 1 pint/small shares, 1 quart/standard shares.
Cherry Tomatoes: Just starting! Half pint per share. First fruits are at the bottoms of the plants
Pick-Your-Own crops are included as part of your share! They are available to pick any day of the week during daylight hours. Check the box to the right to see what is available. When you come to the farm, you can check the picking locations and weekly limits on the brown-and-yellow sign near the distribution tent. Containers and clippers are provided, though you may bring your own if you wish.
Each year we offer an abundance of Pick-Your-Own (PYO) crops at the farm. Most of your share will be harvested and washed for you to pick up at the farm or in your delivered box. However, shares also include PYO crops to give farm members the opportunity to get out in the field and pick items like flowers, beans, peas, herbs, and more.
Whether you pick up your share here at the farm or have a delivered box share, we encourage all members to come and enjoy the farm!
PYO crops will vary with the season.
Here are a few of the PYO crops you can enjoy:
- Sugar snap and snow peas
- Green, wax and purple beans
- Cherry tomatoes
- Flowers, an array of fragrant and colorful varieties
- Perennial herbs: Oregano, Thyme, Sage, Chives, Peppermint and more
- Hot Peppers
- Snack peppers
