We thank you all so much for diverting your dollars into local, organic vegetable production—this is a huge step towards regenerating our food system. However, most of us enjoy our veggies in addition to other foods. The more we prioritize sourcing locally and sustainably, the more resilient our food economy will be.
Add-Ons for 2017
NORTH STAR ORCHARD: Fruit Share
North Star Orchard is located in Cochranville, PA and specializes in growing unique and heritage varieties of tree fruits. Selections include several hundred varieties of apples and dozens of varieties of peaches, nectarines, plums, pears, grapes, and Asian pears. The Fruit Share is a very popular option for folks who are looking for more than mediocre, imported grocery store fruit. We received a share last year and were blown away by the quality and flavors--nothing like the fruit you buy at the store. It's difficult to find fruit on the East Coast grown organically, because of the insects, humidity, and diseases during the summer months. North Star prioritizes the health of the environment and the community they're feeding. To learn more about their practices, read here.
- $260; 12 weeks of fresh fruit starting in August. Payment options available. A share contains a nice amount of fruit each week for two fruit-loving adults, who each eat about 1 or 2 pieces of fruit per day, or for a small family.
*We will not be delivering fruit shares to Swarthmore or Eagleview Farmers' Market CSA members, since fruit vendor attend the markets.
SIGN-UP IS DONE SEPARATELY ON THEIR WEBSITE. FOR MORE INFORMATION AND SIGN-UP DETAILS, PLEASE VISIT THEIR SITE HERE.
