Fall/Winter 2017 Town of Chapel Hill CSA

The Wellness Committee is proud to announce the Fall/Winter Town of Chapel Hill’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program to begin October 2017 and invites you to be a member!

 

What is the Town’s CSA Program?

The program is a partnership between a local farm and Town employees: members invest in the farm at the beginning of the season and are supplied with weekly boxes of food delivered to a town facility.

What Farm will we use?

Brinkley Farm, who has provided the Town CSA for the past 2 years, is not offering a CSA this fall/winter. However, we were able to find another farm who would love to work with us this fall/winter: Coon Rock Farm is located in Hillsborough and grows over 100 varieties of mostly heirloom vegetables & fruits without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides of any kind. For more information about the farm, here is the link to their website: coonrockfarm.com

A typical Fall CSA box will contain 4 to 6 items each week:

·         lettuces & leafy greens, like arugula, spinach & romaine

·         heartier greens like collards and kale

·         headed crops like broccoli, brussel sprouts & cauliflower

·         roots, like carrots, beets, & sweet potatoes

In addition to providing a Produce CSA, participants can also opt to sign up for a weekly Egg and/or Meat CSA.

How do I sign up?

Contact Liska Lackey at llackey@email.unc.edu or 919-968-2796. She will provide you with instructions.

When is the deadline to join?

Friday, September 15

How long does the program last?

The program will last for 12 weeks.

How much does the CSA cost?

There is one size offered, enough for a family of 4, and it is $300.

Optional Egg CSA (1 dozen pasture raised eggs each week): $72

Optional Meat CSA (several pounds of pasture raised, heritage breed lamb, poultry, pork or beef): $500

Can I “split” a share with someone?

Yes, several employees have partnered with another employee and it worked well for them to split a share.

What town facility will be used for the CSA pick-up?

CSA pick-up will be in the Town Wellness Clinic which is located in the basement of the Town Housing Office at 317 Caldwell Street.
