Below is information on the 2015 season. The contract link was sent to prospective members on our mailing list on March 1st.
If you would like the contract link and more detailed information, please email info[at]foresthillscsa[dot]com.
For the 2015 season, we have vegetable and fruit shares.
We also have middle and low income vegetable shares, as our finances allow.
Because of the unpredictability of the tomato season, tomato shares will be offered directly from GEOF, as they were in 2014. Sign-up for tomato shares will occur during the tomato season, probably in August and September, once our farmers know how many shares are available.
To be a Forest Hills CSA member, you need to order a vegetable share.
Members may order from the Lewis Waite Farm CSA Extras program, which strives to connect small farms and producers to consumers within our region. They offer a single platform for you to gain access to a wide variety of farm fresh, all natural, artisanal, and organic products. Between the Extras service and a CSA share, you can eliminate (or at least greatly reduce!) the weekly trip to the grocery store.
They partner with small, family run operations. If you have questions, they can ask the person who grew or made your food. Their producers take great pride in their products, and LWF takes pride in offering them to us. Orders are placed via their online platform. You pay as you go, and order only what you want. Free delivery to our CSA!
Lewis Waite Farm CSA Extras can offer you pasture raised meat and poultry (10 kinds of meat), fresh eggs and bread, grass fed butter, yogurt and ice cream, artisan cheese from sheep, goat or cows’ milk, including aged raw milk cheeses. They offer many pantry staples, too, all local and naturally made: granola, fresh stone-ground organic flour, dried organic beans and grains, natural jams and chutneys, natural sweeteners, locally roasted organic coffee, apple cider vinegar, and more. You can see a complete list on their website, www.csalewiswaitefarm.com.
The 2015 main season will start May 26th, 2015 and run every Tuesday (4-8PM) through to November 17th, 2015. For a total of 26 weeks. Distribution is Tuesdays from 4-8PM at The-Church-in-the-Gardens, at 50 Ascan Avenue.
