Enrollment is now open for the 2018 Season!

Posted 2/10/2018 5:27pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Downtown Harvest CSA is thrilled to announce details of our 2018 season, our 14th year of bringing healthy New Jersey food to our urban community.  We will be adding new options to our offerings this year.

1) Farmer John Krueger, our farmer for more than a decade, will continue to be our farmer.

2) The 24-week season will begin in early June and will end in mid-November depending on weather and growing conditions.

3) The price of a full share will remain the same as in 2017: $675 for a full share.  Members who enroll before March 1 will receive a $25 discount, reducing the fee to $650.

4) Members who purchase produce shares will have the option of purchasing egg shares.  The fee for 1 dozen eggs/week will be $120, 2 dozen/week for 24 weeks will be $220, and 3 dozen/week will be $330.

5) We will continue to use “market style” distribution for full shares, in which members choose items from bins and may be offered choices of items.  Our popular "exchange bin" will be there, again, so you can exchange items you may not need for others that you want.  Items that are not picked up will be donated to the Our Lady of Sorrows food pantry in addition to shares generously donated by our members and our farmer.  

New for 2018:

6) Groups of people who wish to split shares will no longer need to pay additional administration fees for each member of the group.  One person will sign up for the group, insure that payment is made, and list the names of people authorized to pick up when you fill out the enrollment information on the website.  How you do your splitting is up to you.

7) Based on your feedback we will offer pre-boxed Half Shares as an alternative to splitting shares with partners.  “Grab your box and go” will be an attractive option for people who want a convenient way to purchase less than a full share‎. The pre-boxed share is $400 for the 24-week season.  Members who enroll before March 1 will receive a $25 discount, reducing the fee to $375.

8) The administration fee for one Full share or one pre-boxed Half share will $25 for the 24-week season.

9) Last season’s members will not automatically be re-enrolled.  We hope you wish to be a part of Downtown Harvest in 2018, and we ask you to visit our website and enroll for the 2018 season.

Notes: after enrolling for the 2018 season, members will receive payment instructions (enroll first, pay later).  Payment must be made by check.  However, we cannot provide refunds, so please be sure of your commitment before mailing or dropping off checks.

We are looking forward to another great 24-week season and encourage you to take advantage of the early enrollment discount!
