Each week you will receive a box of made up of 6 items (vegetables/greens/root crops, value added products). Each of those 6 items will be enough for serving at least for 2-3 people.

Please note :
Please understand that this is a small Community Supported Agriculture "CSA" model. In a CSA model, the weather and growing conditions determine what is available each week. The grower (Green Effects) and the customer are subject to that weather. CSA's are not grocery store services that ship in produce from all over the world and have everything available all time. You will be getting the best of what is available in any given time.
