1/10

Only 1 in 10 Americans get enough fresh veggies in their diet.

And because they can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent cancer, help manage weight and so much more, eating a diet rich in organic, nutrient-dense vegetables and local foods is now more important than ever. 

So why don't we eat more veggies?

  • I don’t know how to cook it
  • I don’t have the time
  • It’s too expensive
  • It doesn’t taste good
  • ___________Insert your excuse here…

But we're on a mission to change that!

Why is The Veggie Box for you?

Know your food’s story… from Farmers you trust.

You know your farmers. We grow it or know the source. You eat it.* No worrying about chemicals, GMO’s or e coli contamination. Not happening here!

Life’s too short to eat boring food.

Our food is fresh. It is grown in soil. And we try dozens of new varieties each year. All focused on delivering you the best flavor you can get.  “I had no idea (spinach, carrots, kale, tomatoes) could taste so sweet” is a common response we get! We hear from parents that their kids will ONLY eat our veggies, or, “it was gone by the time we got home.”

Your Private Health Plan

We all know we should eat healthy, but it can feel overwhelming. According to research, only 1 in 10 Americans eats enough vegetables. And because they can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent cancer, help manage weight and so much more, eating a diet rich in organic, nutrient-dense vegetables is now more important than ever.

What’s for dinner?

Tasty farm-fresh items… with an easy-to-prepare, quick recipe.

That’s right, we share a new recipe each week that helps you easily prepare your farm share. As busy parents ourselves, we make them easy to make and quick to prepare!

Unmatched variety … from Farmers you can trust

We produce a wide variety of crops and source from other trusted partners, with typically over 100 products in our store.

We help you source fresh, local, good-for-you food so you can enjoy eating fresh each week. Don’t worry about “what’s for dinner” with our weekly recipes.

Loved doing your own strawberry picking. It was fun and the berries are so delicious and so sweet. My husband and I are going to do it every other week to get out strawberries because we eat alot of them. You know where there coming from and what they use on the barries. That's why I rather have central farm strawberries because they are honest farmers. Plus all the other veggies and fruits they have are amazing to. The salad mix was so fresh and delicious my husband eat most of the salad which never happens

I love the fresh produce! Always so fresh & delicious!I also love the farm fresh eggs, fresh milk & a nice little variety of items offered. The staff is always very helpful & kind. You may think the prices are a little more than you would pay at the bigger stores, but where is THAT produce coming from? I will gladly pay a little more for fresh food grown right here plus it helps local families stay in business. That’s a double plus in my book!

What about…
(answers to your questions)

About one grocery bag per week, depending on the season. We include at least $30 of value each week. It is not a “huge” share, so a large family, will probably need to add more items each week, or get two shares. Actually, the most common complaint is that it’s “too much food” for some people.

We offer a biweekly share where you pick up every other week. As all our veggies will last two weeks, it allows you to save trips and still eat awesome food. Another option would be to split the share with a neighbor or friend.

With a Monthly auto-renewing plan, you can pause or skip a week (or longer) if you go on vacation. In fact, you can do that from your account portal with just a few clicks!

Seasonal Shares may skip a week and double up the next – no long-term holds

Organic egg and milk *shares* are only available with a CSA share.  However, anyone is welcome to buy milk or eggs in our farm store or add to their online purchase (some delivery areas excepted in hot weather). *Raw milk* is not available as a share or in the store – it is preordered from the dairy only.

Egg and milk shares are billed monthly and automatically put in your order. They are reserved just for you.  Also, egg shares are 20 cents off the regular dozen price.

Raw milk is not available in our Farm Store or part of the CSA due to state regulations. You purchase your raw milk “herd share” directly from Bair-Trax dairy and tell them you want to pick up here. We are just a drop point.

If you try the CSA and find that shopping in our store works better, we can cancel your share.  We do ask 2 week’s notice, so we can process the change before your card charges again.

Try switching to a biweekly share – a bag every other week.

We don’t offer a half-size share, but biweekly amounts to the same amount of food: 

This can be much more manageable for singles or a household that cooks less often.

 

Our produce typically lasts 2 weeks. Going biweekly also saves you on trips /delivery fees.

Yes. It’s the same cost per delivery, and the same up-front billing amount (for 4 week’s worth). But then you get billed every 8 weeks rather than every 4 weeks.  Your initial billing covers 4 deliveries, spanning 8 calendar weeks.  After your 3rd delivery, at about 7 weeks, you’ll be billed for another 4 weeks. 

Who’s your farmer?

Too often we eat a meal and talk about the flavor, or if we got a bargain, or the long line in the grocery store. But what if we talked about, or at least knew, the farmer who produced it?

Meet the Kilpatrick family! Farmer Michael, Savannah, and our three kids, Charlotte, Simon, and baby Kate! We’ve been farming for 17 years and now grow fresh, nutrient-dense vegetables in Carlisle, and can’t wait to share them with you!

What we don’t grow, we source from farmers we trust. We seek out the best local products to give you a great selection of items in our store every week.
