Crisp, refreshing, and healthy for the body, the physical benefits of eating fresh vegetables far outweigh listening to their sassy backtalk. Silence insolent arugula with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one sample box of organic vegetables delivered from Farm Share Ltd. (a $50 value). Farm Share can only deliver to 24-hour-doorman buildings or private homes, but deliveries to non-doorman buildings may be discussed ahead of time via email. Click here for Farm Share Ltd.’s delivery areas.
Farm Share Ltd. cultivates community-supported agriculture (CSA), an innovative approach to support local organic farms and receive their share of harvest bounties. A sample box grants a taste of the farmstead, offering up an ever-shifting cornucopia that can feature snap peas, brussels sprouts on the stalk, heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, eggplant, and many other garden goodies. The weekly baskets are designed to feed two humans or one cartoon rabbit, and families or vegetarian couples often order two shares. An online recipe database spawns delicious ideas for what to do with the more exotic freshly minted produce, like purple carrots, yellow fingerling potatoes, or fresh mint.
Those who want to continue receiving produce boxes can take any remaining spots on the CSA list at prorated prices to continue receiving veggie treasure chests until season's end. CSA memberships come in all shapes and sizes, with 20-week seasonal shares for veggies alone ($575), veggies and fruit ($1,010), or veggies and eggs ($725).
