The Veggie Box is a form of Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) in which people like you help provide financial support at the beginning of the farming season when I incur the bulk of my expenses buying seeds, equipment, tools, and more. In return, you receive supremely fresh, local veggies and become part of a community of people invested in sustaining a small, local business and woman-run farm. It's also a unique opportunity to get more acquainted with your food, know who and where it comes from, and learn how eating with the seasons impacts your body.
As a member, each week you receive:
a delicious, just-harvested box of vibrant veggies with a variety of 4-10 items
access to local, monthly add-ons that will vary by season, including: honey, flowers, wreaths, handmade herbal products, etc.
a weekly newsletter with updates from the farm, a list of what's in the box, and tips for how to best utilize your loot
an invitation to a summer Open House at the farm with a tour, picnic, and fun activities
The Veggie Box runs for 18 weeks from late June to late October. Pick up will be available on Tuesday evenings from pick up sites in:
North Beacon Hill @ The Well on Beacon (Beacon Ave S and S Stevens St)

How to Purchase
I prefer people pay by check to avoid credit card processing fees. To pay with check, please fill out this online form and mail a check made out to Kamayan Farm. Please note: your spot will only be secured upon payment. Members can also purchase a veggie box share with a credit card online here. There is an option to pay for your share in two equal installments through the mailed application. The first payment is due with your initial application. The second payment is due by July 15, 2017.
If you're interested in making a veggie box donation or purchasing a box as a gift for someone else, please contact me.
