Read on below for all the details on this years Winter-Stock-Up-Share from John (what veggies are included, the weight, the price, etc). If you would like to receive this years Winter-Stock-Up-Share:

We made our target by the April 15 deadline and are up and running for the 2013 season. Awesome.
An e-mail with detailed information on the FARM VISIT (June 8th), our CSA Newark 2013 initial MEET-N’-GREET (May 31st) and more just went out to all members, and we can not wait for the veggie deliveries to start (June 12th).
We still accept additional members for the season. If you are interested to join or if you have questions, drop an e-mail to eve at csanewark dot com or to stephanie at csanewark dot com.
I see garlic scapes in our near future – this season will rock!

If you would like to get a half share, but do not know who to split it with: let us hook you up! Just send an e-mail to eve at csanewark dot com and we will match you with others looking for a veggie-share-partner as we hear from them.
If you would like to split a share, please also keep the following in mind: Continue reading
