Apr 30, 2016 07:55PM
Oasis at Bird-in-Hand’s summer community supported agriculture (CSA) shares begin the week of May 10. Oasis offers a “try-it-to-see-if-you-like-it” box of produce for $14, available that week. Sign-up can occur anytime during the summer season, and pick-up points are located throughout Lancaster County.
The large box feeds four to six people, has 10 to 12 items in it, and costs $725 for the season, or $28 per week. The small box feeds two to four people, has six to nine items in it and costs $450 for the season, or $18 per week. CSA shares include asparagus, radishes, spinach, strawberries, scallions, beans, peppers, raspberries, sweet corn, carrots, eggplants, lettuce, assorted greens, zucchini and other seasonal vegetables.
“The Oasis CSA program makes it possible for busy families to be a direct extension of the farm,” shares Dale Stoltzfus, General Manager. “When a subscriber to an Oasis CSA sits down to eat this kind of food, they are eating the same things the farmer and his family are eating—seasonal, local, organically grown produce. For those concerned about good health and good taste, there is nothing better than fresh, ripe and local.”
