Example CSA Shares

Medium Share examples 2015

We’ve compiled the examples below for the Medium Produce Share and Small Produce Share of our Summer Season CSA to give you an idea of how much produce we’ve given in past years and approximately when it was given.  While we plan for the quantities and dates shown on the chart below, actual amounts and dates will vary based on the weather and the season. Each season is different; certain crops may be abundant one year and less in another.  The quantities listed below represent approximate amounts received for the Medium Produce Share and Small Produce Share during an average year. Typically, we plan to include 8 to 12 different items per weekly share.  GEF does not guarantee a minimum amount for any single crop.

The Small Produce Share includes approximately 65-70% of the produce that is in the Medium Produce Share. That means less quantity of certain vegetables than in the Medium Share as well as fewer kinds of vegetables per week.

The Large Produce Share includes approximately 160-170% of the produce that is in the Medium Produce Share. (Large Share example not shown, but is approx. the combined amounts of the Medium and Small Share).

Below:  Example Produce Shares for Medium & Small Shares of our Summer Season CSA:  Each season will vary and differences are based on weather and other factors.
