Produce Box Program Starting June

**Full for June, please contact us if you would like to be on the waiting list for July**

Northend Farm is starting a Produce Box Program in June! We’re very excited about this and can’t wait to get going! It’s designed a little differently than a typical CSA, and we hope you’ll enjoy this opportunity.

+Each ‘Run’ will be 4 weeks long. This means you won’t have to commit or pay for a long CSA, but still get the benefits of a produce box. We hope to continuously do these until fall, starting June.

+$100 total, $25 deposit will be required no later than a week before the start date with remaining $75 due at first pick up.

+Boxes will always be approximately 10-15% higher value than you pay for.

+Participants in the Produce Box program will get a special 10% off discount card on produce in the markets.

+Boxes will always be seasonally grown produce from Northend Farm.

+You will be required to pick up your box every Wednesday for the time frame you have paid for, within a certain time frame. (To be determined)

The First Produce Box will start Wednesday, June 4th and end June 25th. There are a limited number of spots available and it will be first come, first serve, $25 deposit required to hold your spot.
