Summer/Fall Veggie Boxes

OUR WEEKLY VEGGIE BOXES

Our weekly vegetable and fruit boxes are the core of what we offer from the farm.  These boxes are delivered to several central locations in the Moncton, Fredericton, Woodstock, Florenceviile, and Grand Falls areas.  

A full box is designed to provide a week's worth of vegetables for a family of four or for two veggie lovers.  A half box designed for a family of two.  Summer boxes run weekly for 20 weeks from the third week of June to the first week of November.  

These boxes vary each week according to what is growing at that time.  We supply a swap box at the point of pick up from which a customer may swap one vegetable for another that they like better.  This helps prevent you getting stuck with veggies you may not like or need.

The vegetables, fruit, and berries are organically grown here on our farm except in a rare case where we might need to source other local organic vegetables to cover a shortage.

Here are a few of the regular comments we get on the veggie boxes.

"It is like getting a Christmas box every week"

"Our kids look forward to the veggies coming every week"

"I never get to eat the cherry tomatoes because the kids get to them first"

"I really enjoy having the challenge of using everything in the box each week"

"I've learned to cook with new vegetables I wouldn't have tried and we really enjoy them"

"Your carrots are amazing"

"Your veggies taste like they did when I was a kid" - usually an older person makes this comment.

"You are making our family healthy!"

We grow about 50 types of vegetables with particular emphasis on the mainstays.  Our boxes include a combination of berries and vegetables - almost all organic!  Everything we grow is certified organic and we grow almost all that is in the boxes. Blueberries are one exception where we pick from a patch we are managing for another couple.

You can expect to get 7-10 or more items each week based on what is available in the season. We have a swap box located at each pick up location which allows you to swap an item you don't like for one you do.  This allows you some customization while allowing us the ability to pack all the boxes the same for a given week.

Over the course of the season, you can expect to get string beans, lettuce, salad mix, beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, corn, cucumbers, garlic, your choice of herbs, melons, greens, onions, peas, sweet peppers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, radishes, spinach, squash, and tomatoes.  These will come in season as they are ready for harvest.  We also send raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries in season.

We have a retired bus that we have converted into our mobile pick up station which we can park in a central location and our customers can come to the bus to get their box and buy any extras we may have on hand.  

When you sign up, you are signing up to take a box every week for the 20 week period.  If you are going to be away during this time, feel free to have a friend pick up your box for you.  As much as possible, the equivalent value of any boxes that are not picked up are donated to the food bank or to families in need.

PICK UP LOCATIONS:

We have 3 pick up locations in Fredericton, and three in Moncton plus one in Sackville, Woodstock, Florenceville, and Grand Falls in addition to picking up at our farm. 

We park our delivery bus at two of the locations in Fredericton which allows us to offer a "pack your own" box.  The other locations have standard pre-packed boxes along with a swap box allowing you to swap out an item you may not like for something you would prefer.

Here are a number of photos of full (4 person) boxes from our summer program.  A half box generally contains half the portion size as seen in these photos.

 

Here is a photo of an early season box in early July.  The first boxes have fewer items but most people are still excited to get them since they contain the first, berries, greens and produce of the season.  

 

 

 

This is a late July Box.  As you can see there is a great assortment of veggies by this time of year.

 

 

 

This is an August box.  Organic sweet corn is probably the most popular vegetable we grow.  Customers frequently tell us they have never tasted corn that tastes so delicious!

 

 

Here is a September box.  Melons and Cantaloupe are also real favourites of the season.  Many New Brunswickers who come to our stand don't think much of melons or watermelon until they've tried one.  They quickly become repeat customers and now come specially for them.  Melons grown right here are so much better than ones grown half way around the world and brought in by truck.

 

This is a picture of an October box.  There are lots of great fall vegetables that get sweeter and tastier as the weather gets cold.  The sap of the plants gets thicker, sweeter, and more nutritious in the cold which increases their ability to store and enhances their flavour.
