Little River Flower Farm Community Supported Agriculture Shares:
The Freshest Vegetables Possible
Little River Flower Farm is offering Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares in our farm for the 2012 growing season. A CSA share gives you the freshest vegetables possible and unites us, the grower, with you, the consumer. The program also gives you the chance for a close-up view of a working Maine farm while allowing us to better plan for the growing season with the necessary up-front investment to purchase the seeds and other supplies.
Our list of vegetables include lettuce, mesculin, swiss chard, spinach, kale, boc choy, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, radishes, peppers, string beans, dry beans, carrots, summer and winter squashes, beets, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, peas, potatoes, basil, parsley, cilantro, dill, leeks, scallions, garlic and more.
