We listed an example of our shares based on the produce we're contracting with farmers to grow for us this year. Each year our shares look a little bit different; as with any CSA, mother nature dictates whether we have more or less of a certain vegetable or berry.
Each item is a package of individually quick frozen (IQF) or frozen pureed fruits or vegetables. The IQF process freezes each kernel of corn, each green bean, which not only maximizes flavor, but allows you to use what you need, and put the rest of the package back in the freezer. We freeze at the peak of freshness, often hours after the farmer's harvest. That is why our food is so fresh and delicious!
