These veggies will fill the bulk of the vegetable portion for the first 5-6 weeks of the of the share.
In March/early-April greenhouse delicacies such as mesclun, baby pac choi, Asian greens, kale and chard burst onto the scene followed by bunched beets, salad turnips, Napa cabbage, scallions, mini onions. May & early June bring head lettuce, cucumbers, baby fennel, spinach, radishes and more!

Our CSA Share Types
Localvore Share This is our most popular share. It's designed to fill your fridge and pantry with enough vegetables and local staples to cook healthy and well each week. We take care each week to combine vegetables with local items that work well together so that you have ingredients that go together in recipes. And then we provide the recipes too! Price is $782 for 17 weeks.
Veggie Only Share provides a great (8-10 item) weekly selection of seasonal organic vegetables from Pete's Greens. price is $493 for 17 weeks worth of local, organic vegetables.
Small Veggie Only Share provides a smaller (5-6 item) weekly selection of seasonal organic vegetables from Pete's Greens. Spring salad greens are challenging to growIn the early weeks of the Spring Share, this share type may not get greens as often as the larger shares get them. Salad greens are the most difficult item to grow and the most precious in Jan/Feb/Mar. The larger shares will get priority for these items in the early weeks of the share, though we will do our best to provide them to all. In the current Fall/Winter share the small share has received them each week the large share has and it is our goal to keep up the trend. The price is $374 for 17 weeks* worth of local, organic vegetables.
Pete's Pantry Share provides the localvore items but not the vegetables. This share type is for folks who are splitting a vegetable share, but both parties want their own localvore products. Or for folks who want to add the localvore portion to the Small Veggie Share above. Price $289 for 17 weeks.
Meat Share provides a variety of pastured, local and often organic meats. The meat share is delivered once a month and may include our own Pete's Pastured Pork and Chicken as well as pastured meats, sausages, kielbasa, steaks, hams and more from our neighbors here in Vermont. The price is $200 for four monthly deliveries - Mar, Apr, May, Jun.
