Announcing the 2015 Spice Acres Farm Share Program!
We’ve always been a big fan of community supported agriculture (CSA) programs and we’ve even written about them in the past, but this is the first year we’ll be offering our own! Hurray!
As a member of the Spice Acres Farm Share program, you’ll eat with the seasons, from crunchy peas and lettuces in the spring, to sweet tomatoes, peppers and melons in the summer, to multi-colored varieties of carrots and winter squashes in the fall.
And trust us: it will taste as amazing as it sounds.
Each week, you’ll receive between five to eight different items in your share. We’ll also include you on a special Spice Acres email list to keep you up to speed on farm news, inspiring recipe ideas, upcoming opportunities to engage with our chefs and farmers, and details on upcoming shares.
