CSA Share Comparisons

Jersey Fresh produce, locally grown right on our South Brunswick farm! 017 Our CSA produce is picked the day you pick it up – any fresher, and it would still be growing!!

There is no rhyme or reason to what you will receive in your CSA basket each week. What is in season and in abundance at the farm is what you will receive. The weather plays a big role in what crops are available, and when they are available to harvest. A drought can kill crops, but so can excessive rains. Cool nights, or warm ones depending on the crop, can slow or hasten readiness & ripening. No matter what the weather has been, or how the crops have grown, the CSA shares at VonThun Farms have always been plentiful.
