The Small Family Salad & Side Dish CSA
Runs 12 Weeks, May-August.
Sign up by March 31 to receive at least $400 of fresh produce for just $350, a nearly 15% savings! Signups after March 31 will cost $400.
Please note: Lancaster city residents choosing home delivery pay an additional one-time delivery fee of $50
Each week, you and your family will receive an assortment of Lancaster’s freshest seasonal ingredients that can be easily assembled into a variety of healthy salads and side dishes throughout the week. In addition to receiving a regular delivery of our very own spring mix and fixings for summer salads such as cherry tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, sweet baby turnips and carrots, you will receive additional greens, veggies and fruits that can be transformed into tasty gourmet salads and side dishes with minimal effort.
By providing two or three recipes each week and the vast majority of the ingredients that these recipes call for, your grocery shopping and meal prep should be simplified. In order to make the recipes included in a typical week, you may only need to buy (or have on hand already) oil, vinegar, or perhaps some meat or cheese should you choose to include those ingredients. You will receive an email no less than two days prior to receiving each box which will include a list of produce you will receive along with featured recipes that allow you to plan your meals with those ingredients. You will also receive a very short “need to have on hand” list of ingredients called for by the recipes but not included in your CSA box.
Most of the products in our shares will be seasonal chemical-free produce coming directly from our farm. Produce that is called for by the recipes but not grown on our farm will be procured from other local organic farms and vendors that we partner with, and we will inform you on who we have partnered with each week. The few non-organic items included during the season are limited to products that are difficult to find from local organic growers, such as tree nuts, or other minimally-processed items, such as croutons or flat-bread pizza crusts made by local bakeries. By supplementing our own produce with products from other local businesses, your support is being spread more widely throughout our community!

Few things bring Jason more joy than sharing the highest quality produce with home cooks, chefs and small grocers in Lancaster County. As an avid cook, he carefully selects varieties that are known for their superior flavor and aesthetic appeal, and grows them in a way that nurtures the health of the land from which they are harvested.
James is a recent geology PhD graduate who loves being outside and digging in the dirt. Growing up James didn't like eating vegetables, but once he got over his green bean phobia he started growing veggies on his balcony during grad school. He is excited to help The Productive Peasant Farm Co. in its new location to bring great organic produce to Lancaster County and beyond!
