The GSF farmshare is enough vegetables for 1-4 people, depending how many meals they eat at home. For example, a single person who eats at least 5 meals a week prepared at home can usually use all the vegetables in the bag each week. A family of 4, who eat 2 meals at home, can use the contents of the bag in a week. The share isn’t intended to supply all the vegetables for a family who regularly eat most of their meals at home, but will be a great start!
Contents of the CSA Bags
We strive for a good mixture of seasonal vegetables. The availability of items shifts through the seasons. Some of the items include:
Peppers of all sorts in October/November, Sweet Potatoes, Winter Squashes, Pumpkins, Melons, Head Lettuces, Salad mix, Arugula, Asian Braising Greens, Bok Choy, Microgreens, including Sunflower shoots, Broccoli micros, Pea Shoots, Radish micros, Baby Ginger, Turmeric, Garlic, Spinach, Kale, Chard, Scallions, Leeks, Carrots, Beets, Oyster Mushrooms, Broccoli, Cabbage, Radishes, Rutabagas, Salad Turnips and Collards. We’re trialing some new crops in 2022, so this list will likely include a few fun additions!
The 2022-2023 CSA Season has 18 scheduled pick ups and begins the first full week of October 2022 (Oct. 5th and 6th), and goes through April 2023. The October, November, and December pick ups will be weekly, skipping Thanksgiving week and going until December 14th/15th. The January, February, March and April pick ups will be every other week and will be determined in December when we see how the vegetables look. Inclement weather could change the pick up schedule. We keep you informed of dates!
Pick Up Sites And Days
Wednesday pick ups are in Chapel Hill at Church of the Holy Family at 200 Hayes Rd. The bags will be delivered to the screened porch of the Parish House at 4:30 pm and members can swing by any time to get their bags.
Thursday pick ups are at the Pittsboro Farmers Market at Mainstreet Station from 3-6 pm. Please note the Pittsboro Farmers Market will be moving (hopefully in June 2022!) to The Plant Eco-Industrial Park located at 220 Lorax Lane, Pittsboro. This location, just 1.5 miles from the current location, will offer better parking and more shopping and gathering opportunities!

Pay It Forward Fund
We have reserved 25% of the CSA shares for members who receive shares paid in part from donations to our Pay It Forward Fund. These members will pay $10 weekly, and can use SNAP/EBT benefits if they desire.
We welcome donations by check or credit/debit card to our Pay It Forward Fund to help sponsor our neighbors with fewer financial resources. Simply add your donation into your check. Thanks!
