I have written often about our subscription to Two Small Farms, a vegetable Community Supported Agriculture program from two farms in Hollister and Watsonville, High Ground Organics and Mariquita Farms. For the price of the subscription, about $22 a week, we receive a box of fresh, organic, locally-grown vegetables, ready to eat.
Last fall, we also decided to sign up for a fruit CSA, from Frog Hollow Farms. I only knew about Frog Hollow through reputation – great stone fruits, organic and local. Since joining this CSA, we have enjoyed plums, pears, apples, oranges, avocados, pomegranates, kumquats, tomatoes, and now, cherries!
As the main growing season for Frog Hollow Farms begins to unfold, I look forward to peaches, nectarines, plums and apricots. Because fruit in our house is consumed quickly, often fresh and without a recipe, I rarely post our plan for eating our weekly box. Last week, we received Avocados, Tomatoes, Oranges and Cherries. The cherries were gobbled up almost immediately, and I have been using the other items for salads and snacks this week.
Depending on what CSA membership plan is chosen, subscribers can save 10-30% compared to grocery store prices for Frog Hollow fruit. For more details, visit the Frog Hollow Farms CSA information page.
