What is a CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Typically, a farm sells shares prior to a season and members then get a share of the crops produced for their investment. This investment goes towards normal operating costs like seed and supplies for the year. Our ValleyBox follows those same lines, but just a little different. Our ValleyBox is packed with half fruit and half veggies each week, similar to other food co-op baskets, but fresher and local! A portion of the money for your membership is saved and goes towards the fruit that comes in our ValleyBox. Instead of just what the farm produces, you will get delicious fruit in your ValleyBox every week. It doesn't get much sweeter than that!
When you receive your ValleyBox, your produce will be picked often times within 24 hours of delivery, while fruits are sourced within the week and kept refrigerated at the perfect temperature so they arrive to you juicy and flavorful at the peak of ripeness. The program begins in early July and runs for 14 weeks, with your final box being the second week of October.
Early in the season you can expect things like greens, radishes, beets, summer squash, scallions, cherries, and apricots. Through the middle of the season, expect to find some of the things above, plus others like sweet corn, cucumbers, summer squash, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, eggplant, green beans, peaches, pears, and Flathead cherries. Toward the end of the season, your box could be filled with some of the above plus potatoes, onions, chiles, cauliflower, cabbage, winter squash, pumpkins, plums, apples, and berries. Selection changes each week. Weekly boxes contain about 6-8 items, average about 10-15 lbs, and have a total value of at least $30 per week.
Boxes contain a variety of our own locally grown vegetables. Sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, onions, potatoes, squash, cucumbers, and so much more! What we don't grow or don't have available we will source from other local and regional producers to fill your ValleyBox with a variety of fresh produce you're sure to love. We believe the closer your food is to the source, the better it will taste!
We select only the best tree ripened fruit from neighboring states of Colorado, Utah, Montana, and Idaho to bring you a delicious variety of peaches, cherries, berries of all sorts, pears, plums, apples, and more! Depending on availability, we may open our sourcing to additional states to guarantee a good variety in members' boxes. Sweet Montana cherries. Juicy Palisade peaches. Flavorful Oregon berries. Occasionally you can even find local fruit like raspberries in your ValleyBox!
Your ValleyBox Membership also comes with our ValleyFresh Buyer's Club membership. This gets you exclusive member-only discounts on full cases of fruit or veggies. On top of that, you will have access to other occasional add-ons from other local producers each week. You'll also get 10% off your purchase of any of our regular priced items throughout the season at your local farmers markets. This is a great deal for home canners, large families, or those who just love fresh produce!
You can conveniently pick up your weekly ValleyBox at one of our drop locations or the farmers markets. We have pickup locations in Riverton, Lander, Dubois, Kinnear, and Casper.
