About the Veggie/Herb Share:

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  It is a growing movement of health conscious consumers who purchase a share of produce that is grown by a local farmer.  The share is purchased in the spring and as produce comes into season,  CSA members receive a share of what is grown.  It is distributed at centrally-located pick-up points for convenience and also to reduce the carbon foot print.

 

What are the benefits of becoming a CSA Member?

  • Enjoy locally grown produce that has not been trucked in from 1000s of miles

  • Convenient for your lifestyle

  • Fresh picked and in season so that you get it at peak nutritional value

  • Reduce the carbon foot print as you are joining with other CSA members for centrally-located pick-up points

  • You are supporting local farmers and the Colorado economy

 

How is Lora’s Nourishing Produce grown?

Our mission is to produce nutrient-dense, health-building produce, thus the name: Lora’s Nourishing Produce.  We do not use herbicides, pesticides, or anything else that would disturb the natural balance of how food is supposed to be grown.  To learn more, check out Our Story Page

 

When will I begin to receive produce?

You will start receiving the veggie share the middle of June.  There will be one week of no delivery mid-summer.  We go through the second to last week in October for a total 18 weeks of tasty farm fresh produce!

 

How much produce do I get with a Veggie CSA share?

You will start off with leafy greens, sugar snap peas, micro greens and garlic scapes.  As the season progresses, the variety and amount increases as crops mature and are available.  Our goal is to provide you variety and in quantities for 2-3 adults or 2 adults and 2 younger children.  Some households, with diets that are more plant-based than the average, can opt to purchase 2 shares to fit their needs.  Check out our YouTube video above to see what past CSA harvests have looked like.

 

Do you offer half-shares?

At this time, I do not have half shares available.  You can e-mail me your name and the location that you are interested in and I can see if I can match you up with another person that is looking to split a share.  The best way is to ask a friend if they want to split it with you.  I do not recommend splitting a share though unless you are single as the portions sometimes are hard to split between two families.  My goal is to provide you with more variety than with large amounts of a few items and in proportions that I would use myself.

About Our Organic Fruit Share:

The Colorado Organic Fruit Share is very popular and the fruit is bursting with color and overflowing with flavor.  We gather our fruit from some of the most well known organic orchards on Colorado's Western Slope, including but not limited to First Fruits Orchards, Ela Family Farms, and Morton's Orchards

 

Here are the answers to our most frequently asked questions:


How much fruit do I get in a share?

Usually around 2.5 - 3 lbs. of one kind of fruit per week depending on what is ripe for harvest.  The CSA Fruit Share season is 14 - 16 weeks of delicious sweetness!  The weeks may or may not be consecutive depending on when the crop is ripe.  Picking fruit at it's optimal harvest time means the sugar content and nutrition is at it's best. That is one reason why home grown and local produce tastes so yummy since it was not picked earlier than "ripe" for shipping reasons.

 

  • Cherries (Bing and Rainer)

  • Apricots

  • Plums

  • Peaches

  • Nectarines

  • Pears

  • Apples

 

(Due to the nature of weather and the possibility of crop failure, there may be a fruit that is unavailable.  In that case, we would add the equivalent of another fruit to take it's place. )

Watermelons, melons, and tomatoes will stay with the Veggie/Herb CSA Share.  The Fruit Share is strictly Colorado fruit from Organic Western Slope Orchards.

 

When will I begin to receive produce?

Cherries are the first fruit crop and are usually ready the end of June depending on weather.  Apples and pears are the last fruit crop and go into October.
