FARM FRESH FALL PRODUCE WITH WIMER’S ORGANICS
Due to the tremendous success of our partnership with Wimer’s Organics during the summer, Warminster Parks & Recreation will continue to bring fresh organic produce to the community though the fall, with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). In a CSA, a farmer offers a number of "shares" which typically consists of a box of produce to the public. Interested consumers purchase a share and in return receive a box of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. We are proud to be the exclusive CSA host site of Bucks County for Wimer’s Organics. Each share box will averages at least 8 items, but will vary as the harvest dictates. A Weekly Share is expected to feed 2-4 people. Weekly Share members receive a 16”x12” box every week. Biweekly Share members receive a 16”x12” box every other week.
Fall Season Share: 12 weeks – September through November
Egg and Yogurt Shares available upon request.
2013 Share Prices:
• Fall Weekly Vegetable Share (12 boxes): $390.00
• Fall Biweekly Vegetable Share (6 Boxes): $200.00
Sign up early to reserve your share. Additional information can be found and shares may be purchased through the WREC or online @ www.wimersorganics.com
Share Pickup will be at the WREC@WCP- Wednesdays between 4:30-8:00 PM
Many factors, especially weather, determine what crops are grown and included in a share. The contents of the boxes are the responsibility of the CSA farmers. Warminster Parks has no control over what kinds of produce are delivered each week and is providing this as a service to area residents by making available a pickup location for the CSA.
