Vals Veggies CSA
Join our CSA program and support local agriculture while eating the freshest, tastiest veggies.
You pay up front for a season of produce and we in turn supply you with 20 weeks of the best vegetables. Our season this year will start June 12 for Pendleton, June 13 for La Grande , June 14 for Baker City and end October 23, 24 and 25, 2017
This allows you to connect directly with the source of your food and create a truly sustainable local food system.
For the eater, you get to start with the first fresh greens of spring, baby beets, young crisp green onions, and peas and on to midsummer with the luscious heirloom tomatoes and juicy corn on the cob, and on into fall with fresh taters, winter squash, and pumpkins. Every week there will be from 6 to 18 different items in your box depending on what is ripe in the garden. Not only do you get the freshest vegetables that were picked just that morning but you are helping to keep your local economy thriving. An example is our full share box valued at over $800 or $40 per week of vegetables and your cost is $700
For us, the growers, we benefit by getting the money at the time of year we need it most, to buy seed and pay our employees. We also can grow a lot more varieties and try new things each year. This year we will have over 100 varieties of tomatoes and over 60 varieties of winter squash and pumpkins.
This year we are offering 3 different sizes to better meet the needs of our members. A full size share will feed 4 Adults or a family, a half share will feed 2 Adults or a small family, a single is for 1 Adult. We start out with the cool weather crops and increase the varieties as they ripen. You get a wide assortment of fresh, tasty, local vegetables, all grown with no chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers.

We are offering two different Fruit Shares this year. Certified Organic from Eagle Creek Orchards and conventionally grown from Walla Walla and Yakima Valleys in Washington.
There is no refund for fruit shares because we purchase them before the season started, that is why there is a closing date, we have to tell the orchard how many shares we need.

Cancelation: All cases are handled on a case by case basis. We try very hard to meet the needs of all members, people move, or people have issues that come up unexpectedly we can understand.
