FarmShare CSA 2018, First Week

Woohoo! It’s the first week of CSA!

On behalf of everyone at Applecrest, we welcome you! Your support is crucial to us and we sincerely hope that you enjoy the bounty you are about to receive for the next 20 weeks of our harvesting season.

Below are all the things you need to know for your first CSA pick up of the season. Be sure to look at the information specific to your pick-up day and location.  If you’re unsure as to which location you selected when enrolling, please refer to the confirmation email you received when you first signed up.  Additional questions?  Always feel free to email us at or call us at 603-926-3721 and ask to speak to a CSA crew member or manager.

The Ins & Outs

Weekly newsletters will inform you of ‘what’s in this week’s share’ in addition to any relevant farm news or important pickup information which is particularly helpful in planning meals and weekly shopping lists.  For your convenience, we’ve made our resources available anywhere, anytime on our online blog. Here you get all the good stuff you need to know about our produce, simply type in ‘Produce Storage’ in the search past articles tab in the News & Events page. Not only will this highlight each crop’s nutritional benefits, it describes how to handle and store your produce.

As a member, you are responsible for reading our communications and utilizing your CSA account to view your account summary, view your next pickup, switch your pickup day, make a payment, check balance, or to place an online order. Your account will look like this (EXAMPLE ONLY your info may be different)

First Day of Pickup

On your first day of pick-up you will receive a custom-made wooden box containing all your freshly picked fruits and veggies. Please DO NOT throw this box away! Each week members are required to bring the empty box back to pick-up and swap it for your new, freshly filled share.  If you forget to bring your box the following week, you will get your share in a cardboard box or plastic bag.

******If you have missed pickup and not made prior arrangements, your share will be donated to a local food bank****** 

We pick our produce in the cool of first morning light, so please plan ahead and DO NOT leave it in the car. We recommend coming prepared with a cooler and ice pack to ensure quality and freshness if you are not planning on returning home after pick-up. We also strongly encourage Workshare members that don’t have access to a refrigerator or a cool place for storage, to bring a cooler to keep your produce in the best state possible.

Don’t forget about our Webstore feature folks! We offer items for you to purchase online in advance from your account or by clicking the link here . You can order items like organic eggs, milk, honey, maple syrup, fresh baked bread, peanut butter, or some tasty cider donuts that’ll be ready and in your share when you arrive at pickup.


What’s in this week’s share?



Head Lettuce

Salad Mix




Strawberries AND Apples!!!

Everyone will also receive a 6 Pack of our homemade Biscuits!


 Each and every week we do our absolute best to get to you the veggies we include in this newsletter so you can plan your week accordingly. Despite all our best plans and intentions, share contents are subject to last minute changes due to weather, field conditions and random acts of mischief by our beloved Mother Nature.  This means some weeks that half and full share compositions might not be identical and we will make up where applicable.

    I thought I picked Tuesday’s at Applecrest for pick up. How do I change it?

  • Elisa colstad says:

    I signed up for Tuesday pickups and noticed it says Friday pickup on the account website and is incorrect.

    Please confirm this will be updated to Tuesday’s and starts this week.
    Friday is not possible for us.

    Thank you

    Hi Elisa!

    That was just an example of what your account may look like, not your exact info. You’re signed up and ready to go for Tuesday!
