Jersey Fresh & homegrown!! VonThun Farms CSA Program provides its members with 20 weeks of high quality, fresh picked, homegrown produce – grown right here in South Brunswick, by our very own farmers!
When you become a member of VonThun Farms CSA Program, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from the farm – and each week, our staff will package a basket of homegrown produce just for you! CSA members pay for an entire season of produce up front before the season starts and before the crops are ready to be picked. This early payment enables the farmer to plan for the season, purchase seed & fertilizer, make equipment repairs, and more. The early payment provides you the promise of eating fresh, locally grown, healthy food throughout the year!
Full shares typically include 6-8 types of vegetables per week, enough for the average family, & is our BEST VALUE. Half share usually contain 5-6 types of vegetables each week, enough for a small or young family, & is a GREAT VALUE that provides great savings. Personal shares most typically contain 4-5 types of vegetables each week, and is designed for individuals or 2-person families. View a COMPARISON of our various share sizes.
