We offer a seasonal bag of produce bi-weekly year-round. Many folks take advantage of the opportunity to support local agriculture, get what is truly in season and good tasting. A regular delivery ensures that you and your family are cooking and eating fresh produce full of nutrition and life on a constant basis. Knowing where your food comes from and how it is handled, what care goes into growing it and the connection gained from such knowledge is invaluable in today’s “fast food culture”.
As farmers for over 25 years we know quality, variety and seasonality like the back of our hands. Our growing methods, care of the land and soil, saving seed and selecting the tastiest of varieties has nurtured a “foodie” revival that many can’t live without.
We have heard from many subscribers that getting their CSA bag of produce is the highlight of the week and delightfully reminds them of opening up a present, excited to see what gems are hidden inside. To sum it up, a member wrote: “Since getting vegetables and fruit from Outer Aisle I have changed the way I choose my weekly menus. I used to select recipes then go to the store for ingredients. Now I get the ingredients and plan my meals according to what is fresh, seasonal and local. This has allowed me to widen the scope of my culinary experience and to incorporate different elements that I may not have used in the past.”
We have come to realize over the years that not every lifestyle is suited to getting a bag of produce and our busy lives sometimes prevent us from spending time in the kitchen cooking and no one likes to see things go to waste. We believe that even the busiest of lifestyles allows for at least one or two evenings a week spent in the kitchen cooking. Cooking with a seasonal array of fresh produce and venturing into the unknown with the produce leading the way is deeply rewarding and even fun! So if you are up for the challenge, give it a go – our no obligation subscription may just get you doing a little more cooking and that’s a good thing!

FLEXIBILITY BUILT IN:
We send out an email on Monday night/Tuesday morning letting you know what’s in your bag this week as well as substitution items. We realize that not everyone likes all vegetables, or at times one gets overloaded so we’ve created a way in which you can send back an email requesting we switch out an item for you. In the email you’ll also see recipes as well as an Add-On list of available produce items that may or may not be in your bag this week. And again, simply reply to the email and let us know what you’d like added on, we’ll complete the order and charge your account. Simple and convenient!
