I know many of us are concerned about our food system and prefer to shop locally.
I recently found out about a local and very affordable CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program: Two Crones Farms & Nursery, located in south Vallejo. Can't get any more local, right?
Owned and operated by Shelee and Kathi, Two Crones Farm is a small ¼ acre homestead, which they’ve lovingly and painstakingly developed into CSA program. I couldn't be more excited! I have done other CSA's for the last couple of years, but I am THRILLED to have found them!
How it Works: They pick and pack the fruit and vegetable boxes fresh that morning, and you have two choices of how you’d like to get your box: pick up or delivery. Please note that each week’s offerings will vary due to seasonal patterns and what is available, and that boxes may not be available each week.
1) Pick Up - $20.00 per box.
2) Delivered to your home - $25.00 per box; includes a delivery fee of $5.00. They deliver to Vallejo, American Canyon, and Benicia. They’ll email you a confirmation and a PayPal invoice to prepay. Delivery to your home is around noon on Thursday's. Please leave a cooler out, and let them know if you have a good shady spot on your porch or other area you'd like for them to leave your box.
To order: Please contact them no later than 6pm Wednesday's, if you would like a box since they harvest first light Thursday morning. If you have any questions or for more info, call Shelee at (707) 812-0546 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
