Why would your family want to join The Path Farm’s Co-op? Mainly for the freshest vegetables you can buy and to support our community. Most vegetables are harvested within 24 hours of the time you receive them. That means they have less time to lose their flavor and nutritional value. Perhaps for health reasons, no pesticides or preservatives being sprayed on your food is attractive to you. The Path Farm grows naturally using environment-friendly resources– like worm castings, river muck and other nutrient-rich resources to grow tasty, nutritious vegetables.
Supporting The Path’s Farm Co-op means you are helping the men and women at The Path shelter improve their lifestyles. The Path grows, harvests and prepares your co-op basket. All you have to do is pick it up and enjoy.
The vegetables you receive from The Path’s farm will vary in size and appearance during the season, looking and tasting similar to those you would grow in your own home garden. The Path raises vegetables that grow best in this area during the growing seasons, approximately six months– April through the end of September for summer veggies, and October-March for winter veggies. Weather (rain, cold, heat, drought and other seasonal factors) affect a vegetable’s availability so quantity and variety can vary from week to week.
Members receive a basket of locally-grown vegetables on a weekly basis according to whatever is ready for harvest that week. Occasionally, The Path has been able to offer “U Pick It” days: an opportunity for co-op members to pick their own vegetables. The health benefits are well worth the risk!
