The Unitarian Universalist Church of Canandaigua (UUCC) Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) provides just that!
Every Monday for 24 weeks from May 23 through October 31, UUCC CSA members pick up a wide assortment of home grown organically certified seasonal fruits and vegetables at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 3024 Cooley Rd in Canandaigua .
Share contents change each week. There is always something different in the share. Small and Large shares are a mix of pre-packed staples like cooking greens, salad greens, roots, potatoes, and seasonal favorites like strawberries and tomatoes.
Through-out the season, a market table will be set up at distribution for members to choose several items to supplement their basic share. The market table will have 10-25 different vegetables and fruits ranging from staples like carrots and potatoes, to specialty vegetables and fruits, and vegetables which people either love or hate.
Large shares usually include 8-12 different fruits and vegetables. Small shares have 6-8 items. A micro-share is 4 choices from the market table (maximum of 2 fruit choices).
A large share works well for a family or a couple who cook almost every night. A small share is often best for a single person or a couple. A micro-share is good for a single person who isn’t always home for a meal or doesn’t have a lot of time for cooking.
Fresh cut herbs and hot peppers are also available during the season on a “take what you can use” basis.
Meat, eggs and honey: The UUCC CSA works with several other local farms to offer pork, beef, poultry, eggs, and honey on an extra cost basis to our members.
Work Option: CSA members who volunteer to work on the farm for at least 12 hours will receive a $50 rebate at the end of the season.
Share Pick-up: Mondays from 5:15 to 7:00 at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 3024 Cooley Rd. in Canandaigua. After hours pick up at the church or pick up at the farm can also be arranged.
