Evans Knob's products can be purchased at the Morgantown Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, every Saturday during the summer and a modified schedule during the winter months. You can also become a member of our CSA, it’s an 18 week subscription during the height of the season. You’ll receive a share of the Tuesday harvest delivered to two convenient locations in Morgantown, or you may pick up at the farm.
Planning ahead? Visit our online store to purchase you favorite Evans Knob products and pick up at either the farmer's market or right on the farm!
We are planning the CSA deliveries to go for 18 weeks for the 2017 season. The projected first delivery date is June 6th and the last October 3rd. As a "shareholder" you will receive a basket of fresh yummy produce each week. Much of the harvesting is done on the day of delivery. You can't get much fresher than that. Whatever is harvested that day will be divided up between the number of shareholders that will be picking up that day. It is vitally important that you let us know 24 hours in advance if you will not be able to make the pick up. That will ensure that nothing goes to waste.
You need to understand that even though we are planning on growing certain crops, unforeseen disasters do happen. For instance an early cold snap, drought, or bugs can wipe out nearly an entire crop for the season. While we take every possible precaution to prevent this, mother nature is out of our control. Many times she will make up for one crop failure with a truly abundant harvest elsewhere. Being a shareholder means accepting the risk and supporting us as your farmers.
We offer half shares as well as full shares. Whole shares pick up every week, while half shares pick up every other week. We will set up a schedule just before the deliveries begin. We will meet on Tuesdays at Chestnut Ridge Church, in Cheat Lake. We are grateful to be teaming up with Woofs Canine at 1137 Van Voorhis Rd., Suites 26 & 27, Morgantown, again this year for our second delivery site. That should make it a little easier for you folks working at NIOSH, Mylan and Ruby Hospital. We would consider doing deliveries to these sites if enough employees would be interested to make it worth our while to add the site to our delivery route.
You will need to bring your own shopping bags, or coolers to the delivery site, we will have everything already weighed out for you and packaged. Farmer Kathy or someone from Evans Knob will guide you through what we have that day, and what your share is.
This year we are holding our CSA to 30 shares. The slots are open first to returning shareholders, and any empty spaces will then be filled on a first come first serve basis. You will need to fill out the questionnaire and registration and return it with a deposit of $100. The first payment is due by the same day the following month. The prices for the 2016 season are $545 for a full share and $300.00 for a half share. The balance will be due April 15th. We will not accept any new shareholders after May 1st.
We often share recipes from other shareholders and from customers at the Farmers Market. We like to offer unusual veggies, some have become favorites of our shareholders. They often tell us that had we not included it in the share, they likely would not have tried it. The recipes come in handy for those.
Evans Knob also offers a meat share. The animals are humanely raised without growth hormones or antibiotics. While we do not worship the animals, we respect the sacrifice that they are making so that we might benefit. They are free range animals with happy lives until the day of processing.
Meat shares include; 30 pounds of whole chickens, one 15 pound turkey, 18 pounds of lamb, one split quarter of pork, approximately 30 pounds, and two rabbits.
Even after reading this information, I am sure you will have more questions. Please feel free to contact us, we would love to hear from you. For those of you ready to move forward with the CSA subscription, download our: CSA Registration Form
