How much food is it?
Each box provides a selection of 10-13 items of produce. The produce will be a variety of items we have in season on any given week, and the box will weigh between 8 and 15 pounds (depending on the season, you may have a lot of light items such as greens or many heavy items like tomatoes and melons).
We estimate that receiving one box weekly is a good amount of produce for a family of four who regularly cook meals and eat at home, though only you can determine what works best for your eating habits. If you are vegetarian or always eat at home, a weekly box may work for a single person or smaller family. If you aren't used to cooking with a lot of produce and/or eat many meals from restaurants, you may decide that an every-other week delivery schedule is best for you.
It is simple to change you from a weekly schedule to an every-other week schedule (or vice versa), so don't be too worried! It may take a couple of weeks to sort out, and we will do all we can to help you. You can see what we are sending our members this week to give you a sense of a typical week of produce. This often helps new members get a sense of what they can expect. Reading the most recent Eatwell Farm News posting will allow you to see what kind of support we give our members.
