Path Valley Veggie Boxes for August 10–13

The Medium Veggie Box is for two-to-three veggie lovers who enjoy having vegetables throughout the week. Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first.

Contents for August 10–13:

  • 2 sweet peppers, either Corno di Toros or Bells
  • 2 onions: red, white or yellow
  • 1 pound of beans
  • 1 half pint of blackberries or a few peaches
  • 1 European cucumber or 2 slicers
  • 1 pound of small mix or Brad's Atomic tomatoes
  • 2 heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of carrots
  • 1 bunch of herbs

Note: Occasionally the farm will make harvest substitutions depending on what is at peak.

The Happy Family Veggie Box is delightful for a larger family, or four voracious vegetable-centric eaters. Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first.

Note that though it’s rare, occasionally the farm will make substitutions when they run out of certain vegetables.
