Vegetables by DIG
We created the Dig Acres Farm Box for anyone who’s ever longed to join a CSA, but felt intimidated by the commitment. Consider it a farm share for beginners. Like a standard CSA, it features a rotating selection of local vegetables that are harvested to order. But, with only four varieties per box, it’s smaller, making it manageable for the time-strapped, the budget-minded, and the space-deprived.
Each box comes with two recipes for simple vegetable dishes that don’t require fancy ingredients or equipment to prepare. We want to make it easy for you. Seasonal produce, grown close to home and harvested at its peak, doesn’t need much. With a few basic cooking tips, salt, and olive oil, anyone can fall in love with vegetables.
