How long is the season?
Our fall CSA season will start in late September and run until December weather permitting. We hope to be able to provide a share every week, but with farming there are no guarantees.
What's in the CSA?
It depends on the season, but you can expect standards such as leafy greens, herbs, and root vegetables, as well as a taste of more exotic produce like turmeric and ginger. Past shares have included locally foraged mushrooms, fresh cut flowers, sorrel, assorted peppers, salad greens, potatoes and sweet potatoes, bok choi, lemon grass and galangal. We recommend that you check out our Instagram account (@spadeandclover) to get an idea of the type of produce we cultivate. All of the produce, herbs, flowers and foraged items are from our fields unless one of our fellow farmer friends with a similar style of cultivation and quality has an excess of a certain crop that we do not have at that time.
Our shares feed one person well and two people comfortably.
How do I purchase my share
We have flexible purchasing options this season. You may order upfront for the whole season (18 weeks), order 6 weeks of shares, or order on a week to week basis. We hope you'll enjoy this flexibility in supporting our farm! We will announce the shares at the beginning of the week on Instagram, Facebook and our website. Orders for weekly shares must be made before midnight on Wednesday to be included in the week's pick-up on Thursday afternoon. Our turmeric and Fili-West eggs are available as stand-alone items OR as add ons to your share.
Where and when do I pick up my share?
Pick-ups are every Thursday at the following locations, you can select your location when you purchase your share.
James Island at the side entrance to the Pour House, 4pm to 9pm

What happens if I forget to pick-up my share?
