SIgn up for the 2018 season is open
The D.U.G. Salad Subscription is a delicious way to eat salads with fresh, locally grown, seasonal, and nutrient dense produce in a convenient manner. The Salad Subscription is evolved from a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model. Purchasing a subscription provides you with weekly shares of farm fresh goodies focusing on items you would use in salads.
The Full Plate option will provide roughly 5 full sized salads. This is a ideal for someone who packs a salad for lunch, or eats a salad with every dinner.
The Half Plate option will provide 3-4 full sized salads. This size is ideal for you if you if you like to pack a salad for lunch or eat salad with some dinner but also prefer to dine out a few nights a week.
*All the contents are cleaned vegetables in their raw state. This is a service for people who want to craft their own salads (this is not a prepared meal subscription.) All produce will be washed but we request that you rinse your veggies before you consume them.

- Greens: Spring Mix, Spicy Mix, Autumn Blend, Spinach, Lettuce varieties, Head Lettuce, Arugula, Mustard Greens, Kale & Swiss Chard.
