Vegetable Shares are the most popular type of share we offer. During the harvest season, each week’s share includes 8-10 fresh, organic, in-season vegetables grown right here on our farm.
At Stout Oak Farm, we are committed to taking good care of the land we farm, and providing delicious, healthy, safe, food for our community. CSA Members are at the very heart of our farm, and are a vital piece of how we connect with our community and follow through on that commitment.
Each week during the harvest season, Vegetable CSA shares contain 8 to 10 different vegetables, reflecting what’s in season on the farm. The shares are designed for one household, and typically feed 2 – 4 people.
Everything in your CSA is grown right here by us, freshly picked and packed for you. Our 16 week Veggie Share CSA season is the length of the peak harvest here in Brentwood, NH.
Choose Tuesday afternoon or Saturday morning pickup. The 16-week season begins in mid June and lasts through the beginning of October. Vegetables Shares are $575, payment plans are available.
Eat With The Seasons
We grow over 40 different crops, including many heirloom varieties. CSA harvest begins in June, with plenty of greens and a few roots. Throughout the summer, we add in peas, more greens, more roots, onion family crops, and warm weather crops like cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers. As the weather cools again in the fall, we include storage roots, cabbage, and onions.
Love Your Vegetables
Delicious and Healthy Being part of a CSA means you’ll get to try new veggies, (probably) eat more veggies than you are now, and find new favorites alongside enjoying many standards you already know and love. We choose diverse crops that succeed on our human-scale organic farm in coastal New Hampshire.
Quality and Convenience Our CSA is known for its top quality, super fresh, very clean, organically grown vegetables. All of our crops are harvested, washed, bunched, and boxed by hand, specifically for your shares. Many CSA members tell us they enjoy the convenience and easy routine of having a great selection of vegetables pre-boxed and ready to pick up every week, with recipes and meal ideas.
Enjoy eating vegetables from your CSA share with coaching and inspiration from your farmers. We really love eating our own vegetables! And we’re excited to share all of our experience enjoying them. Weekly Veggie Share Members get all the benefits we offer: weekly email newsletter from your farmers (this is the good stuff!) including recipes curated for your share and our own cooking advice and experience.

Greens Box Shares
At Stout Oak Farm, we’re passionate about growing (and eating) top quality leafy greens of all kinds. You might say we’re obsessed. We’re always tasting the lettuce to make sure it’s sweet, tender, and tasty. We baby the baby Bok Choy (and so many other crops) with row cover blankets to protect their tender freshness and crunch from flea beetles and other pests. We’re getting better at growing chicories every year. Our salad conversations and variations know no bounds. Don’t get us started on mustards. And we’ve got #kalegoals.
A Greens Box CSA share is your weekly supply of fresh, nutritious, organic leafy greens. Each week, your Greens Box will include a selection of salad greens, micro greens, and cooking greens. You can sign up for a Greens Box on its own, or add it onto your Weekly Vegetable Share.
We have great variety of greens planned for 2023 including lettuce mixes, microgreens mixes, baby kale, lettuce, bok choi, tat soi, mustard greens, cabbage, radicchio, chicory, kale, Chard, Senposai, Napa cabbage, and other fresh tasty greens!

Vegetable Mini Shares
New for 2023: by popular request, a small share!
Introducing our Vegetable Mini Share–16 weeks of Stout Oak Organic vegetables for starting mid-June. We’ve heard many requests for a small CSA share, and here it is! Mini Vegetable Shares will include just 4 to 5 different seasonal vegetables each week.
This new share is designed for a household of 1, or 2 people who are looking to eat more diverse vegetables. This would also be a great share for anyone who isn’t sure about the amount of vegetables your household truly eats, or anyone wanting to try out a new healthy habit. Your share will include a variety of what we grow and harvest here at Stout Oak Farm: leafy greens, microgreens, summer veggies in season, roots, and more. Pick ups will be on Thursdays 2-6pm at Stout Oak Farm starting mid-June. There are just 30 Vegetable Mini Shares available.
Vegetable Mini Share pickups start in Mid-June (the exact date depends on the weather this spring) and run for 16 weeks, through the beginning of October. The cost is $350 for the 16-week season. Pick up your share at the farm on Thursdays, 2:00 – 6:00pm.
Foodie Adventure Boxes
For adventurous eaters and cooks.
Join us for 8 weeks of delicious peak season abundance. Your Foodie Adventure Box will feature the foods your farmers are most excited about that week, including new varieties, veggies chefs love, and abundant crops ripe for preservation.
Come on an adventure with us as we seek the best flavors through exploring trial varieties, preserve the harvest with freezing and pickling, enjoy leveling up vegetable knowledge, and boldly eating different foods. You’ll get food projects (and the instructions!) to head into your weekend with–pickling and preserving, freezing, and batch prep. You’ll help us evaluate trial varieties – we’ll be asking for feedback and homework! And best of all, you’ll get to enjoy fun foods we’re trying out and growing just for you.
Foodie Adventure Boxes are $250 8 weeks. Pickup is Thursday afternoons, 2-6pm, late July through September.
A Very Different Kind of CSA
Our newest CSA Share will highlight trial varieties of many vegetables, abundance for preserving, and crops we want to get better at growing more of. If you anticipate each new season’s freshest foods, love trying out new recipes, want to stash away tomatoes and more to eat in winter, and find conversations about which variety of turnip is the sweetest and most buttery fascinating, we think you’ll love being a Foodie Adventurer.
Foodie Adventure Boxes are not a typical CSA share in that they don’t provide you with a wide variety of veggies each week. Some weeks might be only one or two foods–to make sauce, pesto, or kimchi, for example. If you are looking for a diversity of veggies in your share, please check out our Weekly Vegetable CSA shares, and our Greens Boxes for a variety of healthy leafy greens!
The amount of food in each week’s share will be enough for a reasonable “batch” or “project” or “sampling.” We’re hoping to hit the sweet spot between worth it and not overwhelming, including for very small households.
Eating seasonally, eating locally – a delicious adventure.
Foodie Adventure Boxes start in late-July (the exact date depends on the weather) and run for 8 weeks, through September. The cost is $250 for the 8-week season. Pick up your share at the farm on Thursdays, 2:00 – 6:00pm.
