How to come prepared and about Covid compliance and safety at the event
This will of course be a Covid compliant distribution. During your customizing process you’ll be selecting a time slot to do your pick up at and we will require everyone to follow all procedures and protocols in order to pick up your share. Only one person per pickup will be allowed in order to maintain Covid compliance.
When you arrive at the pick up site you will check-in via email on your phone and we will then put you in the cue and call you in when it is your turn. Please be patient and cooperative as this will be essential to a smooth and easy distribution this year.
Of course masks will be required. Sanitizer provided and no more than 25 people allowed in the distribution space at any one time including staff. As usual bring as many grocery totes as you will need to gather and bring your share to you car. We will be assisting anyone who needs help with this process so if you need an extra set of hands we will provide it with our staffing.
Once you are inside the distribution please maintain proper social distancing and expect 30-40 minutes to complete your pick up. This year we will be packing your pantry and rice shares for you so just the grain share will require you to do your own weighing and packing.
More than 23 selections of Ancient and Heirloom Flours, Grains and Beans in an annual distribution every winter!
Oats, Cornmeal, Buckwheat, 5 Ancient and Heirloom Wheats, 7 Stone Ground Flours, Popcorn, Rye, 4 types of Heirloom Beans and more!
What Our Members Are Saying
These are just a few examples of the overwhelmingly positive experiences our members report!
I’ve been making your cool control whole wheat bread ever since you shared the recipe. It is indeed foolproof, and it is outstanding! Never before have I had success with 100% whole wheat bread and I tried for years. Thank you so much!…
…I made this loaf of rye bread per your instructions and it is outstanding!
Thanks to you, at last I am able to make
consistently excellent 100% whole grain breads.
Now I hope it will be possible to change my 2016 grain CSA from a half share to a full share. I will go the website later on and try to do that.
Many thanks again!
Grinding wheat berries and other grains to bake with has been part of our lifestyle for many years. When Ben started the PVGH CSA, we jumped at the opportunity to buy wheat that was locally grown. Now, we’ve experimented with the different varieties of wheat available from PVGH, and we have learned what our favorites are for biscuits, cookies, crumble, crusts, etc. The quality is phenomenal, and each year the distribution process has provided increased flexibility of choice. Thank you, PVHG; keep it up!
As someone who chooses not to eat wheat, I’ve gotten a lot of value out of the grain share.
Most of the baking I do is with the oats, buckwheat and corn from the share, which I grind into flour. I’m very happy with the results.
The variety of beans available is wonderful and the popcorn is always a highlight for me.
