2019 Farm Shares
We believe the priority of the Farm Share program is investment. We want to make an investment into our members’ health and the community. By investing into our farm, you’re supporting our livelihood and passion for providing people with delicious food. We in turn are helping to build a healthier community through sustainably-produced food. Together, we are nurturing a community by meeting other people excited about food and encouraging one another to live in meaningful and healthy ways.
When and how long does the Farm share run?
There are four options for you to choose from:
Spring Portion: Chase away the winter blues with our spring greens! The Spring Portion runs from May 16 to June 27 with shares being picked up every week. Veggies in the shares will include vegetables such as: asparagus, rhubarb, salad greens, arugula, beets, radishes, spinach, carrots, and broccoli.
Summer Portion: All the summer classic flavors without pulling a single weed! The Summer Portion will begin on July 11 so your family can celebrate the 4th of July and run until September 12. You can expect: tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, onions, broccoli, beans, cabbage, and zucchini.
Fall Portion: Share in our bountiful harvests as the colors begin to change! The Fall portion will begin September 19 and continue until December 12. You’ll receive potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkins, salad mix, carrots, beets, onions, peppers, and arugula.
Royal Portion: The Royal Portion is for you if just can’t live without your fresh veggies! Choose this option, and you’ll eat like royalty from May 16 to December 12. The Royal Portion offers you a discounted price since you’re taking part in all three portions.
The shares will be offered in one size for all four options. The size is a “Small Share” from previous years. If your family is too busy in the summer to pickup, select the Spring and Fall Portions. If you really only love summer veggies, choose the Summer Portion. If you want to eat delicious, fresh vegetables for 30 weeks and get the most bang for your buck, choose the Royal Portion.
