Winter and Spring Shares
In addition to our summer season FarmShare, which provides produce from June through October, we are also offering additional shares to help spread our food around the circle of the year. Our Winter Shares begin with a very generous Thanksgiving Share in the middle of November, and continue until the middle of February, about every two weeks (with some breaks for holidays, because we are people, too!). The Winter Share is a flexible, by-the-pick-up share, where you only choose the weeks that work for you.
Our Spring Share starts the regular FarmShare season early, with the tenderest, juiciest treats from the early spring garden, for those who love salads and greens. In 2018, the Spring Share began in the middle of April, with a weekly share for six weeks; it will be somewhere between 4 and 6 weeks for 2019.
Six weeks of tender "firsts" out of the garden, $120.
Pick up on the farm each Wednesday, any time between 4 and 9 pm. The share will be pre-bagged and stored in a refrigerator, so you can help yourself at your convenience. Farmers will be available if you have questions or wish to buy eggs or meat at the same time.
DONE FOR 2018! Thank you, members!
We will not start signing up for 2019 until January.
A bounteous box of amazing storage crops from your farm, to help tide you over until next summer season, or at least to make a holiday dinner for the family.
The Thanksgiving share is like a regular FarmShare, but MORE. This share is just $25. Get all the produce you’ll need for your big holiday dinner! Pick up on the farm the weekend before Thanksgiving, when you get your Turkey (or not!).
Then the storage shares begin. The shares are free choice, with members selecting between the available vegetables, which we expect to include potatoes, onions, shallots, winter squash of several kinds, rutabaga, garlic, turnips, beets, leeks, daikon radishes, and watermelon radishes. The available produce will have some variation from date to date.
We are offering two sizes of Winter Share for 2018/19: a 30# share for $75 (which is what we have been doing), or a 15# share for $40.
You choose when to get the share: all six pick-up days, to really keep you fed for winter, or just one or two, if that fits your family better. For 2018, the Thanksgiving share is the weekend before Thanksgiving, and the other shares are December 5th and 19th, January 16th and 30th 2019, and February 13th 2019, with Free Choice pick-up on the farm between 12 and 6 pm, and the option for Farmer's Choice pre-boxed pick-up at your convenience the next day.
Deposits are due when you sign up; payment in full is due when you pick up.
