Your Weekly Share

We offer full shares for a family of 4 or 2 who eat a lot of vegetables, and half shares for 1 or 2 people. Shares include a biweekly newsletter with recipes and farm updates.  Here are some typical share examples

Shareholders receive a weekly bag of the produce we grow, from early June through early October.  See our Harvest Schedule for details.  A biweekly newsletter with recipes, farm notes, shareholder contributions, and pictures from the farm is included.  A shareholder event is hosted on the farm each year.

Shares start lighter and leafier in June and increase in size and variety with the growing season, with peak amounts in August and September.  Shareholders can purchase bulk produce like tomatoes and winter squash in season to preserve for the winter.
