Summer/Spring Share Info
Interested parties should email the farm in order to receive verification of their acceptance into the program and payment information. The first delivery of the new season will start sometime between mid April and the first of May, depending on weather conditions. Shares are then delivered each Wednesday for 19 weeks. You may choose from the following options:
FULL SHARE—$535 for 19 weeks ($27.50/wk) plus $10 surcharge. We recommend full shares to larger families, with four or more persons, or for smaller families that like to eat a lot of veggies!
REGULAR SHARE—$345 for 19 weeks ($17.50/wk) plus $10 surcharge. We recommend regular shares to individuals or smaller family units.
If you are having a hard time deciding if a regular or a full share is right for you, check out the farm's archived newsletters. All of the newsletters detail what produce item, and the quantity of that item, each share is given each week. This should help you understand what you can look forward to as a regular or full share member.

Members MUST pick up their shares within the allotted time frame for their pick up location or forfeit their share for the week. If you know by the day prior to that week’s deliveries that you will not be able to pick up your share, please notify the farm. Your share will not be packed for that week, and you will receive a credit for an extra box that you may use at any time through out the season. Shares are delivered each week in a wax produce box for members convenience. Members must return their previous week’s box to their pick up location each week as they pick up that week’s new box.
