For the 2018 summer season we will offer two produce share sizes: small and large.
Both share sizes will have access to over 100 different varieties of vegetables, berries, herbs, and flowers planted exclusively for the FarmShare program over the course of the season. Each week we will harvest the freshest selection for members to choose from. The farm stand will also be set up to allow members to expand their share based on their preferences and plans for the upcoming week. We supplement our own farm produce and flowers at the farm stand with products from our fellow farmers and artisans, including beef, pork, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese, honey, and more.
Small Produce Shareholders will receive 4-5 vegetables each week and Large Produce Shareholders will receive 7-8 vegetables each week.
Small Produce Shares are suitable for individuals, couples, and families of young children that may maintain their own garden or enjoy shopping at other markets in addition to their MarketShare. Large Produce Shares are suitable for couples who cook the majority of their meals at home or who are interested in enjoying a selection of local goods each month, as well as small families.
Small Produce Share = $280/summer Large Produce Shares = SOLD OUT
