Farm Shares Open for 2019
What is a Farm Share?
Paying for a seasons worth of veggies in the spring then recieving weekly boxes of food! It is a valuable partnership between the farmer and consumer that links our community to local produce and an appreciation for our environment as well as an investment in a small farm that everyone can benefit from for years to come.
Why is it good for the farmer?
It helps cover expensive spring startup costs like the seed order, equipment, and tools as well as make personal connections with our customers.
Why is it good for the Share Member?
You’re supporting your local food economy, the continuation of farm skills, soil preservation, while getting a first hand experince of where your food comes from and making healthy, seasonal choices for you and your family.
What is included in a Farm Share?
A weekly box of food includes 6-8 different farm products. It will mainly be veggies but could also include berries, Microgreens, fruit, goat milk soap, herbs, tea, honey, or maple syrup. We do a lot of experimentation on the farm and are excited to share our products with you!
Remember to go into a farm share with an open mind! You may get something you’ve never had before or a lot of something. Approach it as an opportunity to try something new!
“To say that the CSA was a wonderful addition to my life is not an overstatement.
I looked forward to the box each week as if it were Christmas. I LOVED receiving the fresh flowers because it is very rare that I splurge on them for myself and they lift the spirits each and every time you look at them.
You have a real talent for combining the blooms and greens that is unmatched by the local supermarkets, so the bouquets were a real pleasure.
I enjoyed the herb bouquets, too. I would chop them and add them to pitchers of water and that made even my water special. One week we received sprouts and they were fabulous.
The vegetables and greens that we received were so fresh and because we were unfamiliar with some of them, expanded our culinary repertoire and greatly increased our experimentation.” -Ellie
