FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What is in a FARM SHARE?

Your share will contain a variety of in-season vegetables, dependent on the growing month. Our goal is to have between 3-5 different spring crops in June, 6-10 different mid-summer crops, and lots of roots, squashes, and potatoes in the fall months. We will strive to have at least one portion of greens every week and expect that early in the season there will be plenty of greens in your share. A share will make 2-3 meals for two people on a vegetarian diet, depending on the season or will make enough side dishes for a family of four for about a week.

What if I don’t know how to cook something?

One of the benefits of eating fresh, in-season produce is discovering new foods that you might not otherwise purchase at the grocery store. To help you make the most of your FARM SHARE, we provide recipes in every weekly newsletter. Many of our shareholders have turned a mysterious veggie into a new family favorite!

What if I miss a week?

We are busy people ourselves and we understand that sometimes life interferes with our routines.  If you know that you are not able to make a pick-up, please let us know ahead of time and we will work with you to find a solution. This could include having a friend or family member pick-up for you, picking up on a different day, or skipping a week.

How do I pick up my share?

Pick-up at the farm will be on Mondays or Wednesdays between 3-7 pm. You will select the day you prefer at signup and will come to the farm every week on that day. Please bring your own bags to pack up your produce!

How does Pick Your Own work?

At certain times of the season, and for particular crops, a portion of your share may be pick-your-own. We anticipate this for peas, beans, cherry tomatoes, and herbs. Having shareholders who are excited about pick-your-own for a few select crops will keep our labor costs down and help ensure the success of our farm. Pick your own is also a fun way for families to spend an afternoon! Expect to spend between 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the season, picking up your share.

 

What if I don’t like something in my share?

While we encourage our shareholders to make use off all their weekly share, we understand that there may be times when you have too much of one item or absolutely hate another. In those cases, you are welcome to leave those items behind and we will do our best to re-home them. Since we harvest just enough produce for our shares, we ask that you do not trade unwanted items for more of something else because it might not leave enough for others.
