IS A SUMMER SHARE?
The summer share is flexible and can be
tailored to your household’s needs. Weekly
distributions consist of rationed and
un-rationed produce, so you can take
what you like and leave what you don’t.
There are 10 to 20 different items
available each week, plus u-pick
options, most of which are unlimited.
When we say unlimited we mean it!

consisting of the stored bounty of summer, as
well as greens from the field and passive
greenhouses. Being a winter shareholder
is a powerful way to connect to your
local food source and eat with the season.
Winter Share information
how are the SHARES PRICED?
Shares are sold by household. The farm offers
a bounteous harvest and members partake
of this bounty, some families need more, some
need less. The share price is a reflection
of how much it costs to sustainably run
the farm rather than a dollar value of each vegetable.
Because of the high quality
and low price of the share, shared shares
are not allowed, except in special
circumstances. If you like to eat fresh
healthy food at a good price, you will be
a happy member of our CSA.
