What's in the share?

See all share options here.

The season is from June to November. To give you a general sense of what you will get in a share, here’s an example of what we got last year in the the individual vegetable and full fruit shares.

Each member is purchasing a share of what the farm produces for the year. There are always risks in farming, but the farm minimizes these risks by planting a diversity of crops, and following regular planting successions. Nature tends to balance the offerings. For example, a dry season for arugula will mean a great crop of tomatoes.
