Full Share – $550 - This share is delivered weekly for 18 weeks and includes a nice variety of fresh produce, some herbs and occasionally flowers. It is packed in a 1 1/9 bushel box (the boxes are 18”X12”X12” in case you were wondering). These weigh about five pounds early in the season and then get up to about 30 pounds later in the season. I estimate (this is just an estimate now, I don’t know how you really eat) that this share could feed two serious vegetarians or a family of four.
Payment for Alumni Members: The same as always, either pay the whole works in one shot by June 1. Or pay half by June 1 and the other half by October 1.
Payment for Brand New Members: There are two options:
1. Pay the whole works by June 1.
2.Pay in two shots but if you decided to do that you must write two checks and send them both to the farm by June 1. So one check would be dated June 1 and the second one would be dated October 1. I’ll carefully hold your second check until at least October 1.
Sorry For The Inconvenience: Deciding to not do our usual 18 weeks this coming summer was a difficult decision to make. But we think it's the right one due to the timing of everything. We hope our members understand. Wait, of course they'll understand, because our members are awesome!
