Farm Share

An investment in local farms, a commitment to healthy food.  

A Farm Share is a great way to incorporate fresh local produce into your diet, and to support small farmers in your community.  You pay the full cost of your Farm Share at the beginning of a season, and then you pick up your weekly box of food at either the West Broad Farmers Market (Saturdays) or Williams Farm (Fridays).

Our Farm Share is a relationship between our farmer network and our customers, or Farm Share “members.”  By purchasing a Farm Share membership, you will be supporting local businesses.

The Spring 2018 Farm Share will run from April 6th, 2018 to June 30th, 2018.

Our Growing Practices

Our growing practices include:

    • Record keeping

    • Use of organic inputs

    • Integrated pest management

      Sample Share: Enough Produce for a Family of Four!

    • Food safety

    • Crop rotation

What to Expect 

Each Farm Share will consist of at least 8 items:

  • 5 crops (vegetables)

  • 1 herb

  • 1 fruit/mushroom

  • 1 pantry product (eggs, honey, bread)

Cost

One Farm Share requires a one-time upfront payment of $290 yielding at least 8 items weekly for a 12 week season. That’s less than $25 a week!

We also offer a reduced cost share that allows SNAP/EBT customers to purchase a Farm Share membership for only $12/week!

Donate a Farm Share

If you are interested in supporting our reduced-cost Farm Share program, we have an option to donate a Farm Share to help make fresh, healthy produce available to all of our community! One donated share can supply up to 3 full Farm Shares to low-income families.

The full cost of a donated share (minus sales tax) is a tax-deductible contribution.

Spring Farm Share registration is now closed.
