FRUIT SHARE

Good Morning!

Time to add your FRUIT SHARE to your Veggie Share.  We are signed up direct with 2 fruit outlets–One is a USDA Organic certified outlet in Washington state, the other Market Day Foods out of Bozeman.  The Fruit Share will be weekly–guaranteed better (or so we think) than what you can buy in the store.  Through Market Day we will have access to the Rainier and Flathead Cherries, and other regional items.  SHARE will include the Riverton raspberries and our regular fall fruit truck coming from a large orchard in Utah–peaches and pears, some apples if we want…32# to 40# boxes for sale for the Canners, too.   

Cost is $265 Half, $480 Full, added to your CSA Agreement by Addendum.  I need 30 shares to complete a weekly order and make the program work–GIVE ME A SHOUT BACK, PLEASE!  (6 Fruit Shares right now–Sign up this month and Pay before JUNE 1st–up to a 5 month pay plan also available.)

The Farmer’s Wife–in eager anticipation!

    Hello Farmer’s Wife!

    I would really like to have more fruit this year.  If we can work out a full share I would like to do that.  I can pay some and earn some or pay for it all.  Depending on the payment plan I will do the 1/2 share or full, but would like to work out the full.  My expenses are less this year after I pay off all the medical debt I incurred last week.

    Hi Terri, Do you sell mini shares in the fruit, or know anyone that would want to split a half share? Thanks, Rebecca

  3. Kim–This year the Fruit Share will be weekly, hopefully at the same time as you pick up your Veggie Share…have to work out the cooler space and logistics on that one yet. Fruit is good quality–USDA certified Organic. I think we had two of the Fruit Shares last year from the Washington wholesaler. Yes, to the taste test…not as good as what was hanging on grandma’s tree when I was 8 years old…but better than a lot of the stuff in the store. We personally have been buying their produce all winter. The MT wholesaler will be providing the cherries, some MT peaches, and other fruit that has a strong presence in their region. Not certified organic, but transparent on their practices–as we are. I expect the MT fruit to be better in taste as it is fresher off the trees than the WA wholesaler. As to the raspberries and peaches/pears out of Utah, these were what we carried last year–I love ’em! I think the share this year should surpass what we had last year. By buying wholesale we should get more for our money than in 2013, and as we are now signed with them the transportation cost will be lower. Hope this helps to persuade you– 😉 Need 30 to make the magic happen! The Farmer’s Wife

    Please answer a few question to help me decide about the fruit share Approx how many weeks are involved? And how much product? Did we receive any products from either company last year? Have you been able to taste test product from either one? Thank you 🙂 Kim
