We aren’t just a tomato and green bean garden–we LOVE variety and trying new things!

The SHARE’s are lighter in the early summer and heavier as the season progresses. The weather and other factors can affect the yields and crop availability, and crop failure is never out of the question as a farmer. If the season should be a short one with a frost the second week in September, we assure you will still have plenty of veggies. 🙂

    Hi guys!
    Just reading through everything and printing it so Marc will read it tonight. Was wondering, if we did the Half Share (there’s only three of us, Full share looks like overwhelming quantity for us) do we still get everything listed just in smaller quantity? And will the take and share still apply?

    • Yes to same veggies, half quantity…HALF SHARE is $50 more because of additional handling. If by ‘take and share’ you mean can you share your share, the answer is YES!, it is your share and you can share and split it in any way you chose. That said–our agreement is with YOU–you would be the member (shareholder), the one promising to pay and pickup at the designated time, and the one “sharing the risk” and the rewards, too.
