Extra 2016 Sustainable share - 34 remaining weeks - 9/8/16 - 4/30/17


Due to a long time shareholder getting a job transfer we have an opening in our 2016 sustainable share schedule.  Sustainable shares are year round shares that allow you to make a bigger contribution to the farm, and share an acre of produce with only 25 other weekly sustainable shareholders.  Sustainable shareholders will receive shares all year with winter shares containing preserved veggies from the surplus over the summer, as well as greens and roots from our new high tunnel.  Sustainable shares are 26L (¾ bu.)  


This sustainable share will stretch from 9/8/2016 through 4/30/17 and can be either weekly (34 weeks) or biweekly (17 weeks).   The cost of this share is prorated to match the shortened length.  If you choose weekly deliveries, the cost will be $1180.00, and for biweekly, the cost will be $654.oo.  


Purchase of this sustainable share comes with all the benefits of all other shares including the following.

  • Access to add-on shares from other local producers

  • pastured eggs

  • raw honey

  • grass fed meat

  • Berkshire pork

  • ancient grains and beans

  • line caught salmon

  • chemical free raspberries

  • organic blueberries

  • Weekly newsletters with wonderful recipes and happenings on the farm

  • First claims to purchase any extra produce for the week

  • Participation in farm events such as our spring meet and greet, composting and canning demos, campouts on the farm and a shareholder harvest potluck
