Cost?  

Cost depends on share type:
  • Large shares are $525.  (~$28/week) This size works well for larger households, for sharing with others, or for those couples that really like vegetables.  During the peak summer season, members may receive up to a bushel of produce.  
  • Medium shares are $385.  (~$21/week) Perfect for 1-2 people.  Members will typically receive a 1/2 bushel of produce.
  • Small shares are $215. (~$22/week) Perfect for 1 person who may not need a large quantity of vegetables every week. Small shares are the same size as medium shares, but are picked up every other week (9 total weeks) 
  • Spring green shares are $80.  ($20/week)  You'll get 4 weeks of greens which may include lettuce, arugula, baby kale, baby chard, and some asian greens.  Pick-up will be arranged depending on demand.
