About our shares

Here are a few notes about our shares:

All of our produce is certified organic, and grown using an array of techniques ranging from traditional to modern, with a few adaptations I have learned along the way.

Produce is cleaned on the farm prior to delivery, using our biennially tested well water.  Leaves are rinsed twice. 

All shares receive harvests from June 20th to October 31st.  

Late season harvests include dry beans, storage potatoes, carrots, onions, winter squash and cold tolerant greens (green onions, kale, winter lettuce, spinach, etc).

To ensure I meet my commitment, I plant a little more than is needed to cover for the occasional setback in the season.

On the Thursday before the harvest, I will post an estimate of what you will receive on the website (On the page “This Weeks Harvest”).  This will allow you to plan.

I have to emphasize that if there are crops you want more of less of, please let me know as soon as possible, so that I can plant less or more of a certain crop.

Quantity per share can be adjusted slightly, provided no-one else is short changed.  However, making adjustments is much easier if I know before I start planting in the spring.  The earlier you sign on, the better I will be able to tailor your share.

The quantities for Beans, Peas, Potatoes, Carrots, etc are usually the average amount – if there is extra, all shares are topped up.

In the hottest part of the summer, I usually give two or three small  heads of lettuce per share instead of 1 or 2 large heads (they are harvested early to prevent the plants from going to seed early in hot weather).

Sometimes there is a lot of extra produce (such as Carrots or Tomatoes).  On these weeks, I notify all customers that extra food is available.  Those who want to preserve food have the opportunity to take extra.  Contact me in advance, ideally a week before your harvest delivery.  First come, first serve.
