Large Summer Veggie Share
One size only for winter shares, every other week. This is a mix of storage crops like winter squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, radishes, turnips, greens from out greenhouses like kale, spinach, and salad mix, and preserved items from our farm like popcorn, dried chili peppers, dried herbs, and canned tomatoes. We also include occasional "treats" to spice it up and add variety. These are products from local producers like honey, hot sauce, mushrooms, etc.
This is a grand array of all the produce our farm grows – from arugula to zucchini (with many many stops in between). Our share includes the classic farm icons, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, greens, peppers, onions, eggplant, and garlic, with a mix of some unusual and potentially less well-known veggies. We keep it interesting, yet recognizable. Our regular size summer veggie share can feed anywhere from 2 big-time produce eaters to 5 produce dabblers. This share includes full access to our Pick-Your-Own Garden (Note: PYO Garden is open to members from any of our sites, but is located at the farm in Hadley, MA, about 2 hours drive from Boston).
Small Summer Veggie Share
This share size is good for couples or a single person who cooks at home most days. It will generally consist of the same items as the regular share in smaller quantities as well as access to the Pick-Your-Own Garden (Note: PYO Garden is open to members from any of our sites, but is located at the farm in Hadley, MA, about 2 hours drive from Boston)
Western MA is home to a spectacular variety of fruit – this option is available to those with a veggie share, and consists of a weekly highlight of seasonal, local fruit. We source the fruit from many different farms and will always tell you about their growing practices and what they are all about. This past season has featured strawberries, blueberries, currants, gooseberries, peaches, nectarines, plums, pears, apples, watermelons, and more. Same schedule as veggie share. NOTE: fruit is organic whenever possible, but is sometimes low-spray, IPM, or conventional
Our pastured free-range hens strut around all day munching on bugs, grass, veggies, and organic grain. They are not only an unending source of entertainment, but produce incredibly delicious eggs. Same schedule as veggie share.
