What's a sample share look like?
Great question! Thanks for asking! We've worked hard to create a well-rounded crop plan. Each week you’ll receive a Harvest List for your family’s farm share. In winter we work hard to coordinate the shares to include 8-12 things each week, including a bouquet of specialty cut flowers. Our crop plan includes 42 vegetables and fruits this year, and 6 herbs. As an added bonus for our members, we grow 43 kinds of specialty cut flowers, many that you won’t find at stores or florist shops. One of the great joys of summer is filling your kitchen with fresh-as-can-be produce and the rooms of your home with vases of fresh-from-the-field flowers.
These sample shares give you an idea of what we're aiming for:

1 quart Dragon's Tongue & Trilogy bush beans
1 bunch herbs
1 bunch Darkibor Kale
1 head Red Sweet Crisp lettuce
2 Red Wing onions
5 Adirondack Blue potatoes
3 heirloom beefsteak tomatoes
3 sweet Carmen Red Peppers
2 heads of garlic
1 bouquet of late-blooming flowers: Dahlias! with Red Spike Amaranthus, Pampas Plume Celosia, and Rudbeckia
Early Season: July 7th
1 bunch garlic scapes
1 head Green Butter lettuce
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch Dazzling Blue kale
1 bunch collards or rainbow swiss chard
1 quart cherry tomatoes
1 bunch green onions
1 bunch Valentine's Day radishes
1 bunch 1 large handful of mint
1 bouquet of early-blooming flowers: sunflowers, gomphrena, and achillea
I will try to always remember to mention that agriculture is never guaranteed. Wet springs, wind & hail damage, groundhog destruction, flooding, drought... these are all real perils. Our "crop insurance" against these weather conditions is to plant a wide diversity so that when a vegetable fails we can offer another in its place.
