Starting June of 2020, we will have our full farm stand at the Montgomery Farmers Market! If you're a Montgomery resident, come join us through our market share program!
What is a Farm Share?
Farm Share, also known as Community supported Agriculture or CSA, is a program that allows customers to get more bang for their buck while supporting their local farmer. Farm Shares are purchased in advance, before the season even starts, to help the farmer pay for their very high costs in the spring. In return, customers receive a far better value for their money.
We offer two types of Shares: a Delivery Share and a Market Share. Each comes with a unique set of advantages to consider when deciding which is right for you.
Delivery Share: With a Delivery Share, your household receives a weekly, farmer curated box of assorted vegetables for our 25 week season from May through November (2021). These boxes can range anywhere from $20 to $40 weekly depending on the size of your share. You can choose a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday delivery, midday (12-3pm) or evening (4-7pm). We suggest someone is home to receive the box upon delivery or soon after. Generally, this option gives you the most bang for your buck and is also convenient if our markets are out of your way.
Small – $500 Ideal for households of 1-2, our small delivery share provides a very manageable amount of produce valued at approximately $26 per week. If you’re unsure how much you can handle or generally keep it light on the veggies, this option may be right for you.
Medium – $750 Our most popular share size, the medium delivery share is great for families of 2-4 and supplies an ample amount of produce (just under $40 weekly). This option is best for households that regularly consume vegetables and want to get a great bang for their buck!
Large – $1,000 If your big family loves their veggies, the large delivery share is a must! Valued at over $50 weekly, this option provides exceptional value and a generous amount of fresh, delicious produce.
A sample medium box containing: 4 bell peppers, 1 large head of cauliflower, 2 pounds potatoes, 2 large eggplants, 1 pound tomatoes, 1 pound broccoli, 1 bunch kale, 1 red cabbage, and 2 acorn squash.
Market Share: The other, more flexible option is the Market Share. Here, customers receive a “market card” loaded with credit that can be spent anytime at any of our local markets. No need to remember cash when shopping at our markets! Just pick out what you’d like and we’ll deduct the total from your account. This option is preferable to those who would rather control what crops they receive on their own time.
Small – $200 ($220 credit)
Medium – $400 ($440 credit)
Large – $600 ($660 credit)
