What to Expect
We want to feed our families the best food possible. We want it to be nutritious and health giving, and providing the dietary foundation for the type of health we know is possible. But we do not trust the agricultural processes that are used to grow our food.
Increasingly it feels impossible to navigate the grocery stores and assess the validity of the health claims we see everywhere, forcing us to make decision after decision with incomplete information. This is unsettling to say the least, but a problem that we are dedicating our lives to solving.
ON THE FARM
When grown in healthy and vibrant soils, we believe food can be medicine. This ideal guides all of the decisions we make on the farm, and keeps us focused on growing produce to keep you and your family healthy and thriving.
The produce in your box will have always been harvested within a day or two of you receiving it (getting you produce 5 to 10 times quicker than produce purchased through traditional channels). We see the word fresh everywhere, and it has lost its meaning. But when food is actually fresh, it contains a much higher percentage of its original nutritional value.
IN YOUR Share
We typically include:
1 bag of carrots
1 head of lettuce
1-2 bunches of greens (kale, chard, spinach)
1 bag of potatoes
1-2 onions, shallots, leeks, or garlic
4-6 specialty items
We focus on primarily staple products but include a few specialty items that vary depending on the season. This may include:
Leeks, broccoli, fennel, radishes, arugula, stir-fry mix, turnips, or beets
Our Farm Share costs less than $30 total per week for all of your produce. If there is an item in your box that you do not particularly enjoy, you can always sub the item out using our ‘trade box.’
AT THE Pick-up SITE
There will be a stack of boxes and a clipboard at each pick-up site. Check off your name on the clipboard, and take the size box that you have signed up for. If there are any challenges or complaints let us know. We want your drop off site experience to be smooth and effortless.
We completely understand that everyone has vegetable preferences. At every pick-up site there will be a ‘trade-box’ where you can swap vegetables. All we ask is that you use the box responsibly and trade one or two items at most.
FROM YOUR FARMERS
We will be sharing recipes, news from the farm, and updates about produce through a weekly newsletter that you will receive via email before each drop-off.
You will receive the newsletter the week prior to your share arriving so you can plan your meals for the week and shop for extra items (i.e. dairy, grain, eggs, meat), if needed, ahead of time.
We may also slip some printed recipes or instructions into your box from time to time. You can also reference recipes on our recipe page.
