Here's Our Harvest Calendar
How much does a share cost?
$555 - On-Farm Pick-Up (plus $45 split-share fee, if applicable)
$555 - Boston-Area Pick-Up.
Can I share a share?
Of course. You can share with friends and trade pick-ups or share with someone for just the summer if you go away on vacation. There is an additional $45 for split-shares that are picked up at the farm to help cover the additional costs of pick-your-own, parking, administration, etc. There is no extra charge to split Boston-Area shares.
And of course, if one share?s not enough food, buy two. If you go away on vacation, you can give your share to your neighbor. Be creative!!
How do I know what is the right amount of produce for me?
Since, for most people, this is a new way of buying food, it is sometimes difficult to determine how it all will work in real life! We feel confident that our recommendations are accurate. Of course, if you are still not sure, please call us and we will have you speak with a current shareholder.
