• A selection of fruit that reflects the abundance of the season

• A dairy/protein option that includes your choice of eggs, tofu and much more

• 1/3 of all shares include artisan cheese

• Included in your membership is a subscription to Organic Gardening magazine.

Should I Do a Full or Half Share?

The half share option (every other week) is well suited to small households, or to those who travel often or are just learning to cook. With a half share, you’ll get the same amount of food as a full share, but you’ll pick up every other week.
