Don’t forget to bring your own bags to pickup! Pick your own items are available any day, not just your pickup day. Its a good idea to bring your own scissors, just in case!

Whats Happening At the Farm
We keep track of the weekly distributions through the season, both to be sure that each pickup day is getting the same items, and to monitor the value of your share. We have been through seventeen weeks of pickup, and using conventional store prices (like Stop&Shop or IGA) the share value is already $540. That doesn’t take into account any u-pick items like strawberries, peas, herbs, and flowers. It also doesn’t include the typical “organic” markup you would find in stores like Whole Foods or Wild By Nature. With five or six more weeks to go, we expect the share value to be over $700, quite a deal!
