Shared Legacy Farms is a small, organic farm on 2 acres in Elmore. It was founded in 2008 by Kurt Bench with 12 shares, and has doubled in size every year since. In 2013, we are finally reaching our goal of becoming full-time farmers, as Farmer Kurt can finally leave his day job and focus exclusively on our CSA. We deliver to six sites: the Perrysburg Farmer's Market, Owens Illinois (Perrysburg), Toledo Farmer's Market, the Jewish Family Services in Sylvania, downtown Port Clinton at the Sutton Center, and our home farm in Elmore. Our CSA lasts for 19 weeks (June-October), and includes: a Family Organic Vegetable Share for $680, a Fruit Share for $360 that includes local fruits grown by neighboring farms, an organic Vegetable Half-Share ($360), and a Full or Half Egg Share ($65/$32.50). Visit our website for a link to our registration page. Members also receive our popular weekly newsletter featuring recipes to try, tips for preparing or storing your produce, and general news about the farm. You'll also be invited to six rotating farm events throughout the season like Spring Planting days, Potluck Farm day with a Hayride Tour, Pesto Fest, Farm Olympics, Scavenger Hunt, Canning Classes, Daddy-Daughter Campouts, Bonfire Pumpkin Hunt, and Salsa Fiesta.
