Our Family share is our most popular size and is half bushel box with between 5 and 20 pounds of produce! Everything from radishes and kohlirabi to zucchini and pumpkins to tomatoes and peppers will find their way into your box at sometime during the season. In 2013 the average share weight was around 15 pounds. The first weeks of the season are always lighter but by mid-July they are usually overflowing! We pack the "core" box for you and this will typically have between 5 and 8 different items in it. We will also offer "Members Choice" items each week. These allow you to customize your share a little. Some weeks you may have just one members choice, but as the season progresses you should have several. For example the core box for week 20 of our 2013 season included 3 pounds of potatoes, a large red cabbage, 1-1/2 pounds of turnips, a large onion, 2 acorn squash, a butternut squash and lettuce. Everyone then had a choice of 4 Members choice items. They could pick from turnips, beets, four different types of winter squash, green tomatoes, bell peppers, sweet banana peppers, poblano peppers, a pie pumpkin, more onions, more potatoes, or local winesap apples.

Taster shares are a peck of produce each week - these will be a little more then half of what is in a Family Share. These are designed for a single person or couple who eats out a lot or a family who still wants a reason to visit the farmer's market each week! 1 or 2 members choice items will also be included.

Super shares are almost twice the family share. Get this if you are planning on spliting a share between two families or want enough to freeze for the winter. You will receive a couple extra members choice items each week.

We will also offer a fall share which will be available for purchase early summer.
