Our season runs from the second week of June to the last week of October. 2019 dates will be added when our farmer confirms them for us sometime in early spring. Members can either sign up for a full share (22 pickups) or a half share (11 pickups). This year members can choose to pick up on Saturdays and/or Wednesdays. Members can also choose to only pick up in the summer (June-August) or the fall (September-November).
Saturday pick ups allow members to select their own vegetables from large crates. On Wednesdays, members will be picking up a share pre-bagged by the farmer. Wednesday pick ups are limited to vegetables, fruit and eggs. Saturday pick ups have additional add-ons to choose from.
At each pickup, members can expect to receive between 6 and 9 types of certified organic vegetables. It is enough food to make two large vegetarian meals and sides for a week. Members will receive an email the day before pick up to let them know what the weekly variety includes. At the Saturday pick ups, members can make use of our "swap box" to trade in an item that they don't favor for something they enjoy more.
We also have a number of 'add on' shares from other local farms or Brooklyn-based purveyors. Note, you must first sign up for at least a half vegetable share to be eligible to purchase any of the 'add on' shares. See below!
An example vegetable share for each season may look like this:
