Spring Shares Will Begin Thursday, March 19th!
SPRING SHARES SOLD OUT
Our Spring Shares run from mid-March to the end of May, with pickup on Thursdays after 3:30pm. We cap our Spring Share membership at 50 shares, so we encourage you to sign up early. The spring share largely consists of greens we are able to grow in our greenhouse over the winter (spinach, lettuce, chard, bac choi, cilantro, kale etc.), early herbs from our perennial beds, the first flowers of Spring, and asparagus from the field in the mid to late Spring! The first week of shares will also receive any vegetables we have left over from our walk-in. Our Spring Share has been described in the past as a CSA Share for die-hard members, and as such we would like to encourage you to be aware that the Spring does not offer much in produce besides greens. It differs greatly from the Summer Share, and we don’t want any members to be discouraged from purchasing a Summer Share by the size or contents of the Spring Share! That being said, it is a great way to receive fresh, local produce as soon as the winter starts to fade!
If you miss your pick up day, you risk the chance of your veggies freezing if the temps are much below freezing. This is only a threat for the first couple of weeks of pick up. You’re welcome to pick up anytime after your harvest day. No need to let us know. The sooner you pick up, the fresher your veggies will be.
If you are going away for a week, make someone smile. You can have a friend, neighbor or family member pick up the basket for you. If you don’t have someone who can pick up your basket, we’ll donate your basket to a family in need through the Fitzwilliam Nursing Association. Let us know the donation date at firstname.lastname@example.org at least a few days before you’re pick up date.
Every spring share member has 2 baskets. You bring your first basket back with you when you pick up your 2nd basket, leaving it under the farm store shelf and continue like that through the season. If you forget your basket, you end up with a bag of shame the next week. To help us save time, bags and avoid receiving a bag of shame, please remember your baskets each week! Thank you! You’re also welcome to bring your own reusable bag each week to pick up your veggies and leave your bag under the farm store shelf.
Our spring shares are different from summer and fall shares as there isn’t nearly as much variety coming in. The picture to the left is a heavier spring share week which begins in May. Some weeks you’ll only be receiving 2-3 items.
Spring shares must be paid in full by May 1st. For example: half in February and half by May 1st.
