What's a Farm Share?

In this increasingly popular market model, individuals and families partner with local farmers by purchasing a “share” of the harvest at the beginning of the season.  With an up-front investment in the spring, community members support the farmer, share the harvest and in turn become an important and active part of their farm.  As a shareholder, one is provided with fresh, organic produce each week throughout the season.  At pick-up, members come to the farm, visit the fields, chat with the farmers and head home with their arms full of this week’s bounty. We then all share in the beauty, abundance and risks of local food production---the land becomes the community’s farmland, not just the farmers.  

Blue Star Equiculture Farm Share 2013

The cost of our share reflects what we’ve calculated as our operating costs for the season. As shareholders, the cost is split, the same way the bounty of the our harvest is shared.  Designed to feed a family of 2-4 people (2 adults and 2 children), the size of your share each week is based on what you think you need and will use for the coming week.  Pick-ups are on Sundays—we harvest in the morning and you and your family arrive mid-day to take home your share! What items you take and in what amounts is up to you—we ask only that you think of your other shareholders and take only what you will use.  We will be open about which items are in short supply, and which items are in abundance.  Shareholders are encouraged to take home extra to put-by for the winter months.  We hope this share can continue to nourish your family long after our last pick-up.  As we all know, the gardens offerings change throughout the summer and each week will reflect that.

Half Shares/Splitting Shares: We do not offer half shares, but you may split a share with another household as long you do not break the 4 person (2 adults and 2 children) parameters. We ask that you provide the name of both half-shareholder households when you sign up. Shareholders splitting a share are responsible for coordinating payments on their share as a single unit, rather than two half-units.

Payment: A 50% non-refundable deposit is due when signing up. The balance is due by the first pick-up on June 2nd. Here, we present two payment options where you may either pay in full for your share, or or pay half now and half later.
