Farmer John and Circle Brook Farm is happy to announce two different share options this year! The organic, locally-grown vegetable share cost for the 2017 GKCSA 24-week season is: $525 for a 3/4 Share and $675 for a Full Share
3/4 SHARE – a smaller share, approximately ¾ of the size of last year’s share. The basic share will contain on average 8 to 9 items and will include more common produce such as lettuce, tomatoes, beans, zucchini, potatoes cucumbers etc. There will be smaller quantities of some items, for example 2 or 3 instead of 4 of crops such as peppers, eggplant, squash and cucumbers, or lower weights of beans. COST: $525
FULL SHARE – this is the essentially the same as the share that has been offered during previous years. A share will on average contain 12-13 items. There will be more variety and in some cases larger quantities of products such as peas and beans in the premium share. There will be more greens in the premium, for example perhaps 2 bunches of spinach instead of one and a greens item during mid-summer when these are scarce. There may be a few items that are only provided in the premium share. While herbs will be included in the basic share they will be provided more consistently in the premium share. COST: $675
Our season is expect to commence June 8, 2017!
