Spring Farm Share 2024: Week 6

June 5 - 8


Week 6 - Final Week!

The clock is ticking on our Spring Farm Share—only this week remains. Now is the perfect time to secure your spot in our Summer Farm Share program. For $500, you will receive a weekly bounty of 8 fresh items over a 15-week period, including a built-in vacation week for your convenience.


Our Summer Farm Share offers a diverse array of produce. Early in the season, enjoy tender salad greens, bok choy, and Napa cabbage, transitioning into vibrant bunching roots like carrots and beets. As summer progresses, expect to see substantial brassicas, such as cabbage and kohlrabi, along with an exciting array of fruiting crops—cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes. Mid-July brings new potatoes, head lettuces, and a variety of fresh onions and herbs.

With each share, you'll experience the peak flavors of our farm's seasonal harvests. Secure your Summer Farm Share today and enjoy a summer full of fresh, nutritious, and delicious produce!


Summer hours are Tuesday - Saturday. However, Spring Farm Share pick up will remain Wednesday - Saturday, 10 - 5.

Streamlined Pickup Process for Convenience

To enhance your Farm Share experience, we've implemented new pickup procedures to ensure a smooth and efficient process. You will pick up under the tent. Items that are part of the Farm Share will be marked with a star sign and you can shop them directly from the Farmstand. Members are kindly asked to bring their selections to the cash register. Our dedicated staff will be on hand to record your choices. This change in approach will allow us a better understanding of what our Farm Share members truly want in each seasons' share. That info will help us to plan next year's plantings to better align with our members!

Recipe Ideas: Satuéed Kohlrabi with Leaves - "If you’re wondering how to cook kohlrabi, this easy sautéed kohlrabi recipe is a delicious vegan side dish and a great way to use edible kohlrabi leaves in addition to the green or purple bulb! It’s all pan fried in one skillet and comes together quickly while still packing a ton of flavor from ingredients you probably already have on hand."

$8 Strawberry Plants - 6" Pots

Storage Tips
  • Greens and Herbs: Store best in your refrigerator. Keep in a closed plastic bag. If ever feeling overwhelmed by greens, pop a bag in your freezer! They can be used frozen in smoothies or into anything you are going to cook like soups or stews.

  • Onions: Store onions in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Maintain storage temperature of 45-55°F. Do not wrap onions in plastic or store in plastic bags. A lack of air circulation will reduce shelf life.

  • Potatoes: Should be stored in a cool, dark place with good ventilation. A temperature range of 45-50°F is ideal. Avoid storing them near onions, as both release gases that can accelerate spoilage.

  • Root Vegetables: Wrap unpeeled and unwashed in a dry paper towel, and store them in an airtight food storage container or bag. Store in the coolest part of your refrigerator.

  • Sweet Potatoes: These will keep well on your counter for at least a week. For longer term storage, keep your sweet potatoes in a paper bag or basket in a kitchen cabinet, pantry, or basement. Choose a cabinet that's not near the heat of your oven. A spot closer to the floor will be cooler. Sweet potatoes prefer a temperature between 50 and 60 degrees.
