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!

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.
