Share FAQ

Welcome to the Share family! We know you have lots of questions and we will try hard to answer them.

Rules of the Road

  • We will be pre-boxing all of the shares

  • We will not be able to accommodate any substitutions. 

  • The share may change at the last minute due to product availability.

  • If you are unable to pick up your share, feel free to gift that week to a friend. Please have them pick it up with your last name. 

  • Any shares that are not picked up by the end of the week, Saturday, will be donated.

  • Please realize that if you miss your pick up, we will hold your share only until Saturday. We do not repack your share if you come later in the week. This is especially important for the bread share. Bread is ordered for delivery on the day of pick up and may only stay fresh for one or two days.

  • Other provisions can be purchased on site when you pick up your share. (Winter: must be ordered online)

  • We appreciate that we have made many changes to the way we have distributed shares in the past. Know that these changes are to keep both our customers and the White Barn Farm crew safe.
