A DESCRIPTION OF OUR VEGETABLE AND FRUIT SHARES
VEGETABLES. When you purchase a full vegetable share, you receive an assortment of organic veggies once a week for 22 weeks. You can also purchase a half-share, which means you pick up one full share of vegetables every other week throughout the 22 week season (i.e., 11 full weeks of vegetables). Your share will vary from week-to-week but is likely to contain six to ten items, including salad greens, herbs, root vegetables like carrots and potatoes, such seasonal favorites as cucumbers, sweet corn and tomatoes, and cooking greens, broccoli or cabbage. The full share is intended to meet the vegetable needs of a family of four.
FRUITS. The fruit share runs for 20 weeks (10 weeks for the half share) and consists of Windflower Farm's organically grown strawberries and melons and an assortment of other berries and tree fruits grown with minimal inputs by other local growers. Fruit shares begin in the early summer with strawberries, cherries and blueberries, progress in mid-summer to include peaches, plums, nectarines, and apricots, and conclude in the fall with assorted apples, pears, and cider.
