Special Product Shares

Special Shares

Enjoy these local products and offerings with or without ordering a main share.
WHAT ARE SPECIAL SHARES?

Special shares are just any share other than the main vegetable share, which is the core staple of our CSA. They change year to year depending on what is available- we have had milk, beer, and even kombucha shares in the past, and are always looking for new farms and local food providers to partner with!

YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR ANY AND ALL SHARES EXCEPT THE FRUIT SHARE THROUGH OUR ON-LINE CONTRACT. THE FRUIT SHARE IS BEING OFFERED DIRECTLY FROM LEWIS WAITE AND HAS ITS OWN SIGN-UP LINK!

Lewis Waite Fruit Share

Each share will be delivered every other week. Typical share will be 1/4 peck of apples, and another seasonal item like blueberries. cherries, or plums. Sourced from NYS small farms, using Organic or IPM practices preferred.

PLEASE NOTE: Enrollment and payment for this share is done through Lewis Waite’s own link below, not through our own online contract!
