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 SHARES THROUGH OUR ON-LINE CONTRACT.
