This photo represents the contents of a weekly share in the summer! Share contents will change with the seasons, see veggies page for more details!
1. Full or Half?
A FULL SHARE (Every Week) is sized for a family of four, or two very healthy eaters. It contains 8-12 "items" of produce each week, for 20 weeks. An "item" might be something like a butternut squash, a bunch of carrots, or two large heads of lettuce. If you are an individual or a couple, a Full Share will allow you to freeze, or "put up" plenty of veggies for winter use too, saving you lots of money during the snowy season. Our shares cost $30-$45 a week, and includes free access to our U-Pick gardens 7 days a week. (See below for more details on pricing.)
A HALF SHARE (Every-Other-Week) is the same amount of produce at a time (8-12 "items") but picked up every other week, for 20 weeks (10 total pick-ups, get it?). We will designate you an "A week" pick-up or a "B week" pick-up. Because our vegetables are harvested each week just for you, washed, and quickly cooled, they are super fresh and last a lot longer than grocery store veggies. Most people find that everything except the very tender greens like spinach last for two solid weeks. The Half Share is a popular option for couples or individuals, and for busy folks who only want to drive to the farm twice a month.
2. Tuesday Evenings or Saturday Mornings?
Pick-up is at the farm, located at 2176 Elton Rd. Bloomfield, NY (Directions Here) When you come to pick up your share, you will see bins of vegetables laid out on tables, kind of like a farmer's market. Signs will tell you how much to take of each veggie (there will be some choice too), and it's great if you can bring your own bags.
Pick up your share at THE FARM on TUESDAY EVENINGS 4-6:30pm
Pick up your share at THE FARM on SATURDAY MORNINGS 8-11am
3. Choose your level of support:
The way it works is members pay upfront membership fees to the farm in the spring, so we can buy seeds, tools, and everything else we need to grow your food. Wild Hill Farm becomes your farm. We are 100% member supported, staying true to the model of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) which exists all around the world as a direct partnership between eaters and farmers.
This year we are offering the option for you to choose your level of support on a sliding scale basis. Please choose the amount that is realistic for your household income level and situation, while truly considering the value the farm and its food brings to your home. If your family income is over $80,000, we suggest you pay the upper amount, and if your family income is under $40,000, we suggest you pay the lower amount. The amount you pay is up to you.
FULL SHARE (Every Week) = $625 - $825 (20 weeks of veggies)
HALF SHARE (Every-Other-Week) = $350 - $450 (10 pick-ups of veggies)
***Full payment is due March 1st***
