One of the most exciting new ways to support the farm is through buying Market Share Member Cards. We designed them to replace the half-share CSA option with a much more flexible and supportive program than a pre-packed box.
Full Share members have something in common: they love to cook. Generally, a Full Share member can handle the vast amount of produce that comes in a share from our fields by being able to schedule time in the kitchen. Many Half Share members, in contrast, were challenged with time, money, family size, and cooking knowledge... what they really wanted to do was have access to fresh, organic produce, support the farm, and explore all the seasonal flavors.
Now, with the Market Share Membership Card, Half Shares have even more flexibility to meet the demands of the most extremely busy schedules.
Can't make a pickup? No worries! Market Share Memberships are punch cards which expire at the end of the season. They can be used anytime our barn or market stand is open for sales and CSA distribution.
Don't want anything you can't put in a smoothy? No problem. Punch cards can be spent on anything in our barn from produce to prepared foods - so long as it comes from our farm (not bread or honey for example).
Market Share Memberships will be sold in blocks of 7 cards for $350, with an option for any member to buy more cards at $50 each at anytime. Punches are made in $5 increments. While no change is given, each $50 card comes with $60 worth of punches.
One word of advice is to use the cards regularly to enjoy the bounty of the season. Saving all the cards until October will result in a greatly diminished selection.
Market Share Memberships were designed to encourage card holders to try out a lot of different items from our farm.
