Frequently asked questions
Do you grow with organic practices?
Yes, but we are not certified organic. We always grow everything in accordance with organic practices. We may offer some “high demand” item’s locally produced but not certified organic.
How much food is in a Harvest Share?
A full share is designed to be approximately 8 items, give or take a bit, sometimes more in the peak of the growing season. Sometimes a bit less in the slow season, yet we aim hard to provide 8 items for full shares and 5 items for half shares each week.
What’s an item?
An item is an average purchasable portion, i.e. a head of lettuce, a bag of spinach, a cabbage, a bunch of carrots, a portion of tomatoes, a bunch of beets, a bunch of chard, a portion of peppers, a portion of squash, eggplant, broccoli, a melon, a hard squash, a bunch of basil, collards, kale etc.
