Summer Vegetable CSA– FULL or HALF share: Reserve your vegetables all season long.
The farm grows a HUGE variety of vegetables and herbs for the CSA, and what is in your share evolves with each season. Less produce is available in the spring when the farm is just starting to produce. Shareholders pay up front, and provide the farm’s operating budget for the season. Shares cost $450.00 and must be paid in full no later than May 15. Half Shares cost $275.00– CREDIT CARD FEE IS ADDED UNLESS PAYING BY CASH OR CHECK.
***Vegetable Shares are now picked up at the farmstand! We are right next to the Lebanon Post office in Lebanon, Maine. Pick up is from 4:30-6:30 pm each Monday during the 15 week season (June to September; rain, shine, or holidays). Shares are designed to feed the typical family of four that cooks most meals at home, or two adult vegetarians (lists of past years’ distributions are on our BLOG.) What’s in a share varies and depends on the growing season: This list varies every year depending on season.

Marketshares: Buy farm products in advance and get 20% free! —
This is an easy, low commitment option! For each $100.00 marketshare purchased before May 01, get a $120.00 credit to shop for any of our products at any of our markets and farm stand. Most folks buy several so it lasts all season, and they can save more money. This option is great for those who want to support local agriculture, save money at markets and the farm stand, but ALSO want to choose their own veggies as needed, and want to shop at different markets. Many people who buy a vegetable share also buy marketshares because there are things like cheese, eggs, meats, maple syrup and more available for sale during the Monday CSA pick up. This option is also great for churches, food pantries, or other organizations that want to purchase local, organic food for other community members in need.
